Review: Pan Am Down - One

Pan Am Down - One
2009, Imperfect Smile Records

Brooklyn's Pan Am Down offers up a collection of acoustic guitar based folk songs on One. This is a pleasant listening featuring a plaintive, bland guitar style and the pleasant lead vocals of Joshua R. Kraemer, but fails to excite or challenge the listener. There are no real highs or lows to the album; Pan Am Down maintains pretty much the same intensity, volume and presence throughout the disc. Consequently songs pass without a distinct sense of individuality. While Winter Near A Great Lake and How Long With It Take do peak above the horizon, One stays consistent to a fault.

Rating: 2 Stars (Out of 5)
