Boy - Every Page You Turn
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Boy - Every Page You TurnHis promising debut suggested that Canada had produced another flamboyant pop artist like Rufus or Hawksley. But the followup album by Whitehorse native Boy (aka Stephen Kozmeniuk) is much closer to the rock charms of Sloan or Sam Roberts—not a bad thing either. The frenzied garage rocker “Up in This Town” and the surging “Same Old Song” reflect his early ’70s influences. And on “The New Number Two” instrumental and the dreamy “A Line to Stand Behind,” Boy’s melodic gifts shine on like crazy diamonds.
