Album Review #1:
“Longtime L.A. scenester Jensen Bell has released a gem of a power-pop record called Modern Dating Tips. Aided and abetted by some of Los Angeles’ finest pop musicians (Robbie Rist, Drummer Jim Laspesa, keyboardist Morley Bartnoff and Muffs leader Kim Shattuck among them) Jensen offers up a concept album about a guy’s (ultimately unsuccessful) quest for happiness with the opposite sex.
From the sweet opening salvo of “Askin You Out” to the lyrically resigned (yet musically cheerful) “Happening (Parting Advice),” Modern Dating Tips is a disk that gets better and better on repeated spins. The rollicking “Her City’s Got A Train,” the punchy duet with Shattuck on “Happy Chocolate” and the hilarious “The Swear-Off Song” are the personal picks to click, and the whole deal closes with a beautiful orchestrated ballad worthy of Brian Wilson, “Love Stained Eyes.” “
