Josh Flagg's taut, perfectly-constructed glistening power pop on Devastate Me summons a more muscular Cheap Trick, Big Star on a bender or the Foo Fighterswith frontloaded melodies.  Flagg's got a rough, ragged voice, and it scrapes against the songs' jagged guitars and deftly counteracts the bright, soaring harmonies. Throughout, Devastate Me is the perfect balance of sweet and sour.  Like the man himself, Flagg's songs are brawlers with busted noses, but hearts of gold.
