Album Review: "Dinosaur" by Theory of a Deadman

Roadrunner Records

Producer: Martin Terefe

Canadian pop-rockers TOAD kick off Dinosaur in style with the album’s title track. A pro-environment, end-of-the-world party missile, it escapes the dogmatic moralizing that plagued their previous effort. Relationship-themed burners “Medusa (Stone)” and “Sick” are equal parts catchy and high-octane. Best of all is “Two of Us (Stuck),” a devilishly clever twist on soul classic “Just the Two of Us.” The second half loses some steam, yet none of the 10 tracks qualify as duds. – Andy Kaufmann
