POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

June 15, 1997|Sara Scribner

** 1/2 The Seahorses, "Do It Yourself," Geffen. John Squire, former guitarist for '80s-rock pioneers the Stone Roses, tosses the Roses' alternative stylishness for a practically stodgy classic-rock sound on this debut from his new band. Moving, tossed-off-feeling moments such as the silly "Happiness Is Eggshaped" and the extraterrestrial blast "Round the Universe" almost compensate for irritatingly beefy guitar solos and psychedelic mushiness. But not quite.

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
