    Fresno, CA's Miss Alans is the latest indie veteran to ink a deal and step up to the big league batter's box without altering its sound or style much. Though not as sonically challenging as Smack the Horse and All Hail Discordia -- again, major-label recording budgets often smooth out the sound of bands even if they don't change much -- there's a fair amount of intriguing stops along this 14-song, 55-minute road. The band is at its best on "Victoria" and "Vapor Black Cherry," where the hazy mystery of the guitars is more urgent, circular trance patterns like smoke at dusk. Or "Eldorado," where the bass freely roams under gently stroked guitar before a hissing chorus. On the minus side, some of the songs strike one as filler, and Scott Oliver sometimes sounds more like he's snoring rather than singing, or as if he just awoke. One wonders if that's his natural voice. But there's enough here of value to hope this foursome can break from the pack of all the other new, freshly signed pretenders. ~ Jack Rabid
