The rootsy power pop quartet Right as Rain unfortunately released their two albums on the estimable DB Records label just as that Georgia post-punk institution was winding down operations.

 · Right as Rain were good as gold on their debut ep. Cut in Florida, and also released on the small Sunshine State imprint Safety Records, the band actually hailed from Atlanta. Tellingly inspired by REM, RaR's recipe consisted of modest jangle, plenty of strum, and some rootsy undercurrents to boot, due in part to occasional banjo and mandolin fills.

Stop! Look & Listen finds a sound somewhere between pop and country, augmenting its strummy songs and melodies with low, honky tonk guitar bends and twangy constructions. While this sound occasionally finds some decent pop territory, it typically loses the appeal of either genre and winds up sounding like watered-down radio fare.
