10 Favorite Power Pop Albums

Early Wynn

Recommended Posts

Power pop is a musical genre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American pop music.

The music is characterized by strong melodies, crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs. Instrumental solos are kept to a minimum, and blues elements are largely downplayed.

to wit: Foreigner may sound melodic enough & their songs are not as extended as many, but they never sound like they have any luv or devotion for the 1960s.

The Offsrping, on the other hand do not fall into the "power pop" category mainly because of attitude & vocal style which is something more "pop-punk"... they have hooks and rock & keep it economical, but they rely on the novelty aspect of things which is definitely NOT a power pop trait...
