A Fragile Tomorrow continue to weave the signature sound that’s marked their motif since their founding in 2003, one that’s at once complex and yet also easy on the ears, sensual and yet sophisticated all at the same time. While some tend to identify them as a power pop outfit, in truth they’re far more afield, and on the aptly titled Make Me Over they venture into sonic realms that often sound unexpected. It’s not that they’ve become elusive by any means, but given the hybrid of influences — David Bowie, Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys and Brit rock all have a hand in this sprawling melange — its clear they’re aiming to create a more incisive sound. Thankfully, the melodic elements remain intact, and given the presence of such A-list names as Joan Baez, the Indigo Girls, John Cowsill, Vicki Peterson and Mark Hart of Crowded House, even the more extraneous elements don’t detract from the overall allure.
