This is a follow-up to my initial I-Rails 7" post from a couple months ago. That record featured two superlative tracks, "Same Old Me" and "Everyone's in Love" that any band of their ilk would give a collective right arm for. Well, today I'm offering six times that serving in the form of the I-Rails Panharmonium cassette album, the last in a series of four (Valentino Says, Unfocused and Nine Songs from Nowhere preceded it). I made a point of mentioning that leadman Chris O'Conners would go onto commercial success in the mid-90s with the highly dissimilar Primitive Radio Gods, and moreover that the I-Rails were another barrel of fish entirely. And what would that barrel entail you might ask? If the likes of Dramarama, Gin Blossoms, Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Superstar Carwash-era Goo Goo Dolls are at all enticing to you, chances are you've stumbled onto a gleaming nugget of gold here. The aforementioned single, particularly the b-side "Everyone's in Love" packed more grit than many of these songs combined, but the side of the coin, "Same Old Me" but "Disconnected" and "Behold" are pretty damn propulsive in their own right. Why the I-Rails didn't skyrocket in the same manner PRG did is beyond, because everything was perfectly in place on Panharmonium. If anyone has any leads on the other three I-Rails tapes, there are some more than willing ears in these parts.
