There is no flaw when it comes to musical genius. When you hear it, you know...this is going to be epic. Jackson Square by Arkells is just that. The thought of something so smart, so politically correct and so relatable, would come in the format of a 12 track CD-Rom, sounds absurd. But the 5 young men from the Greater Toronto Area somehow managed to do the unthinkable. This CD will no doubt launch the career of what will be, the new band that Canada can actually be proud of. Arkells stray from the mundane and released an album that has a song for everyone. Oh, The Boss is Coming is currently taking over the airwaves; it is only a matter of time until "I'm Not The Sun" and "John Lennon" to follow suit. Do yourself a favour and purchase this CD, that way when they are heading all the massive tours and weeping in the rewards, you can say you were there from the beginning.
