With their upbeat poptimism and vague world music affectations, The Ruby Suns make me think of Haircut 100 2.0. AND THAT'S OK. There's a combination there that works, but for whatever reason it's not a sound that has ever been a dominant pop sound. Unfortunately, The Ruby Suns just can't seem to get all these pieces together at the same time. There's a lot going on, and it doesn't always work together.
