The Arizona foursome A Change of Pace
mixes snarling Britpop and fizzy power pop on its second album, Prepare the Masses
. The band is fond of buzzing, ringing guitar riffs and big, rolling drum fills. But the group doesn't sacrifice catchy songs for all the sonic decorations. The sweeping choruses work overtime to please, and many of Prepare the Masses
' cuts sounds ready for radio.
