Damone's sophomore release, Out Here All Night, would sonicallyserve rather well as the soundtrack to those late summer nights spentdriving aimlessly around with friends searching for that random party-- you know, the rowdy one at some haphazard place that only picks upwell after dusk when every last person you know or have at least seenaround town has shown up. The straightforward revelry steering "OuttaMy Way" even has random party banter popping up in between all the glamrock attitude posturing to further drive the point home. Lyrically,however, the album leans more to the darker side of the aforementionedparty -- the self-doubt, lost love, and just trying to figure thosecarefree nights out in the grand scheme of things. For a musicalcomparison, insert any uplifting arena rock band into the blank withringing guitar leads and powerful riffs, but put a tough female singerboasting a sweet, soaring voice up front to control the pop-punkmasses. The album plays as the next logical step forward from theband's 2003 debut -- surging choruses and tight playing bolstered evenmore with sporadic string-infused arrangements and production work soclean you could practically eat off it. As stated earlier, though,things aren't all the bright fun of songs like "Tonight" and "Now Isthe Time" (the latter whose chorus is practically crying to be thetheme for a WB drama). "Stabbed in the Heart" uses plaintive stringsand potent guitars for an emotional buildup that -- not to soundredundant -- would fit well in a key love scene retrospective during a Hilary Duff movie, while "On Your Speakers" is the song that would no doubt result had lead singer Noelle actually been Bon Jovi'sdaughter. Throughout all the nocturnal merriment, Damone are seldomfound short on enough attitude or six-string power to carry listenersinto the early morning hours with ease -- no matter how the nightactually winds up turning out.
