Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too , 5/10

The New Radicals are the New York-based project of a Gregg Alexander a Michigan native, an eclectic singer who certainly displays fervor, anger and a deep knowledge of popular music, and a multi-instrumentalist/arranger capable of crafting creative soundscapes. The New Radicals moniker debuted with the album Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too (MCA, 1998), that presents Alexander in a series of transformations. He begins by sounding like an energized version of Mick Jagger in Mother We Just Can't Get Enough, while a frantic rhythm and blues groove propels You Get What You Give, that sounds exactly like and old Todd Rundgren's pop-soul ditties. Add huge doses of Daryl Hall and John Oates, but backed with loud beats and sharp guitars, and you get most of the rest (and notably Someday We'll Know).
Alexander can be far more adventurous, though, as he proves in I Hope I Didn't Just Give Away The Ending, relying on jazz piano, quasi-rap singing, busy drums and a gospel melody, and in Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too, a voodoo-psychedelic number with echo-processed vocals, tribal beats and twangy guitar.
