BEATLESQUE THREE REVIEW (Absolute PowerPop)

Alan Bernhoft-Beatlesque Three. Bernhoft is back with the latest installment in his “Beatlesque” series. The first two primarily mined the early Beatles sound, so he’s moved on to the Sgt Pepper/Magical Mystery Tour/White Album era on this batch. The results are engaging, with the McCartney side of things represented with “Sunny Sky”, which doesn’t have a direct Beatles counterpart, and “Honey Love”, which does recall “Honey Pie” with its old-timey opening. Lennon is given voice with “Bored”, which draws on “I Am the Walrus” for inspiration, and “Say in Silence”, which has a “Dear Prudence” vibe. And is “Chun Li” Bernhoft’s answer to Yoko Ono? Finally, no nakedly Beatlesque effort like this is complete without a song titled “Colliding Circles”, the name of a supposed long-lost Beatles track. It’s all fun, in a Rutles-esque kind of way.
