 Notes & Reviews
 
2010 sophomore album from former Test Icicles guitarist Dev Hynes AKA Lightspeed Champion. Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You, the follow-up to 2008's Falling Off the Lavender Bridge, is an epic collection of 12 Pop songs, two instrumental intermissions and one piano Etude. Life is Sweet! Nice to Meet You reflects Dev's voracious but discriminating Pop taste. He draws on baroque '60s Pop, Girl Group harmonies, classical music, jolting '70s guitar and synth sounds, classical piano, Serge Gainsbourg, Greek choruses, Todd Rundgren, and even musical theater.
