Reviewed by Tony Cummings

Any attentive Cross Rhythms radio listener will already know the piece de resistance of this tremendous album, the attention-grabbing opener “Nobody” which blends its elements, an acoustic guitar strum, a wistful lead vocal and howling, hard guitars, to produce a perfect, radio-friendly concoction. But there are plenty of other gems here. Take the mid tempo plea for God’s transforming touch, “Change My Name”. Lead singer Ryan Smith’s vocal – a little like the Jars’ Dan Haseltine – emits a tremulous poignancy as the angry guitars roar around him, or the jangling teenage romance song “Call Me”. Overall, ‘The Observatory’ (which has been out almost a year incidentally) is a big improvement on Cadet’s self-titled debut and though there are still strong retro beat group elements, hardening up the guitar sound makes a far more cohesive album for today’s youth. Classy pop rock with exceedingly tuneful hooks.
