It's a given that the members of 34 Satellite have a few Elvis Costello records in their collection. On top of the straightforward power pop that remains at a mid-tempo pace, the majority of Radar contains a chunk of guitar-driven rock -- meat and potato guitar solos and all -- with a nice touch of cellos found on the fittingly titled "Pretty Song." Fans of John Cougar might want to take notice as well. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi
