The Golden Age of American Music Club

David Burke, R2/Rock'n'Reel, March 2008

MARK EITZEL sounds very chipper – not at all the lugubrious character that comes across in his songs. With the release of American Music Club's ninth album, the flawless The Golden Age, he's grateful for the good fortune of still being able to make music in his forties. "In dog years you add seven, right? In lead vocalist years I'm, like … five thousand years old!"
