Calling the World is the second studio album by Rooney. With three years of recording, about 50 songs in total and John Fields producing (!), the album was finally released in 2007.
Robert Schwartzman (lead vocals, guitar), Taylor Locke (lead guitar, backing vocals), Ned Brower (drums, backing vocals), Matthew Winter (bass guitar) and Louie Stephens (keyboards, piano) present nothing less than their best record to date (in my humble opinion).
You can easily discover many influences, like Queen or E.L.O. - and Powerpop all over the record.
To sum it up: It's so good, it's in heavy rotation since weeks at my turntable. You might experience the same...
P.S.: Though there was a new Rooney record out in 2016 ("Washed Away"), it's sadly not the same level as "Calling The World". With "Washed Away" the only remaining member of the band is Robert Schwartzman.
