The Welcome Mat's 1993 debut Gram packs some power-pop worthy hooks and expert guitar riffage, but we found disagreeement in the results

Author & Special Guests

Our latest requested review brings us The Welcome Mat’s debut release Gram from 1993. This four-piece from Sydney, Australia packs some power-pop worthy hooks thanks to crisp vocal harmonies, well-crafted tunes and expert guitar riffage. It’s only when either of the vocalists steps out on their own that the songs start to suffer, but how much? It’s (mild) disagreement time!
