The Like have gone from sulky indie waifs to kohl-eyed pop vamps within the space of two albums and suspicious minds may detect the hand of shiny-suited svengali Mark Ronson, who produced three quarters of the LP. But before cynics complain that he's just 'done a Winehouse' on them, The Like are no puppets: singer/guitarist Elizabeth Berg wrote all the songs (apart from the Motown cover 'Why When Love Has Gone') and there's ample proof on Youtube that they can cut it live. 'Release Me' too is more than mere pastiche; it's a loving homage to all the great 60s girl groups but also nods to others such as Blondie, The Go-Go's and Kirsty MacColl who have drawn on the same inspirations, and blows current competitors like The School and Lucky Soul out of the water. Berg's songs are wordier than their 60s prototypes (anyone in the Brill Building would have been fired for using the word 'extraneous' !) but the music is pure pop perfection, catchy, short & sweet and with a garage rock edge on a couple of numbers. Sure, it doesn't hurt that The Like are pretty girls in Op-Art minidresses but 'Release Me' is strong enough to be a mainstream hit on its own merits, without playing up the image or the Ronson connection.

Virtually every review of this album you will read in the "serious" press will first of all mention the fact that Mark Ronson is at the production helm and that The Like's founder members (Elizabeth "Z" Berg and Tennessee Thomas) are the daughters of prominent figures in the music industry.

Of course to some people this might actually mean something; the kind of people who demonise X-Factor for ruining pop music (when actually it's ruining a small portion of pop music and there's not much you can do about the general public buying what records they want to anyway) and who seem to forget that pop music has always been about image since Elvis swung his hips in the 1950's might think that what goes on in the background is somewhat more important than the actual music that is delivered.

And what it actually boils down to is that this is a fantastic record that wears it's considerable influences firmly on it's sleeves. And it's none the worse for that. After an excellent debut album (Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking) I would have been quite happy to sit through more of the same (and I might even have been a bit apprehensive about the "change" in sound) but any fears that the quality control has gone south are almost instantly dispelled. The bubblegum 60's pop style fits them like a glove.

Album opener (and second single) Wishing He Was Dead kicks the album off on a high note and what follows offers up considerably more hits than misses. Sweet and catchy melodies mix with acerbic lyrics to great effect and the whole thing is a gem from start to finish, with particular highlights including the lilting Narcissus In A Red Dress, the pulsating Fair Game and the insanely addictive Catch Me If You Can.

If you can't enjoy this album because you're too hung up on who produced it and on the famous fathers in the background then it's your loss. I just hope we don't have to wait another five years for a follow up this time around.

This album is, of course, inspired by the best girl pop rock sounds of the 1960s (Phil Spector etc.) but also by The Go-Go's and The Bangles. BUT, it is REALLY very good at emulating the spirit and best sounds of its influences. So much so that a genuine personality shines all through the set. No filler, even if a pure, straight hit to cap off the album would have meant 5 stars. Recommended.

Fantastic move for the Like to sound more 60s/Mod

I hear that this is different from the first album from 'The Like' , I hope it's not that different as I intend to get it soon and would very much like more of what's on this album.

Although the last 6 tracks on the album aren't as strong as the first there really is no duffer or filler on this album at all - and that's from 2 listens - I absolutely love this record. The songs tend to be short and snappy catchy tunes - around the 3 minute mark. There's a nice retro feel to the album, I'd say 80s more than the 60s (although the organ sound is a bit 60s). The lead singer of the group has a wonderful strong voice too.

I'd describe 'The Like' as a kind of (early) Bangles / Go-Go's / Voice of the Beehive type of affair - and that is no bad thing. I've seen someone on US Amazon site liken them to the Pipettes, I'd strongly disagree with this as the Pipettes sound very amateurish to me, and a good 60% of their album is indeed filler, where this is a very polished professional sounding album.

I really hope there is more to come from this band - they really deserve success although I suspect this might not be the most fashionable genre right now.
