2.0 out of 5 stars Not all that 'Groovie'., 9 Mar 2001
This review is from: Re-Animation Festival (Audio CD)
The Groovie Ghoulies have a cool sound and a cool concept. But unfortunately, in this album...the songs just don't cut it. It is a great album if you just want to stick a CD on and ingnore it but its difficult to get into because there is very little substance. The Art work is great and there are a couple of songs which almost stand out but on the whole its not exactly a classic. It is a shame because they do hint at having real potential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Screaming!, 9 Mar 2001
This review is from: BLONDER & BLONDER (Audio CD)
The Muffs should really be in Lookout records with a sound like this. This is a really cool pop-punk album and Kim Shattuck's melodic screaming keeps your interest right the way through. Her voice infinately comliments the songs, she sings like a little kid without too much high-pitched screeching like some girl, punk singers. The songs are consistently poppy and full of energy. Most of the album is in the same vein as the version of 'Kids in America' they did for the 'Clueless' soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars A treat of an album, 8 Mar 2001
This review is from: Seventhirtyeight (Audio CD)
Bronco Bullfrog have a cool retro sound, the influences of bands like the Beatles and the Beach boys are very evident, as well as more modern acts like The Apples in Stereo. A good mix of varried songs with nice harmonies and very long and unpredictable middle sections. This album will keep you on your toes because it is always changing, so it does not bore. I hope we hear more from them in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!, 6 Mar 2001
This is a wonderfully varried album. Strong melodies, a range of cool instruments, energy and musical inovation. Everything about this album just feels right! There are no fillers and even the instrumental pieces inbetween some tracks are very complementary to the album as a whole. If you like 'The Fountains of Wayne' or 'Apples in Stereo', you'll love this!!

3.0 out of 5 stars The raw sound of MTX, 6 Mar 2001
This review is from: Our Bodies Ourselves (Audio CD)
Although this is not a brilliantly produced album, and not every song is catchy and happy (which is what you expect from MTX) it still has alot of MTX charm and wit. Songs like 'Even Hitler had a girlfriend' and 'Will you still love me when I don't love you' are guarenteed to raise a smile. The cover of 'I feel love' and more poppy songs like 'Somebody who cares' and 'More than toast' are good reasons to but this album, but otherwise it doesn't really hang together like more recent efforts.

3.0 out of 5 stars The new sound of MTX, 5 Mar 2001
This review is from: Alcatraz (Audio CD)
This album is quite difference from previous efforts by the band. It has a softer edge and a much more retro sound. The band seem to have leaned more to a 50's and 60's rock'n roll sound rather than punk rock. The MTX sound is still unmistakable. Dr Franc's lyrics are still as funny and clever as ever. This album marks a new direction for the band and it is well worth listening to if you like bands like the Groovie Goolies and the Hi Fives.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic 'Look-out' record - vintage 'MTX' at its best!, 4 Mar 2001
This review is from: Milk Milk Lemonade (Audio CD)
Milk Milk Lemonade was the last album MTX did with their original four piece set up. It contains all the happy melodies and sad sentiments you would expect from MTX and Dr Frank's hilarious lyrics are witty and clever as ever. The stand out tracks -'Book of revelation' and 'I love you but you're standing on my foot' are pop-punk masterpieces. Not the best MTX record ever, but worth buying all the same!
