This review is from: Make Up The Breakdown (Audio CD)
I am not only referring to "Bandages". This CD has really energized me throughout last month. The first time I heard HHH was on a Punk compilation and their song "Get In Or Get Out" truly stood out from the rest, probably because they are not a punk band. So I was quite confident I would have at least one good song to listen to when I picked up the CD. Wasn't I rewarded beyond my wildest expectations!
Every song is a refined piece of songwriting, the arrangements are plain and effective and although the material is quite varied there is a clear and unique band identity that emanates from the CD. The result is fresh, innovative, energetic and fun.
The reason why this band caught my attention is that I still have a sweet spot for XTC, Elvis Costello and other bands from those years (if you don't like HHH, you can safely blame Andy Partidge for his influence). But even if you are not an old fart like me, you will surely find something in it for you. My 8 year old daughter has stolen my CD!
HHH is a great band and "oh no! It's not a secret now"!
