3.0 out of 5 stars Great in some ways., 30 Aug 2007
This review is from: Frosting On The Beater (Audio CD)
Got to admit this album does have some amazing tracks on it - Solar Sister and Flavour of the Month - are up there as some of the best alt/rock tunes from the 90'sa hitting the nail on the head with the blend of powerful grungy guitars, gracious melodies and harmonies.

Comparsions to bands like red kross and teenage fanclub are fair, and their is a clear influence of Big Star and British invasion too.

the album lets itself down on the fact that the rest of the songs pale into comparison with the 2 or 3 amazing ones.

I found a couple of the middle tracks a bit uninteresting - they were very 'slushy' and relied too much on a drigey sound, and felt quite slow.

Overall I found the album great for the 1st half but kinda drifts off towards the latter half with there not being any particularly good hooks and too much grunge.

But it's definatley a worthwhile purchase for any nirvana fans wanting to hear what other bands were doing at that time - alternatively for those fans of melodic power pop - get this for melody with a bit more bite.
