One Of The Albums Of 2010 - I Love This Record!!,
This review is from: Crazy For You (Audio CD)
Quite simply, I love this album. As you'd probably guess from their name and the cover, it's summery, upbeat, and uplifting. It's truly the perfect soundtrack for any summer.
They're never going to win awards for lyrics ("I love you", "I hate you", "I miss you" pretty much covers all the themes), and the songs are simple 2 minute-long, 3-chord, minimally produced pop songs. But it is charming to the core, and you find yourself singing along after just one listen.
It's poppy, it's punky, it's garage rocky, it's sugary sweet, and it's got a a hefty dose of Phil Spector-esque girl-band influence.
I notice it's now only £4.99. That's not even money! With the summer approaching, buy this now. I doubt this year will produce a better sunny day record.
