Trust me on this, pop nation. Get this record, and your life will improve. It will bring you joy. It`ll make you wanna dance. You can even fuck to it if you`re really quick on the draw. Granted, I`ve been wrong before a couple times. I`ve been wrong before a couple hundred times. But I`ve been training hard, perfecting my technique, testing my theories against the greatest minds the bar down the street has to offer. This time I`m right. One good record could have been a fluke. But a great second record is clearly no accident. Baby [=st]Shakes have earned the rank of top tier powerpop group. This record`s more rocking than the first – even more Chuck Berry-influenced and far less “cutesy” in approach. Nikki and the Corvettes are still the most obvious point of reference. But here they also remind me of Tina and the Total Babes, or that great band from five years ago, The Pinkz (who were internationally loved, rightfully, but broke up after just two singles). This is what a 7" single should be: a veritable “double A-side” spectacular spinning at 45 RPM. There are no attempts at originality or serious expression. Just great, revved-up rock n` roll chock full of hooks n` harmonies, produced by The Man, Dave Rahn (who also drums on Side A). Do I have to say another word? Come on!
