Teen Idols - Pucker Up!
After listening to this quite a few times, the word "disappointment" comes
to mind. The Teen Idols 2nd full length cannot even hold a candle to their
self-titled CD (read my review for that in the archives). This just sounds
way to over-produced. Sure, the guy's voice is still cool. Sure, the
female bass player is still a babe. But there's just some pizazz missing
from it. This self-proclaimed "pogo-punk" band doesn't show any sign of
energy on this release, as opposed to their older material. If you're a
fan like me, you'll buy it, but if you really wanna hear some kick-ass punk
in that snotty style popularized by The Queers and The Ramones, check out
the Teen Idols self titled CD.
