Great title for an album, kinda hokey name for a band, especially considering that it doesn’t sound like these guys are on any cool kinds of mind-altering/expanding drugs. The tunes are mediocre power pop that fall short of memorable. It reminds me of something that I can’t quite put my finger on…mid-’90s “alternative” FM radio…that fuckin’ “Flagpole” band, Harvey Danger. There you go. Colonel Records put out the great King Tuff record recently, so grab that release rather than this one. Stick to the Pets or Gentleman Jesse if you’re looking for a power pop fix.
