BRIEFS, THE: Steal Yer Heart: CD

I love The Briefs. I’ve been waiting a long time for this to come out (well, since the last one, anyways). What can I say? Well, for starters it doesn’t grab you from the first note like Sex Objects did. I mean, everything sounds great but something is off. It took a few listens to figure out what was up. It’s mature. What the fuck is the deal with that?! Sure, they’ve still got the goofy lyrical content (“Genital General,” for instance), but the overall feel of the record is one of having been around the block a time or two. A great record, to be sure, but just not childish enough to be a Briefs record.
