This is a nice slab of ‘60s-inspired wig out rock. “1984” is a more straight forward power chord riffer while “Cryin’ Shame” ventures into Cynics-style jangling with keyboards. Two slower numbers put the brakes on: not the band’s strong suit. But the speed of the album is generally up-tempo. When the album moves, it moves in the right direction.
