HIVES, THE: Hate To Say I Told You So: CDEP

This is simply a three-song CD. The first two are from The Hives latest full length, Veni Vidi Vicious. If you have not had the pleasure of listening to them, they are a retro rock’n’roll band. They remind me somewhat of The Stooges. The third song is a previously unreleased track. It is a forgettable instrumental with a synthesizer thrown in giving it a little ’80s new wave feel. I wouldn’t waste your time with this three-song CD and go pick up one of The Hives’ full lengths. I’ve heard three other CDs from them and they are all worth getting.
