KIDNAPPERS, THE: Will Protect You: CD

Jan 11, 2011

It’s a wonder why these guys aren’t bigger than Christ at the moment. Super catchy power pop that’s as powerful as it is sugary and, well, poppy. A quick reference to throw out is The Boys, and more currently, The Impulse International. Definitely rooted in the ‘70s, with songs about girls, girls, and one about a prostitute (“Sally”). Strong riffs, infectious melodies, and it’s all fun, fun, fun. A good mix of cookers, like “Milkshake,” “She Won’t Come Home,” and my favorite of the album, “Nothing’s Gonna Change,” then there’s the slightly reserved type songs, “Heartbeat,” “Tomorrow you Feel Better,” and the like. Great album, without a doubt.
