PAUL COLLINS: King of Power Pop!: CD

Nov 16, 2010

New solo record from the ex-Nerves member. Capitalizing on the strength of his last record, Collins kicks it into high gear here. “Do You Wanna Love Me?” with Wally from The Romantics on harmonica burns hard. But “Losing Your Cool and “Off the Hook” also rival any of The Beat’s early releases. “The Letter” is a cool nod to Alex Chilton and the title track is a nice homage to power pop and its members. Rock on with your Rickenbacker, Paul!
