The songs on this album employ a variety of retro-style riffs. The bubblegum influence works at every speed. “Lone Wolf” moves at the pace of The Queers. “Keep Me Around” and “Wandering Eyes” have more swing to the pace and a hint of ‘50s song structure. Primitive Hearts keep the musicianship high. Guitar, bass, and drums are all solid. The vocals have high-pitched sincerity with a hint of attitude and are backed up with lots of good oooing and aaaing. It’s a good record for those who like the rock’n’roll with the punk and whatnot.
