RIVER CITY HIGH: Not Enough Saturday Nights: CD

Feb 08, 2007

Pounding the same drumbarrel as dudes like the Black Furies and the Supersuckers–arena-flavored rock’n’roll with plenty of songs about women and what badasses the band members are, interspersed with the occasional “sensitive” ballad about looove, baby. I obviously don’t know these guys, so who am I to judge their intent or honesty, right? But solely as a listener, this record comes across as uber-glossy, they mention their caterer in the liner notes, and the whole endeavor oozes as much sincerity as a four-dollar bill. There’s nothing particularly offensive about it, but there’s nothing there that really reaches out and grabs the lovehandles either.
