SPARKLE MOTION: Self-Titled: CD

Dear Sparkle Motion,

I think I love you. I love you because you have made an album of eleven excellent pop punk tracks, most of which clock in under three minutes. I love you because you manage to remind of some of my favorites of yore, namely Bikini Kill and Babes in Toyland, and yet you don’t sound derivative or boring. And wow, I love the sweet, sneery harmonies on songs like “Resortaphobia” and “Meltdown.” But most of all I love you because I listened to this CD over and over again while I painted four coats of a color called “Lemon Tart” on my kitchen walls and it kept me from going crazy from fumes and monotony.  –jennifer (Super Secret)
