SWEETHEARTS, THE: Looks Could Kill: CD

Jun 29, 2007

It sounds like The Sweethearts are trying to for a little more rock’n’roll with this album. Gone are the happy, poppy guitar bits, and the singer, Lynnette, seems to have traded in her bubble gum for liquor and cigarettes. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I kinda liked them better poppier. Looks Could Kill is still a pretty solid album. The Sweethearts are still catchy and fun. I’m sure this album will grow on me. It’s definitely a keeper. Still, I like it when they rock their Go-Go’s and Screeching Weasel influences more than their Runaways influences.
