SWEETHEARTS, THE: L.U.V.: CD

I’d think it would be tough to combine solid Texas rock’n’roll with Nikki Corvette-style bubblegum vocals, but The Sweethearts blend them together seamlessly. The songs rock and make me want to sing along, and that’s a good combination. L.U.V. comes across like the best of The Chubbies, or an Eyeliners live set when the Eyeliners are really on. It’s good shit.
