VETERANS, THE: Self-titled: CD

There are a lot of albums my four-year-old daughter and I share as favorites. There are also tons of albums where one of us can’t believe the other actually listens to such things. I know for a fact she doesn’t dig Rudimentary Peni, and I can tell you that I can’t stand her forty-track Dora the Explorer CD. One band we can usually agree on, however, is The Queers. We can’t get enough of those sing-along hooks. Now, if the two of us were to sit down one day and work to create a mix CD of all of our favorite Queers songs, the resulting sounds, harmonies, emotions, and jubilee would be of equal value to the self-titled album from Italy’s The Veterans. Good stuff, yo.
