VIBRATORS: V2: CD

Although album number two for these guys was an attempt at a more “studio” feel, the proceedings are strangely more “punk” in sound than some of the stuff on Pure Mania. The pub rock undercurrent is still evident, but it is a tad more muted, with the boys opting to nudge thing just a tad closer to the edge. Nonetheless, the hits just keep on a-comin’ over the course of this second effort—”Automatic Lover,” “Pure Mania,” “Nazi Baby,” “Troops of Tomorrow,” and they’ve even thrown in the “Judy Says” single as a bonus.
