MANATEEES: Croc n My Pocket: LP

Shouty garage rock that breaks into other genres on random tracks. It reminds me of a dirtier, faster Eddy Current Suppression Ring or a sloppier version of Flesh Lights. As itself, I find certain songs fun for a few moments, but they almost lose me a little before the end. I think more than anything, I wish this record had a bit of an editor. Someone willing to say an idea has gone on for a bit too long. Not a bad record, just a bit long in the tooth. –Bryan Static (12XU, 12xu.net)
