album: Release Me

The Like. Release Me. Downtown DWT70159, 2010. (on CD)

The ultimate guilty pleasure album. The thing’s a sort of love letter to bubblegum pop, with a punkish drive. Based on the awesome video for “He’s Not a Boy,” I was expecting something like a female version of The Monkees. Instead, it’s more like Blondie with an organ. I was a little disappointed at first that it wasn’t exactly what I wanted, but I got over it.

8/10 (Great).
