Let's concider the three minute pop-song for a second or two: so simple in it's construction, so inscrutable in it's perfection, so many who have tried and failed...For me The Yum Yums have been THE band to watch over the past couple of years, their perfect (yep, it's true) take on the "power-pop" thang a source of constant pleasure and amezement. Following on from their 45's on the Screaming Apple and Sneakers labels, comes this platter, so chock full of goodies that is difficult to take in one sitting. Vocalist/Guitarist/Songwriter Morten Henriksen has the rare ability to take the most banal and over-used pop ingredients - the word "baby", powerchords and sunny harmonies - and fashion them into something fresh. The guy's a pop-alchemist of the first degree!In my humble opinion, there's only ever been a handful of perfect debut pop/punk albums over the past twenty years - the first Plimsouls, Real Kids, Damned, Ramones and Barracudas outings immediatly springs to mind. This is another to add to that short list. Twelve tracks of pure perfection including fantastic covers of The Pointed Sticks "Out Of Luck" and unbelievably Jane Wiedlin's "Rush Hour" .... Kids... "this is rock'n'roll" at his best level !!! by J.Hutton -Bucketfull of brains.
