    Although most of Careers chugs along with a sandy roadside candor, some tracks, like the churning, heavy Planet Birthday or the clinically pulsing Hong Kong Hotel, play with disparate textures.

    Frankie Rose might not be the face of Beverly, but Careers is one of the best things she's done to date. But Drew Citron deserves most of the credit.

    Riding in on a humid wave of 1990s guitar rock and ’60s girl-group harmonies, the debut from the new project of Frankie Rose and Drew Citron is pure ear candy.

    Again and again, it’s the harmonies that make Careers a compelling listen and, through their atypical approach to a fairly staid genre, elevate these songs from good to great and, in the process, create one of the better albums to come out this year and one of the best examples the genre has offered thus far.

    The strength of the songs and the powerful energy with which the duo deliver them help them escape any charges of ripping off the past.
  6. 67
    These songs keep the gruffness that marked Rose’s early bands but opt for clearer dynamics.

    Still--stumbles aside--you could hardly ask for a better summertime LP.
