  1. The catch is that through all her generalizations it soon becomes clear that she needs that guy much more than a postmodern girl is supposed to. Too bad she can't pin it down and also can't pin him down. I blame the weed.
  2. This record is carefree and instantly likable--even if it doesn't seem to care what you think of it.
  3. There's a musical and rhythmic uniformity among these 13 tracks that might lose ears beyond the album's brisk 29 minutes, but it reflects a consistent summer ambivalence to which most anyone can relate.

    Too often, bands are promenaded across the web, heralded in a way that makes everyone a name-dropping music connosieur, only to fade too fast....hopefully the same won't happen to the latest interwebs It Chick, Bethany Cosentino b.k.a. Best Coast.
  5. Behold, here arrives the first "star" from a productive lo-fi music scene. That's because she's the first out of the bunch of heavily-blogged artists to display her personality, to prove to the world that she's got something to say. And boy has she said it.
  6. The songs are so good they can disarm any skeptics.
  7. The good news is, this album is going to garner a dozen swoons in her direction for each romantic woe she professes on it.

From 'Boyfriend' to 'When I'm With You' (noticing a theme?) it won't challenge you, but it will please you. Full Review »

The lyrics are fairly innocent and simple, but very infectious. There is not a track not worth listening to in 'Crazy For You.'
