    Best Coast delivers a very enjoyable Californian Lo-Fi sound which adds a slight retro feeling to the album as a whole. The lyrics are fairly innocent and simple, but very infectious. There is not a track not worth listening to in 'Crazy For You.'
    Favorite Tracks: Boyfriend, Honey, When I'm with You

    Great album from start to finish. This doesnt push the envelope, break any new ground or bring anything new to the music world.. but who cares! The vast majority of tracks on this make you want to go and have some fun. Itâ

    The lo-fi sound is charming, the vocals are sugar sweet and the music infectious. From 'Boyfriend' to 'When I'm With You' (noticing a theme?) it won't challenge you, but it will please you.

  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.

    Consentino's certainly got an ear for a hook, and her trio makes good use of them, but you can only sing about your cat, weed, and loneliness for so many songs.
  3. Though Best Coast's music is fairly sunny-like beach music for kids who reek of patchouli-Crazy For You contains a core of sadness mixed with sickness that's difficult to embrace.
