  1. They have mouths on them, yes they do. But their mouths are connected to their hearts and minds, and amped by loud guitars.

    They deliver thrilling song after thrilling song that'll have you hyping them to all your rock & roll friends as soon the album stops spinning.

    Sonically, Screws spit-shines things just enough to give the songs an almost radio-friendly glimmer without losing their ramshackle mojo, sense of urgency or danger--cleaner, but not too clean for rock 'n' roll.

    Screws aspires to the high-end pop of Lowe's Pure Pop for Now People or the Flamin Groovies' mid-'70s work, and gets there more often than not.

    Screws Get Loose, is wonderfully tight and Those Darlins' latest succeeds with catchy, country tinged rock-and-roll with a healthy dose of humor.
  6. 70
    While it's a bit worrying that flavor of the week genre trappings (surf rock and 60s girl group) show up on a sophomore disc, Those Darlins use them wisely, and retain much of their unique persona.
  7. Mar 29, 2011
    Sadly, Screws Get Loose is a serious step backward, ditching the anarchic honky-tonk of old in favor of ho-hum, girly surf pop in the vein of the Dum Dum Girls and Vivian Girls.
