    Revivalist? Sure, but this refreshing, smarter side of the late '80s has yet to be co-opted into a hipster fashion show.

    Harte's voice is sometimes a little thin to carry some songs. [Oct 2007, p.104]

    "Yes! No!" Does this album bring something new to the table of modern music? Yes. Is it always appetizing? No. Do I like it? Yes, no, yes. "Yes! No!" Does this album bring something new to the table of modern music? Yes. Is it always appetizing? No. Do I like it? Yes, no, yes. Admittedly I am spoiled on the Beatles' crafty use of short musical segments and interludes ala the latter half of Abbey Road. These songs grab interest and then leave us wanting more, much more than we were given. The jury is still out on Shocking Pinks, and this album does not have the depth to permiit the reaching of a verdict regarding relevancy and longevity. Full Review »

    Finally, a quality NZ artist is receiving decent attention! Next stop, Shihad.
