    New wave influences are also apparent, specifically when the vocals channel Lene Lovich or Ric Ocasek. These vocal quirks don't always work, and a couple of songs don't hold up to the album's best, but this is a fun introduction nevertheless.

ALoved SK, also really liked Helium and some of Marys solo efforts. Loud, rocking, drums sound amazing. Everybody shines in their own way. A mix of punk and classic rock stylings w/a blend of Carrie and Marys vocals. Music is uniquely WILD FLAG, yet the familarity of Carrie and Marys singing may harken past projects by default.
