I do love Luke Haines. Sometimes it feels like being stuck in an abusive relationship, but the love is still there. I promise.
I guess teaming up with Peter Buck means something, but the songwriting here is definitely Hainesian. Which means there are some real gems, and a few that seemed like a good idea at 3 AM, but to be honest are more like a fun concept than a pop song.
Pop song. There you have it. I love Luke Haines when he writes and sings pop songs. You may start with the title track. That and a few other represent Luke's most vibrant output in years.
