Pop to the power of 10

If you're a fan of sunshiney power pop like I am, you need this album in your collection. The Wellingtons have captured in lush brilliant tones the bouncy vibe of their live shows (catch 'em if you can) and the result is an albumful of happiness. Even the sad songs sound happy! If you can listen to this and remain miserable, you need to up your meds. I Get My Heart Broken Every Day makes the experience sound like a pleasure, and stand-out track Freak Out demands that you get up outta your seat and dance around the room. Do yourself an enormous favour and get this album for the Christmas season, for winter nights, for going-away parties, for Christenings, for Nana's committal, for listening to on your headphones while you catch the bus to work... don't matter. Just buy it, listen to it lots, and get happy.

The latter series' success on the network and in syndication means that the Wellingtons have been heard on television...
