Album Review

Jr. Gone Wild's debut, Less Art More Pop, was a scattershot affair, flirting with Byrdsy country but without the chops to make it truly convincing. The follow-up took four years, and a lot happened during that time: two of the original members were let go, the band signed with hometown label Stony Plain, the band reunited with one of the sacked members, and the new unit practiced a lot. By the time Too Dumb to Quit came together, Jr. Gone Wild was an efficient unit whose talents matched leader Mike McDonald's musical ambitions. The album still shows a country influence, but with a punk energy that placed them closer to Beat Farmers than to the Byrds for most of the album (the notable exceptions being "Poet's Highway" and the folky "Sleep With a Stranger").
