These Seattle garage punks stick with producer Johnny Sangster for their fifth album, which finds the band whittled down to its core of lead vocalist/guitarist Evan Foster and keyboard whiz Nick C. Musically though, they continue to grow as they move into early Costello/Cheap Trick pop/punk. The songwriting has taken a major step forward, along with the sound, but both are still firmly rooted in the scrappy '60s style that is obviously close to the duo's hearts. Foster could stand to lose some of his overt Costello-isms on songs like "Run and Hide," which sounds like an outtake from This Year's Model. But there's no denying the propulsive thrust of "Looking for You," with its Townsend-like guitar runs and cheesy synth bubbling under the surface, or the opening, driving, double slap-in-the-face of "I Want to Be Your Addiction" followed by "Kill My Telephone." There is some late Beatles influence in the "I Am the Walrus" opening riff of the epic "Vows," which, at five minutes, is the album's longest and most creative track as it breaks into an unusual Santana-ish jazzy midsection.
