Album Review

Bay Area band Mother Hips come over less hippie/more power popster on Green Hills of Earth. "Life in the City" has the motor drive of early-'80s U.K. new wave; "Take Us Out" has a much lazier, '70s MOR pop feeling.

A step forward on all counts (retro-isms notwithstanding!), Green Hills finds Mother Hips in complete synch with the sonic and verbal pop zeitgeist.
