Seriously Kicks A**

This Album rocks. Every song on here, including the slow one, find another girl, are great. Can't believe no one else has reviewed this.

The Hives' breakthough album: Buy it. Hear it. Love it. Repeat.

This is the Hives album that first put the guys from Fagersta on the map, and if you love garage rock, it's an album that absolutely needs to be in your collection. The first song, Declare Guerre Nucleare, is 90 seconds of kick-a*s bliss, and every song that follows it backs it right up. Main Offender and Hate To Say I Told You So (which inspired a Richard Cheese cover -- clear evidence of its greatness) make you want to start smashing stuff. In a good way. See these guys in concert if you ever get a chance.
