Gary Glitter meets Exploding Hearts and fights The Riffs...

I have been waiting for this album for a long time and to be perfectly honest I was expecting more guitar and more licking coming from Amphetamine Blue. Regardless, the 'Boys hold down the late 70's glam pop that was so infectous once and hopefully will continue to be. I love it because it has so many influences that I love in it. The Hearts , Stones, Glitter and Bowie just to name a few. Johnny Guitar and Dugong Along are my favorite but Another Girl is a great guitar ballad. I can't wait to see them live!

Fantastic Power Pop

Anyone familiar with The Exploding Hearts knows that they 1) recorded the best power pop album of the last 20 years and 2) nearly all died in a van crash soon afterwards in 2003. Out of the tragedy comes another genius gem with the lone survivor of the Hearts carrying on in the Nice Boys. For fans of Flamin' Groovies, The Beat, 20/20, The Quick, etc..

Not quite what I was expecting

I guess I was looking for the Exploding Hearts part II (as if that could ever happen) but this is the album that had to be made and Terry Six and co. should be commended for not trying to milk past glories. This amazing debut is more in debt to 70's pop than punk but like the Hearts' best songs, The Nice Boys infuse their influences with youthful exhuberance lacking from most of today's music. Stand out tracks are Only In Dreams, Ain't That Beat and Another Girl. If you want to feel young and excited about music again then this album is a must buy.

The roots of the Nice Boys lie in the Exploding Hearts, a young power pop band from Portland, OR. Formed in the early 2000s but spiritually influenced by the late-'70s British power pop scene of the Buzzcocks and the Jam, the Exploding Hearts released an extremely promising debut album, Guitar Romantic, on Dirtnap Records in the spring of...
