Power pop. BluesBunny likes power pop. Guys with guitars making noise. Radio friendly is the phrase that best suits their music. Good tunes and sharp lyrics reward repeated listens. Each time you play this CD, it gets better

The opening track, "God in Training", has to be one of the best expressions of teenage angst ever recorded. Songwriter and lead singer Willem Hartong - like so many of the greats - manages to infuse his lyrics with a certain darkness of the soul that balances the bright, bouncy sound.

Catchy and commercial with intelligent lyrics, this is a recommended purchase.
