Do You Believe

Your Daughter


Atomic Shockwaves


I can sort of appreciate what they’re trying to do here – but this record winds up hit or miss with more misses than hits. Every song is totally different than the next one. Being eclectic is ok, but….here you get white-guy reggae, Cichlidy power pop, futuristic rock and periodic dreariness. Pete Moss was a beast of a drummer but is under-utilized here. Best parts are 1990 and the guitar on Oh- an otherwise dreary song. Your daughter (is a slut) has funny lyrics, but is annoying at the same time.

  1. "Your Daughter's A Slut" would have been a good theme song for an 80s sitcom with Christina Applegate.

    Is that Phil freakin' Lynott sitting in the tree???
