Synopsis

Amazon.com
If there was justice in the music world, the first album by the Los Angeles quartet the Muffs would have been just as successful as the debut by their labelmates, Green Day. Of course, there isn't and it wasn't. Co-founder Melanie Vammen left the band, Kim Shattuck regrouped as a trio, and the Muffs are back with Blonder and Blonder. The album has its punk-pop charms- including rollicking tunes such as "Agony" and "Oh Nina"-but most of the songs simply aren't as memorable as those in the first batch. -- Jim DeRogatis

CD Reviews

Excellent Hard-Core Alterna-Pop

"I have no idea how to classify the Muffs, but The CD is EXCELLENT. "On and On" and "I need a face" are probably my two favorite, Alternative powerpop with an attitude. I am just suprised more of the alternative radio stations have not picked up on this. (The Muffs are a must-see Live band!)"
Rock out!!

"I LIKE the screaming, but it's not just screams. It's nice melody and harmonies and catchy tunes. It ROCKS!"
One of the catchiest bands I have ever heard

"I was perusing my cassette collection when I came across The Muffs' second album "Blonder and Blonder". I almost forgot how much I played this tape to death back when I was a big alt-rock/punk geek almost a decade ago. I remember hearing "Won't Come Out to Play" on a local radio station in Milwaukee, WI (when I lived there for a few years) and was hooked right from the get go. Unlike their counterparts such as Blink 182 and Good Charlotte (gagging sounds), The Muffs actually have street cred with the underground punk scene especially in the LA/Silverlake scene. I don't care what the reviewer who said that Kim Shattuck was a fourth rate songwriter, apparently s/he hasn't listened to the likes of Avril Lavigne and Good Charlotte. If that person wants to listen to deep lyrics, may I suggest for him/her to go listen to Bob Dylan or Joni Mitchell? Kim may not be Bob Dylan or Joni Mitchell but she has a keen ear for infectious pop-punk music. BTW...I love the fact that her voice isn't polished but rather raspy. It is hard not to have songs like "Red Eyed Troll" and "Bad Tomorrow" stuck in your head for days. "Blonder and Blonder" is a fun catchy album. Why the public hasn't caught on to their music and yet they listen to the ilk of Good Charlotte and Blink 182 is beyond my comprehension. The Muffs should be bigger than those two bands with their radio-friendly music."
