CD Reviews

Nikki rocks, but not in a figurative sense
Jay M. Malone | Oxford, Ohio | 12/31/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"One of the first punk rock bands I heard was Nikki and the Corvettes, perfect for the teenager in all of us and the teenibopper in some of us. The songs are by no means intelligent, and you might find yourself losing brain cells in the process of listening to this album, but punk rock is escapism, not illumination. The songs are tight and catchy, and get across exactly what Nikki wanted, which was the mindset of a horny preteen. Buy it if you want a good time, and don't listen to any jerk who reviews it as anything but."
Good mindless fun

"Nikki & the Corvettes were a minor blip on the cultural radar of the late '70s, a kind of Blondie lite with a touch of the Ramones. Their songs are simple, fun, catchy, sexy, and completely forgettable. Lead singer Nikki Corvette has an accessible, flirty charm that manages to be both naughtily suggestive and innocently wholesome. This well-packaged reissue CD is nice to have mostly so you can throw a few songs on a compilation mix for your friends, but it doesn't hold up to too many repeated listenings, as the Corvettes' range is simply too limited. Basically, after two or three tracks, all the songs begin to sound the same. Still, a fun rarity for anyone who's into the New York punk/pop scene."
