Hard hitting rock from the Danish pair. From Amazon.com reviewer E.A. Solinas:

"Distorted punk-pop-rock, with an eerie 50s-style cover and a small number of short, hard-hitting songs...Starting with a piercing electronic screech, "Attack of the Ghost Riders" is a steady track, followed by the more flowing "Veronica Fever," the siren-filled "Cops on Our Tail," the heavy-thumping "Do You Believe Her," the rocking "My Tornado" with its haunting whispers, and a few others. Comparisons to the White Stripes may be the wrong thing to listen to; the Raveonettes sound quite different from the Stripes. They don't have the flexibility or versatility; the songs are a lot more monotonous musically, as many of them seem alike when you first listen. On the second or third round, the differences start to pop out. It's also very short -- only eight songs, and most of them are about three minutes or less. Despite this, the music is fairly raw and dark, but broodingly danceable. The distorted, slightly distant vocals seem to blend in with the whirling guitar feedback. And the songwriting has the same dark quality as the music, sometimes well-written and sometimes just repetitive. ("Delinquent girl/and all her angels on death row") The words dwell on darkness, crime, Vegas lights, and catching rays off the sun."

Incredibly catchy--Buddy Holly meets Sonic Youth

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm not usually into musically simplistic three minute pop punk, but I can't get this EP out of my stereo. Yes, this duo does wears their influences on their sleaves, but it's incredibly catchy and well-written for what it is, so who cares? Plus, I think they display a wider range of influences than they get credit for. For example, as a longtime metalhead, I state with confidence that the tuned down riff on "Bowels of the Beast" is total Black Sabbath worship. And considering the title of the song, it's obviously meant to be. Also, "Cops on our Tail" seems very much to be referencing The Bangles' "Walk Like an Egyptian," itself rather retro, but one has to admit that channeling the '60's through the '80's is a brilliant move. I bought this CD for $1.99 at a used CD store and it may well be the best use of two bucks I've ever made."
