Synopsis

Amazon.com
Redd Kross continues to mine kitschy '70s rock and pop, but nothing here matches the exuberance of the carefully crafted hooks on 1990's Third Eye. The McDonalds sound jaded and creepy as they sing about cruising for teenage girls on "Only A Girl" and "Afterschool Special," and only "Huge Wonder" and "Visionary" have the AM-radio singalong choruses that are a staple of the group's best tunes. --Jim DeRogatis

CD Reviews

I was there

"I had the unique opportunity to visit Ocean Way studios on a mixing day for this CD. The sound coming off the board astonished me. I had recently become acquainted with Red Krosses new guitarist Eddie Kurdziel. He invited me to stop by. Now, I had heard early mix-downs, but nothing could have prepared me for the final product. These guys HAD IT!!! A hit record that showed not only the depth of there abilities as writers and players, but also that they had a group formula that jived (how many lineups the McDonald brothes had backing them up???? I think this is rhetorical). They backed up STP on tour for 2 years. Then, Phaseshifter faded into obscure oblivion. And that is just wrong, man.

You must get this record.

(Eddie Kurdziel RIP)"
Why aren't these guys playing stadiums?!

"With this collection Redd Kross proves once again that they are the most overlooked/under-rated band on the scene today and it's a DAMN SHAME!"Phase Shifter" contains infectious hooks combined with the kind of sensible power pop that ordinarily would sell millions. Unfortunately for all the talent contained within these grooves, Redd Kross goes virtually unnoticed by mass pop marketeers. In short if you love "Power Pop" with an edge, you owe it to yourself to give this CD more than one spin. It is nothing less than a masterpiece of heart felt pop craftmenship."
Do yourself a huge favor...

"i bought this album 7 years ago six months after it came out...the reason that i am writing this now is because this is the best album ever made. it is sad that this isn't even in print anymore, and even sadder that soooooo few people have ever even heard it. even those familiar with redd kross barely know this album. very unfortunate...if you ever liked the beatles you need this album. if you ever liked nirvana you need this album. if you've ever even heard of the term 'rock'n'roll' you need this album. everyone needs this like they need air. i am not kidding. i've listened to this album literally thousands of times and i still get shivers listening to many of the songs. i have yet to hear a more perfect hook than 'ms. lady evans'. defintely a breath of fresh air in today's musical climate... to say the very least."
