Is it clear? yeah, it's crystal...

"I wish the rondelles had never gotten that additional guitar player. He looks like the middle Hanson brother and totally messes with their mod aesthetic. And they don't play songs about drag races anymore either, which is a total loss to the songs-about-drag-races genre. As for the rest of the CD, I really think that one listen to "mission irresistable" will have you singing along with it for years. It will make you want to find the nearest dorky sensitive boy and take him down to the roller rink so you can hold hands til it's DARK... Also: how is it possible that someone who lives in gambier ohio likes this cd? Isn't that a tiny rural town with nothing in it but some preppy college? What a mystery. Kudos to the rondelles for attracting such a diverse fan base."
This is a great cd

"seriously, this is a fantastic cd, if you like the sort of 50's-pop-meets-90's-rock style. the keyboards can be kind of jangly and annoying at times, but once you realize that oakley plays them with one drumstick while drumming with the other, you can forgive it. juliet's voice is clear and strong, and the songs have great (and funny) lyrics. best songs are "he's out of sight" and "mission: irrestistable." definitely check this cd out if you like the donnas or little red car wreck type music."
Highly recommended for angry grrls & the boys who love them

"Hey... I like the organ. Definitely appropos for fans of Tuscadero or the Donnas, or am I pigeon-holing just 'cause they got a riot teen sound going? Well, regardless this album is the jelly in my donut, the hydrogen in my water, the cream in my coffee... and you can listen to it 3 times in an hour."
