Retro chique fun for all

"Back in the mid to late 90's there seemed to a quite a few Japanese female bands with a sort of go go style and none of them were nearly as fun as Shonen Knife.What separates this band from many similiar ones is the way they mix great garage rock with professional musicianship.Although this style of music has seemed to die out in both mainstream and indy circles there will always be a place for this almost perfect pop left to us by the band."
Keep Rockin' Shonen Knife!

"The late Kurt Cobain said of Shonen Knife, "The first time I heard them I was transformed into a giddy teenager at a Beatles concert." I know how he felt! Nirvana helped promote Shonen Knife in the USA and for that they will have my eternal gratitude. "Brand New Knife" must be Shonen Knive's best work! The more I listen to it the more I MUST listen to it! The 70's best rock sounds are given new, vibrant life here. These three ladies from Osaka blast out waves of guitar crunching, drum bashing sound taking me back to rock's golden era simultaniously adding their unique new-age touch. Their songs cover many subjects, from a simple message about good nutrition to ESP. This is classic Shonen Knife at their best!"
Pretty good from the veteran punk rockers

"The album starts out really strong with the energetic Explosion and has other good 'rock out' songs you can speed down the highway while listening with your windows down.But there are a few spots where an almost lazy feel takes over.Hey Magic Joe and The Perfect World aren't bad songs but they don't really 'fit' in the feel of everything.The inclusion of several japanese lanuage music tracks is a nice bonus.Still a great purchase if you're a fan of the groups other albums, but I enjoyed their newer album Happy Hour a little more..."
