"Only Rock'n Roll could be this fun, and the simple fact that it comes so pure from a group obviously detached from the English sphere, is a testemant to the strength and vitality it still has left. When you listen to Rumble for the first time, your immediately struck, "Hey Johnny Thunders did that", "the Jam sounded like that...", "Sounds a bit like Television there...", this is pure mod/garage/noise/early-punk here, nothing technically new, or amazing. Their strength comes from their ability to walk the fine line between homage and indulgence, taking the best from all of rock's early abandoned schools. Or, maybe, these styles found them, I mean, one look at a photo of the band, and your in awe of the glow of a laconic cool that hasn't been seen in the U.S. since sun-era Elvis... Anyway, I ramble, if you want a genuine good time, and a nice sampler (this is a compilation, not original album) of what is sure to be an underground sensation, give this a shot."
