Great jangle/powerpop produced by Mitch Easter
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This album (and the band) deserved a much better fate than what was given. There is probably nobody else on the planet more suited to producing a jangly powerpop record than Mitch Easter, and the production on Love Buzz suits the songs perfectly. This album is crammed full of melodic songs with male-female harmonies throughout. In addition to the jangle, there are some nice distorted guitar leads placed in here and there which wouldn't sound out of place on an early-90's Boo Radleys or Smashing Pumpkins album. Chances are that if you're reading this review on this obscure out-of-print album from 15 years ago, this is right up your alley and you should order a copy."

"Lovebuzz is a well crafted album and an outstanding entry into the world of power pop. this overlooked Australian group wrote some fine catchy tunes that contain flashes of brilliance as on the swirling "Blush" and the sugary jangle-pop of "Everything You Said." i'm not sure if they are popular in Australia, but back in 1990, this album would have fit in perfectly with most stuff being played on American college radio."
