CD Reviews

A retrofuture gem!
Paul Minot | Waterville, ME United States | 11/08/2001

"Remember the Seinfeld episode when Jerry and George reflect on their disappointment that flying cars have yet to appear? Well, the Revillos hark back to that era--they are the hardcore alternative to Jet Screamer in the Jetsons pop universe. Imagine the B-52s OD'd on steroids and amphetamines--they're THAT good! Fantastic pop-rock masterpieces played in Hyperdrive, and the bonus tracks are wonderful. Bitchin' guitars, drums, and boy-girl vocals. Did I mention that it's recorded in SnatzoSound? Get REVVED UP!!!"
Finally - THE CD!!!

"After wearing out my Rev Up on vinyl years ago, it's good to see the re-release of this priceless ode to bouncy mid-sixties "beat" bands. Ignore the detractors who don't understand the context or historicity of this album. This is the real deal. A band tighter and more energetic than rock has experienced in 20 years!!! Although this album was frequently compared to the prior released B-52's first album, there really is no comparison. The Revillos can play the B-52's under the rug."
Great band!!!

"I've heard them last week for the first time...when I was doing it I was thinking " I can't beleive what I'm hearing...and I like it!!" If you wanna hear something buy this cd, maybe a little naive but...that's the point!! it's like a fusion of B'52 and the toy dolls with an insane go-go punk rock!!!...I think they were great."
