"The Puppini Sisters are full of attitude, humor and fun! Their harmonies are incredibly tight and their little core 3 piece band sounds like much, much more. Their CDs are great fun but if you get a chance to see them live you'll see that there is no way to capture their tongue-in-cheek antics... The Andrews Sisters would be proud..."
Fun retro songs, done with real craft

"In other reviews I read where Mercella Puppini, Kate Mullins and Stephanie O'Brien, the Puppini "Sisters" are only singing in a style already "done". As if today's talentless rappers and samplers had something original. So much of today's other music might be "original", but it's ugly, and the "artists" have nothing to say, nothing I want to hear.
What really compelling, what stands out with the Puppini's music is the level of devotion and craft, the years of practice it must have taken to be able to sing close Andrews Sisters harmonies with newer songs. It is so refreshing. Harmony - the lost art. Music, I learned at an early age is composed of three elements, Melody, rhythm and harmony!
There is a touch of tongue in cheek occationally, but that's part of the fun, that they don't take themselves too seriously. I like the funny, world-weary "Jilted" and "I Can't Believe I'm not a Millionaire" songs. (Me, too - if there were any justice in this cruel world...). "Old Cape Cod" is a wonderful copy of the fifties hit by Patti Page, hits me in the heart and takes me back the first time I heard Page. As is said elsewhere, much to "Ruby Woo" is not retro Andrews sisters songs, but original and new music given their treatment. Particularly sucessful in Andrews style is the bouncy Bangles hit "Walk Like an Egytian".
Luxuriate in the wonders of vocal harmony.
I like the three women as "temptresses" in colorful stockings and hell high heels on the cover (and more lingerie inside).
This music is infectiously fun, clever, retro and most important, full of real musicanship. The perfect cure for the gloom of The Great Recession.
Not a bad cut on the album.
for those who like harmony, the Ditty Bops are another girl group who remember how to sing it.
