Annie Activator / Press

“Annie Activator, 9 tracks. One might be tempted to compare Annie Activator's gritty rock n' roll to Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, but The more I Listen, the more I think the Donnas are a better touch point, which means this is a perfectly fine, but not extraordinary work. Just don't think about it too hard, and you'll enjoy yourself just fine. Or think about it with your groin instead of your head. These punk-tinged pop-rock songs have just enough bite and hooks to keep things interesting, and the band is smart enough not to let any touchy-feely ballads get in the way of a good time. Nobody will be throwing yearly birthday parties for these guys like Nicole Tammaro and Co. do for Jett each year, but if you're just looking for a good time, there are worse places you can look.”
