“The Cute Lepers are a Seattle band that mixes power pop with punk, kind of like Cheap Trick meets the Buzzcocks plus a shot of Elvis Costello. My favorite songs on this third album bring to mind the epic pop bombs of the criminally underrated Tom Robinson. If you remember the '70s UK punk band The Boys, vocalist Duncan "Kid" Reid wrote a song just for this release, "77." And one more namecheck: the lead-off track, "Tribute to Charlie," is about UK Subs frontman Charlie Harper. Many artists like this fail the repeat-listen test. You can either feel the band winking at you as they swipe attitude and riffs from famous underground bands or they fancy themselves so cool that their hipness becomes off-putting. But the Cute Lepers seem to just go for broke with fun music that's smart enough to get better with each play.”
