Big Star -by-way-of- GBV opener "Feel It, Superior" feels, at first, almost shockingly bright, its sleek, nigh-on-glossy production lending the guitars a kind of metallic glint that feels miles removed from the smoke-riddled slow-burn Sparhawk's long favored in Low.
This sheen's not entirely new to Retribution, although the intensity is: "White Wolf" and especially "Workin' Hard," from 's great 2 , hinted at the pared down, radio-ready-for sonics and what Sparhawk's called " Huey Lewis harmonies ," all of which make strong showings on Revolution.
But Sparhawk, a guy who's spent most of his career making records for the middle of the night, has rarely sustained a disposition as breezy as the one he affects on Revolution's first three songs; it's barely eight minutes, but it's something.
The pleasantly propulsive "Superior" uses up its tricks in its first minute or so, but it slides easily into the chunky chords and slightly silly falsetto of the Rick Springfieldian "The Stone Revolution! There are references to things like turnin' up volumes and crankin' trebles throughout Revolution , with the emphasis very much placed on those apostrophes. The Loverboy-lite"Maharisha" takes 2 's "Workin'" and sets its sights squarely on the weekend; get past its veneer of Eastern spirituality, and underneath, it's pure cheese, the kind of thing you'd expect to hear rattling around some sweaty concrete bowl circaAlbum · · 4 Songs.
