Velvet Crush - Teenage Symphonies To God - 1994

This is a HUGE classic of the `power pop` idiom and new comers to `the sound` should consider this to be one of, say, 20 `must haves` to represent what insanely memorable and catchy pop music is all about. "4 1/2 stars......Velvet Crush`s second album is an old-fashioned pop record: 12 songs in 40 minutes, filled with ultra-melodic guitar hooks and simple, memorable melodies. While it`s traditional in form, the music on Teenage Symphonies to God isn`t retro. Velvet Crush manage to inject a real enthusiasm and freshness in the standard three-minute pop song, whether they`re playing originals that sound like forgotten classics ("Time Wraps Around You," "This Life is Killing Me," "My Blank Pages," "Hold Me Up") or forgotten classics themselves ( Gene Clark `s "Why Not Your Baby" and Matthew Sweet `s "Something`s Gotta Give"). With a crisp, warm production from Mitch Easter ,Teenage Symphonies to God is one record that deserves to take its title from Brian Wilson ."-AMG
