Editorial Reviews

Hazy, dreamy and genre-defining, this collection of songs proves that the incredible amount of blog and press hype for Best Coast is more than warrented. "Crazy For You" makes a strong case for the ultimate summer record and record of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Coast - Crazy For You July 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Best Coast's debut record is a lovely little scuzzy pop gem. The band has been building a substantial buzz over the last year or so with a string of underground hit singles and splits, and now they've finally unleashed their first great work to the hungry masses. Best Coast, as the name implies, is a beach-inspired pop outfit, blending fuzzy melodies and simple, lovelorn lyrics to great effect. Crazy For You recalls the kind of heartsick feelings of teenage years, a simpler and more powerful time that we all long for again at some point.

The album is short, but it's somewhat a boon, because this is music that could easily outstay its welcome. A 50+ minute album of fuzzy pop songs is inevitably going to lose its punch after awhile, so it was wise of the band to keep the album short and sweet. One of the more disappointing elements of the album is the reuse of a number of those aforementioned singles, which isn't uncommon, but given the time the band has been working on this record, I was hoping for a brand new set of songs. Nonetheless, the singles have been reworked and sharpened to a finer edge, and the album is truly a testament to razor-sharp love songs. The lyrics may not be the deepest you'll ever hear, but they're heartfelt and powerful in context of this collection of uptempo pop songs.

Best Coast has been regarded through this year as a band to watch, and Crazy For You does not disappoint. A great album for any fan of noise and pop and any combination thereof.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm and fuzzy lo-fi March 4, 2011
By SKOLVK
Format:Audio CD
One day at the rock climbing gym I heard Best Coast's "Boyfriend" and couldn't get it out of my freak'n head. I usually just download a song I really like instead of buying the complete album(I'm cheap that way) but I decided to gamble and pick up "Crazy for you". I can safely say I'm pleasantly surprised but not blown away by it. Best Coast is one of those bands that only do a couple things but they do them really well. The majority of "Crazy for you" consists of sort and sweet fuzzy pop songs about unrequited love. Singer/song writer Bethany Cosentino moans and coos about the one that got away or the one who doesn't understand her affections. She has a very haunting voice that sounds great with reverb. They have a very unique sound that can send chills down your spine. If you like shoe gaze, surf rock or self-deprecating love songs then Best Coast is for you. Put it in when the sun is setting, roll down the windows and just drive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Surf-Pop, But an Overrated Album October 22, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I don't write reviews for products very often, but I felt compelled to for Best Coast's debut album after seeing the overwhelmingly positive reviews here. While I enjoy their upbeat, easygoing surf-pop sound, I can't possibly give a high rating to an album that sounds like one repetitive 31-minute-long song. I have never listened to an album where I couldn't distinguish one song from the next. If I had to rank the songs, I would fail miserably. Adding on to that is the formulaic repetitiveness of their lyrics. I'm pretty sure every single song consists of choruses or hooks that repeat the same one or two lines at least four consecutive times before moving on to the next set of repeating lyrics. So overall, it's a fun summer record to play, but be prepared to zone out after the second song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best Coast but very good coast January 1, 2011
By Ajuvix
Format:Audio CD
What a great sound. That perfect low-fi mix really suits the sharp and lush vocals. The guitars have that california bounce that is easy to identify, hard to imitate. Some great pop tunes here. That being said, the lyrics water everything down to dumb-dumb status. Remedial lyrics would be giving it more credit than its worth. They're really mindless 12 year old girl writing poetry about the boy she likes lyrics. Its a shame, had there been a more mature lyrical vibe this music would be unstoppable. As it is, its enjoyable, but gets old hearing about the exact same thing in every song. Our Deal is the best song for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cats and Codependence February 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Rock music has always been dominated by men. From Buddy Holly's pining for Peggy Sue to the libidinal poses of Jim Morrison, most rock and roll songs have been told from the perspective of those with a Y chromosome. In fact, the masculine point of view has been so ingrained in rock and roll that when a woman wants into the tree house she has to prove that, like the rest of the guys, she can take just as many drugs and partake in just as much indiscriminant sex. Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, and Joan Jett, to name a few, became rock and roll icons by asserting that whatever guys could do, they could do better. The approach of what's-good-for-the-goose-is-even-better-for-the-gander has had its benefits, allowing women to break from roles traditionally created for them, but just as often it can serve to reinforce the whore/Madonna dichotomy that stretches back to long before Chuck Berry fashioned the first rock and roll song.

With this, incomplete, history of women in rock music I've come to Best Coast's debut album, Crazy for You, with some trepidation. Lead singer Bethany Cosentino has a penchant for writing songs about lounging and longing that stand in stark contrast to the pioneers of women in rock. Instead of making lyrics like "Take another little piece of my heart" sound like a challenge, Cosentino sings as if she spent the entire album holding onto her paramour's pants legs as he strolled out the door. On the opener, "Boyfriend," she sings, "I hope that he's at home / Waiting by his phone"; later, on "Goodbye," she croons "Every time you leave this house / Everything falls apart"; and, finally, on "Bratty B," she pleads "Pick up the phone / I wanna talk about how / I miss you so much.
