5.0 out of 5 stars Pure fun!!! December 1, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Read all of the good reviews below --- believe them --- dey be right on target, amigo! As regards the uptightriptideconstipated comments on sound quality made by some of the reviewers below --- were any of you alive when transistor radios were around? Geez, guys, don't you get it? The sound is perfect for the songs! It's supposed to sound cheesy and garagey and cheapononhightecho! Why do you think it's called garage music? Finally, regarding the idiot (see below) who stated that he will burn his favorite tracks and then re-sell the CD--- why don't you burn yourself, instead? With fans like you, who needs critics? Nice way to support a great and truly fun band, guy...Good grief!!!
Overall, this is GREAT, FUN, WIGGLEYOURBUNS stuff --- yeah, not as loud and raucous as previous LS stuff, but who cares?! This is a supercooliciouscheesygreaseburgerfest of an album. So there --- raspberry sounds galore to all of those who just don't get it, and especially to those below who trashed it. If you just want the sameoldsameold, just listen to Classic (puke!) Rock Radio. To the rest of you who appreciate it and want your music to be fun --- cowabunga, baby! Let's don the masks, hit the ropes, and groovydoovy!!! May the Jackets rock 4-ever. Aloha.
P.S. Yes, I am certifiably insane.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great... November 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Good album, but missing the energy of some of the previous albums. I think Velvet Touch... is still their best album (although I am dying to get my hands on the Christmas CD). At times, Supersonic Guitars just sounds flat. I also agree with previous reviews that the production isn't as good. Previous LS albums have some snap to them... this one sounds a little muted. These guys really rock, but just not very much on Supersonic Guitars. By yourself an early Christmas present, and see them live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surf's Up Again! October 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD shows that no genre ever truly dies. This is instrumental music that recalls the era of the early sixties when groups and instrumentalist such as The Ventures, The Surfaris, Dick Vale, Link Ray and England's Shadows were roaming the charts. In this album one hears the obvious inspirations from such great instrumentals as; Pipeline, Wipeout, Telstar, Apache and Sleepwalk. If you like any of the artist or songs mentioned above then this CD is a real treat.
Los Straightjackets make an obvious attempt to recreate this era by staying close to the essence. Songs are mostly performed with lead/rhythm/Bass guitar/drums with a little sax added here and there. The songs average about 2 minutes each with simple melodies (no intricate lead work). Although this CD was released in 2003 and was recorded in the digital age, the sound is kind of thin and sounds like it's coming out of a cheap transistor radio speaker, just like this kind of music should and always did. I read a couple of reviewers that cited the "poor quality" of sound and I believe that the group probably deliberately mixed it that way. This in order to recreate an era when music was often heard that way; at least that's my theory. Of course, if you have grown up with stereo systems and boom boxes, I can understand why this would sound weird. I have not listened to music through a transistor radio for a very long time.
I understand, from reading other reviewers that this band puts on quite a lively show, performing in mask accompanied with go-go dancers and that theirs are highly spirited events. I can't wait to see them. The CD art can be viewed in 3-D (glasses are provided in the CD), a very unique presentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! (so not all surf music sounds the same after all!!) September 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
These guys always deliver the goods. Each release is always worth grabbing and for a genre that is naturally rooted in the past they manage to keep things fresh and try out new ideas and twists on their sound. This time it's a down an' dirty and groovy as hell production that brings the twist, and while the geetars are as exciting as ever it those crazy voodoo beats that steal the show for me!(esp. track 5) If this disc don't make you wanna wiggle like you got a stick up ya wazoo see your doctor quick- you may well be dead!
Any fan of Los Straitjackets knows they love a hot band with a great image and great gimmicks- this time you get a 3D pick your own cover (great portraits of the band) with 3D specs included! looks great, sounds even better!
Some people like their fave bands to give them the same album again and again. Wise boys and girls know surprises and mixing it up are how fantastic bands stay fantastic.One of the coolest releases this year from one the finest and most rewarding acts on the planet. Splendid. Full instrumental brain candy agogo!
(tasty guest appearences from DJ and Billy from X & Jon Spencer too)

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! October 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
First of all, the flat production on Velvet sucked, not this album. This is sixties inspired all the way and the sound fits the songs and mood. I really don't understand how some fans don't appreciate this album unless they haven't given it enough listens. Isn't Love Grand is great, Beach Bag rocks with some truly bitchin' solos, Midnight in Salerno has gotta be one of Danny Amis' best tracks, and the drumming is definately out of control all the way through. The shorter song lengths fit the group better as well, since, let's face it, any album can be tough to sit through all they way, let alone instrumental music. If you like Los Straitjackets, I gurantee you'll like most of this and isn't that worth the 12 bucks?
By the way, to the "fan" that says he'll burn his favorite tracks and sell the disc. No true fan burns a group's cds (especially a low profile band). I'm sure their other discs have provided enough entertaiment to where you can eat the money. Support your local band, jackass.
