4.0 out of 5 stars wicked dark fun, January 26, 2006
This review is from: 1965 (Audio CD)
It's pretty obvious I think the Whigs are among the most underrated bands in rock history--otherwise, I wouldn't be writing this.

After several albums mining such dark subjects chronicling love gone bad, addiction, murder, remorseful sex, and generally living the life of a modern American male Tarintino style, the boys are back with a collection of tracks that are, for a lack of a better term, light hearted. I mean, they're actually having fun here, without all that downer self-torture business (okay, maybe there's a bit of that, but it's way muted). Production values are high. Soulful background vocals, ballsy horns, and winning arrangements; this LP absolutely shines.

I know I'm gonna take a lot of flak for the following closing comment, but honestly, this is the album the Rolling Stones _wish_ they recorded.
