I have to disagree with the previous poster, a long time ago I went to the Tiki Tones web page where you can listen to the tracks for both albums right the way through. After a few goes round the real player there was no question in my mind that the second album, Suburban Savages is *BY FAR* the better record, after which I went out and ordered a copy and have had it on high rotation ever since then
The tunes are so strong and together on this release whereas I found the first album quite ordinary and cliched in it's production. In many ways I love the dark haunted island stuff, mixed with powerful pumping surf tracks, and this album delivers allot of both.
Best tracks to listen for are Night of the Tiki's, Topple the Moai, CX9, Twister and many more. Killer surf album which is only barely matched by the Fathoms *Overboard* album. If you like this album go get the Fathoms one next, and if you already have the Fathoms album then this should be hot on your list!

Well played "tiki" music that is competently recorded (am I the only one who gets tired of having to fiddle with the sound settings in order to enjoy listening to a CD?). Interesting and unusual cover of One Mint Julep is the star of this collection. Their cover of The Shadows' Kon Tiki is well done as well. High Seas Drifter is a surf version of a spaghetti western theme. Not a bad song on the CD. Well worth the money.

This CD sounds like it could have been the soundtrack to a 60s surf movie! If you like the Ventures, you will probably like this stuff. Spectre Detector sounds a little like the Munster's Theme. The CD has a lot of guitars, drums, and organ. These songs are what you would expect to hear in the background of a movie scene at a beach club. The sound may be best described as a lounge/surf hybrid.

The Tiki Tones are a good band, but their first album ("Idol Pleasures") is much better than this one. They seem to be running out of their best material on this album. Still, there are some snappy tunes here, but I was expecting more because the first album is so great.
