"The very premise of this musical -- executives borrowing an apartment to cheat on their wives -- makes this show entertainment for grown-ups. If you're cool with your older children being exposed to infidelity to the nth degree, they will likely enjoy the wit of the dialogue and the bouncy score. But take note: there is a suicide attempt and a drunk scene -- not exactly fare for young ones. Debut LP by Ridgewood, NJ shoegazers Big Troubles. It's pretty good. Parental advisory stickers not included." With glossy full-color insert and download coupon.
"This immense new album from Big Troubles follows on from a great four-song EP for the Olde English Spelling Bee singles club, featuring the New Jersey fuzz-pop project bejewelled with pop hooks and spurts of brain-scorching noise. There's an abundance of blistering C86-style pop nuggets on here, from the distortion-surfing Bite Yr Tongue to the euphorically hooked-up Freudian Slips. There's an overwhelmingly fizzy, treble-some recording style here which imbues the whole thing with a hazy, nostalgic quality that reminds us of everything from My Bloody Valentine to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr at their very peak -- making for one of the standout lo-fi pop records of the year bar none. Very highly recommended." -- Boomkat
