A Slice Of Lemon
"A Slice Of Lemon" 2XCD (Kill Rock Stars / Lookout!)
40 songs on this CD, ranging from hardcore to punk to pop to noise. Quite a bit of it is lo-fi, and most of is good. Red #9's poppy punk is quite kick as they borrow a few melodies from Screeching Weasel, while Men's Recovery Project and Worst Case Scenario offer some extreme terror for noise fans. Shaken 69 stirs up the mix with a dash of ska on "Rudy Rudy," Sunnychar's "Mr Holiday" is a bouncy, kicky, happy pop romp which is probably guaranteed by Lloyd's of London to bring a smile to even the most jaded rock fan's face, and Mary Lou Lord's "Eternal Circle" is just as beautiful as the rest of her music. There is truly something for everyone on this compilation.
