Morningwood [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
What could be better than an album's worth of good, clean fun? How about a disc completely awash in good, dirty fun -- which is exactly what this New York–bred combo deliver on their self-titled bow. The raunch 'n' roll assault is led by frontwoman Chantal Claret, whose sensual rasp recalls classic rock bad grrls like Christina Amphlett of the Divinyls and especially the sadly overlooked Inger Lorre of the Nymphs -- particularly on the playful, glammed-up "Take Off Your Clothes." '70s-vintage attitudes pop up again and again here -- from the Bay City Rollers–styled name-spelling chant that punctuates "Nth Degree" to the falsetto chorus that vivifies "Jetsetter" -- but ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
What could be better than an album's worth of good, clean fun? How about a disc completely awash in good, dirty fun -- which is exactly what this New York–bred combo deliver on their self-titled bow. The raunch 'n' roll assault is led by frontwoman Chantal Claret, whose sensual rasp recalls classic rock bad grrls like Christina Amphlett of the Divinyls and especially the sadly overlooked Inger Lorre of the Nymphs -- particularly on the playful, glammed-up "Take Off Your Clothes." '70s-vintage attitudes pop up again and again here -- from the Bay City Rollers–styled name-spelling chant that punctuates "Nth Degree" to the falsetto chorus that vivifies "Jetsetter" -- but the quartet seldom sound dated. That has something to do with the slipperiness imparted by guitarist Richard Steel late of Spacehog, who knows when to let his instrument chime with ice-cream-truck sweetness -- as he does on "Babysitter" -- and when to use it like a set of brass knuckles. That's the approach he takes on "Easy," one of several purposefully abrasive tunes that bear traces of the Pixies in their DNA, a vibe that's furthered by the production of Gil Norton, a regular behind the controls for Frank Black and company. That DNA can also connect Morningwood to ancestors as varied as the Stooges, Adam and the Ants, and -- thanks to Claret -- Mae West, making theirs a family tree that's well worth climbing.
All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
On their early EPs Morningwood only suggested the Pixies, since the songs were too anemic and trashy to really hit like that band's best material. It's a different story with the quartet's Capitol debut, where longtime Pixies producer Gil Norton amplifies the basslines and coed vocal dynamics in re-recorded versions of early MW tracks like "Take off Your Clothes" and "New York Girls." The early "Jetsettermusicletter" is trimmed down to "Jetsetter" here, but still plays off of "Wave of Mutilation." Norton gives the songs oomph, no doubt. But the fuller sound doesn't hide the sense that Morningwood is writing sexy catch phrases around rhythms that have been heard before. Vocalist Chantal Claret has a lot of sass, but while there are strains of the Gossip's Beth Ditto in her delivery, there's a haughtiness to everything Claret sings that sounds way too affected, like the too-perfect rumples in the togs of the scene-makers at any of New York City's hipster convergences. "Televisor" and "Babysitter" have their kicky buzz built in, and the bright synth-punk of "Nth Degree" is a promising departure. But Morningwood still feels like calculated fluff, even if it's calculated fluff that's mildly fun.

    Pretty Cool CD

    Interesting CD. Pixies bass meets L7's screeching voice, sprinkle in some 70's appeal and you have this very cool cd. It's fun to listen to and even more fun to turn up the volume and dance to.
