Scandal, Controversy & Romance

Scandal, Controversy & Romance

by The Prissteens
     
 
Scandal, Controversy and Romance, the debut album from the Prissteens, sounds like it could have been made by a snotty '60s girl-band. The album's seemingly innocent lyrics focus on boys, parties and going out, but the music is tougher with an edge that screams '70s punk. The band has often been compared to both the Ramones and Phil Spector's girl groups.

Overview

Scandal, Controversy and Romance, the debut album from the Prissteens, sounds like it could have been made by a snotty '60s girl-band. The album's seemingly innocent lyrics focus on boys, parties and going out, but the music is tougher with an edge that screams '70s punk. The band has often been compared to both the Ramones and Phil Spector's girl groups. Scandal, Controversy and Romance is loud, trashy and sugary sweet. Songs like "I Don't Cry," "Run Back to You" and "Beat You Up" have catchy, upbeat choruses and brash guitar solos backed by fueled drumming. "The Hound" and "What's She Got" show off the band's raunchier side with heavy guitars and blunt lyrics. Even in their darker lyrical moments, the Prissteens manage to convey a party atmosphere from the album's first track to the last.
