Happy Birthday VIRGINI
Second album from the Kentucky quintet.
Thank You, Happy Birthday is a confusing listen. If you were expecting more of the same garagey, funk-inflected rawk that filled CTE’s debut, you’ll likely walk away disappointed. Thank You... just doesn’t know what it wants to be – one minute it’s all uncomfortable screams and squalling feedback ( Indy Kidz) , the next they’re playing at being the Pixies with Around My Head , and somewhere in between they’re having a go at being the Beach Boys ( Right Before My Eyes). It’s not a bad album, it’s just one that appears to be having an identity crisis.
