She joins the lineup of Blaine Cartwright (lead vox, guitar), Ruyter Suys (lead guitar, backing vox) and Jeremy Thompson (drums) for a very enjoyable album. I had heard the band before but never really followed them which made this the first time I sat down and focused on them. I have to admit that I enjoyed this CD very much for it rocks from beginning to end with a basic groove that truly works for the band. There is nothing over the top or too experimental in this music just your standard chords that worked so well for so many bands over the years.

There is also a bit of a “southern-fried” feel to the record and the additional female vocal adds a nice appeal to the already driving rhythms. Visually the presence of these hard rocking ladies might add to a fun stage performance and antics that play off the name and tunes.
