Description

Junk Drawer Souvenirs on CD

Over the past ten years, The Broken Toys have released countless singles and cassettes, appeared on numerous LP and CD compilations and toured Europe no less than five times. Now the Broken Toys have released their third full length, and it is, I believe, their finest album to date. Their sound is laced with all the aggressive punkiness of The New York Dolls, The Clash, Buzzcocks, and early Jam. It's tempered with the songwriting sensitivity of Richard Thompson, the bile and sarcastic temper of early Pete Townsend, and all the majesty of raw rock that we've come to expect from The Broken Toys. The songs are all pretty much 'f*** you for leaving me' love songs, but the arrangements, occasional harmonies, and constant bombast of high energy never let you down. Chameleon, Souvenir and 3:38 am show these qualities at their best. As the album progresses, The Broken Toys ease off the amphetamine rock approach to showcase a more thoughtful and sophisticated side. As seen in songs like Wander and Now She's a Whore, The Broken Toys have come into their own, showing a new depth of musicianship, bringing more to the table musically and creatively. The punk-rockabilly Burn Holes the upbeat country-twangy The Drink in my Hand and the Buffalo Tom-tinged Punching Bag are proof positive that this band is still bursting with great ideas and killer songs. Listen to the special bonus track at the end of the moody closer 3:38 am. 'Tis quite a hoot!!! This album will rock your world. (Review by Joel Simches - The Noise; Boston, MA)
