Being a massive music nerd, one of the biggest attractions to this album for me was the replacement of all bass guitar with a Moog Synthesizer. Now don't let that put you off, this is not a George Benson album!
A ten song album clocks in at an admirable 55 minutes, the first track Nervous begins with clattering waves of sea and voices before the a great thumping guitar and drum beat that the bass line dances over and Joan Wasser sings with the sweetest voice. It's frankly such a perfect combination that they get away with six minutes of virtually little variation, those sly foxes!
Track two rolls in with a great drum beat and piano pattern, you know the chorus is going to be great even before it starts just by this confident swagger. Again her voice is breathtaking. Action Man, Flash feel born to sit with each other, a sensation of some almost great wave builds slowly, the first half ends on Run For Love and happily delivers that great wave of relief and pleasure.
It's very noticeable no track is under four minutes long, each song comes across like an extended study on how confident and capable a songwriter Joan Wasser has become by her third album.
