"The Army of Shapes Between Wars" (Victory; 2006)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Eighties rock lives according to Action Action, whose latest 13-track homage to that decade is laden with a bevy of synths, tortured vocals, sugarcoated choruses, and ... lameness.
Cashing in on the hipster dance rock phenomenon, this quartet's Depeche Mode-by-way-of-The Cars delivery is a hard pill to swallow even for fans that remember Duran Duran and Cutting Crew as incendiary artists.
Avoid this disc unless you have a '80s fix that Wang Chung canít cure.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
