THE DIRTY ROYALS
"Obsessed America" (UK2LA; 2007)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Just as their label suggests, this quartet known as The Dirty Royals have arrived in La-la land via the U.K., fusing elements of both area's punk rock to its five-track endeavor.
Glossed over with the radio-friendly West Coast pop-punk while keeping nuances of Jolly 'Ol England's bratty delivery intact, tracks like "Like A Sucker" and "CIA" have as much in common with garage rock as they do Brit-pop from the mod days, and make for the perfect middle-of-the-road listen for mixed company and grown-ups that still like to crank out the guitar jams.

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.
