"Pavlov's Dog" (Revolution Music; 2008)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Publik Parking' s"Pavlov's Dog" is nothing if not original. The band has a very unique sound with funky, almost alternative beat, female vocals that are sometimes reminiscent of Chrissie Hynde and sometimes a little edgier. The funky bounce is present through most of the songs here but occasionally they get a little more extreme. My favorite track was actually "Lose Control," which isn't very hard and fast at all but itís quirky and a little bizarre.
Speaking of bizarre, the CD ends with two hidden bonus tracks ... well, actually one hidden bonus track repeated twice. It's a poorly produced ballad that could have easily been left off entirely.
The production throughout is a little muddy at times which detracts a little from the overall effectiveness but if you're looking for something a little different, "Pavlov's Dog" may just be it.

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.
