I’m not really a big video watcher. I like my music in my ears, not my eyes. But the video for (You’re Better) Than Ever is a blast. It’s a terrific lead single. And Shape of My Hands is a great second single.
When Illuminati Hotties veer away from power pop and get low, on songs like Cuff, the songs don’t work as well. The production is quiet, so actually hearing the songs themselves can be a challenge, but in the end it doesn’t feel like there’s much there.
But make sure you stick around for Pressed 2 Death. It’s another fun one.
