Track by Track Review
Cruddy ambient audio aside, "Babies" is a cool song for instrumental treatment. An easy flowing melody glides out from a solid backup. The arrangement seems really solid too.
Chuck Rio's rockin' classic is done for fun, and that's just what happens - fun. Slightly restrained, but somehow that seems to add to the infectiousness. Quite good!
"Wipe Out" seems to work better than you'd expect in such a light arrangement. Precise, fun, and sporting a very original break.
