The Rockwells are a breath of fresh air with this tour de force of a full length. “Place & Time” offers the listener thirteen dance your pants off tunes with that ability to keep you interested beyond shaking your ass. And to those of us who aren’t wearing pants we got at the junior miss section of Fashion Bug, Rockwells is an intimate album that has plenty to offer a more mature taste.
The first shock I got from Rockwells was “She’s Already Gone” an anthem to those restless folks who just won’t be held down. Knot of Tension another ass-shaking fanatic song which I just couldn’t seem to turn off the chorus I felt like I was being sucked into a pop filled black hole. Over the course of these thirteen tracks, The Rockwells keep you hooked from start to finish with each song offering something original yet familiar and agreeable. This quartet has really shit a winner here for one of the best true pop albums I’ve heard in a long time so keep on shakin’ sweet momma keep on shakin’ because that’s all we can do to combat The Rockwells musical tractor beam.
I give it a 8.9/10
