The album features upbeat, jangling songs with the crashing chime and fuzz of bands such a Razorcuts, Jasmine Minks, McCarthy and the Shop Assistants. But Real Number's art transcends their influences, with a confident swagger and bouncing, New Wave bass lines. The layered guitars are distinctive, vibrant and upfront. The lyrics reflect a youthful perspective and a quirky intelligence. Sweet hooks abound, and the choruses invite singing along. And by the way, this may be one of the more danceable C86-style bands I've heard. I'm on my third play of this record today -- it is a keeper.
