Ric Ocasek of the Cars heard it; he produced the last Pink Spiders effort. Super-producer Brendan O’Brien takes over this time out, putting a shine on stand-outs like the Queen-meets-Meatloaf “Falling with Every Step” and lots of Electric Light Orchestra-influenced music.
The E.L.O. sound actually goes deeper than an influence; the band seems to have really patterned themselves after the classic rock hit-makers, right down to their respect for the Beatles with cuts like “Mrs. Ruston.”
Sweat it Out is currently available.
