Toadies - Rubberneck (1995)

Are you gonna save me?

Can you save me?

You gonna make me happy?

You gonna make me smile?

Tell me Mister Love!

Aggressive, head pounding alt rock with energy enough for thrashing your nightmares. The showcase is Todd Lewis' rowdy vocals etched in mid nineties rock weltanscuung. There are a few outstanding tracks on this album, one of which gained Toadies a very brief spotlight (Possum Kingdom). This is highly listenable for those who feel that sentimentality is a catalyst for brooding or aggressive celebration. This record is angsty. Dig it.
