Reviews & Opinions

IRA ROBBINS, TROUSER PRESS: New Guitars in Town starts off with a Spectoresque version of Sonny Bono's "Laugh at Me" (also recorded by Mott the Hoople) and gets better from there. Rather than a flashy collection of solos as the title suggests, the two stringleaders show off their singing and songwriting more than guitar pyrotechnics, which remain decidedly in the background. All in all, a delicious collection of rollicking pop-rock, played with spit and spirit."
