It's a good balance that suits a band that's been around long enough to do exactly what it wants, and bless the Kittens for sounding as inspired and lovely as ever. Opening track "Light," with its steady crunch, featuring guest piano from "the young fabulous Derek Brown" and Meade's ever wonderful singing, is all the assurance a longtime fan needs that they haven't lost it, while also sounding good enough to win over new listeners

The All American by the Chainsaw Kittens marks their first release in four years. For some, the wait has been far too long. Amazingly enough the Kittens have gone unoticed by the mainstream, although huge successes critically and through their dedicated fan base. The All American is a remarkable album and truly shows the talent and originality of the Norman, Oklahoma based band. The album opens up with "Light", an upbeat pop little number. Unfortunately, 'The All American' seems more like a collection of demos than a REAL album. Whereas their 1996 spectacular self-titled release was one of the best albums of the 90's, 'The All American' left me shockingly disappointed after the first listen. Most notably, 'The All American' is lacking in its production. The songs here sound like they were recorded in one take. This is odd considering the Chainsaws had four years to get it right.

The Chainsaw Kittens were a part of the American alternative rock scene, drawing from pop, glam rock, punk, New Wave and British Invasion music. Their lyrics tackled such varied topics as religion, the Stonewall Riots, Federico Fellini, Oklahoma, Erik Menendez, and Oscar Wilde. Based in Norman, Oklahoma, the band was active from 1989 to 2000. The group underwent several personnel changes, but always maintained the presence of principal singer/songwriter Tyson Meade.

The fifth album by this Oklahoma band is steady, mid-tempo, low-budget indie rock with new wave synths, occasional Wire riffs, glam textures, lots of piano flourishes and a good sense of humour. For examples of the latter, check out the track "Gleaming Soft White Teens," apparently about models on acid, or the smacked-out double-cover of "We Got the Beat/Nightclubbing. Tyson Meade's warble-y tenor doesn't always work, particularly in falsetto, and the piano is a tad over-used (and sometimes over '70s), but this is overall a successful and novel album
