The last time I heard a track from Exene Cervenka was on the Punk O Rama 6 CD which she guest vocaled on the Pennywise track. When I heard she was releasing another CD by another band on Nitro known as the Original Sinners I dug up my old 'X' cd's and remembered exactly what got me into music.

I wouldn't exactly consider this album as raw as you'd expect from a member of 'X' and 2 ex-Distillers. The CD starts of with a fast paced drum beat which you would expect from the lineup of this band then breaks into harmonic vocals from Exene which flow just about perfectly. Some of the high points on this record are Who's Laughin' Now, Birds & Bees, and Whiskey For Supper.

If you are a fan of 'X' or 'The Distillers' this is a must have, if you enjoy good music fueled by hard lyrics, I would suggest picking this up.
