    Kate Pierson isn't much younger than my mom, but damn if they haven't put out a really good album.

    It's like a fresh, updated "Wild Planet", produced by Steve Osborne, who produced New order's "Get Ready". Not a whole lot for the "Cosmic Thing" fans, but it is really great, fun stuff.

    At first listen, given the lyrics on some of the songs, I closed my eyes and all I could picture was 60-somethings dressed in retro-esque nu-wave fashion at a swingers party tossing keys into fishbowls, playing Win-Lose or Draw and Charades, drinking cocktails and pretending they were still hip and havent aged at all. Almost like listening to a twisted updated version of Cocoon.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the B52's. I just felt that this album wasnt so much of artistic growth, but more of the same. I much prefer Cosmic Thing and I think they should have went in a different direction

    I've listened to it three times and not developed an affinity for any of the songs.
