Lex Hives

Unlike fellow garage revisionists the White Stripes, the Hives never had any highfalutin art to live up to; the color-coordinated Swedes were here for the lulz. The peaks on their first LP in five years are all goofy id – like "Go Right Ahead," where they cross the Ramones with ELO, then add sax. They lose steam at times, but by the LP's end, their toga party is back pogo'ing and the neighbors are knocking.
