I admit I’m probably a sucker for dance rock but I still think The Virgins are legitimately good. Although I’m a year late hearing about their self-titled record, I’m glad I did. The whole album is absolutely worth listening to but, if I’m picking out some highlights, don’t you dare miss “Rich Girls”, “Fernando Pando”, or “One Week of Danger”.
The production is polished and the licks are sharp, sure, but let’s not miss the point: this set is gonna make people get up and dance. There’s no way I’m missing that. I just want to entertain the delusion that I’m on to these guys before anybody else.
THE VERDICT: Oh, absolutely.
