The Original Sins "Move" 1992

Doubtlessly aided by R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck as producer on Move, the group left psychedelia behind for a poppier sound (think Paul Revere and the Raiders and the Knickerbockers) and a giddy, upbeat mood which J.T. acknowledges (by way of a possible explanation) in the album-opening "She's on My Side." In a masterful display of greatness, the two-dozen three-minute tracks (all J.T. originals!) vary the emotional and stylistic temperature more than ever: "Devil's Music," "It's a Good Life" and "Like an Animal" (like roughly half of the songs) churn and burn with classic fervor, while "Getting the Feeling" hits a Rascally soul groove, "Move" sounds a lot like Steppenwolf, "I Never Dreamed" is a shockingly quiet ballad and the winsome "I Surrender" and "Not Today" are essentially folk-rock. Move does just that, and in a bunch of perfectly good directions. If the Sins can try out new old things without blowing their cool, more power to 'em. - trouserpressThe Original Sins never made a bad album; in fact, all the ones they made are incredible, give or take a few fused amps. JT has the astonishing capacity of distilling the essence of great rawk and pop music and, out of it, make little sonic masterpieces of garage/punk/bubblegum/acid/pop/psychedelia. Sometimes they were more psychotic than the Sonics and other times sweeter than the Hollies, but they always remained true and honest to their musical mission of bringing back to screaming life the wonderful sounds of the sixties and early seventies and infusing them with new vigor and energy. But don't expect to find here any repressed, modest sounds or soft, sorrowful ballads. Theirs is A-tomic party music. Careening geetars, grinding organs, avalanching drums, pulsating basses, yowling incantations... man, this is garage punk at its primeval prime. - By "greymouser" (Tartaros)
