The Fleshtones are back with Take a Good Look, a romping revival of happy-go-lucky mayhem. CBGB heyday stalwarts The Fleshtones are the originators of the garage revival still raging in the 21st century. With Take a Good Look, the band has reduced its Super Rock sound down to pure muscle and bone. Fuzzy guitars, vintage organ and cocksure swagger abound as the band re-stakes its claim on early 60s garage. Co-produced by legendary session vet Ivan Julian (Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Matthew Sweet) and the great Jim Diamond, the album seethes with party anthems and head-bopping mod rhythms. Songs like the self-assure 'Jet Set Fleshtones' and the thunderously riffed 'Never Grew Up' make it clear that the Fleshtones are still doing retro better and cooler than anyone on the planet. Hipsters be damned, rock n' roll is a party and The Fleshtones just tapped the keg!

I bought this when it first came out. It's their best since Roman Gods or Hexbreaker. Definitely one of the top albums of 2008. I love these guys!
