RPM
Irrational Anthem (7940 Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Ballsy, anti-corporate rock that defeats the system by fitting in, the in-your-face, pull-no-punches attitude of RPM, fronted by a hot, sassy female rocker. From the opener of "Goddamnit", a catchy, hook-filled song that would be all over the airwaves if it weren't for its anti-religion, fuck-the-establishment content. Through electro-infused pop-rock of "Girl Next Door", and the guitar-charged, sugary sweet impact of "If I Had A Rock Band", RPM delivers a lyrically engaging, vocally strong, and hooks-a-plenty album of modern pop-rock that features several crossover hits if only radio would take notice. And, as much as I wanted to hate this record for its sleek, stylish polish, it was too infectious, and grew on me far too much to ignore. It thus found it's way into my CD player for a good amount of time. I'll give it a B.
