Album Review

Zolar X – “X Marks The Spot” – [Alternative Tentacles]

Max Level   2/24/2011   12-inch, A Library

Hard-edged power pop, basically. Zolar X’s “debut” album a few years ago was fantastic, but it was actually recordings from a couple of decades ago. This is their 2007 comeback album, full of fresh, rockin’ material. To get full enjoyment from Zolar X’s music, you have to be willing to buy their story about being Plutonians from outer space and all that. So just go along with it and you’ll be glad you did. “Plutonian Marmalade” could totally be one of those great melodic Ramones songs (well OK, the lyrics would have to be different, but you know what I mean.) Nothing wrong with this.
