Power Pop 101

The Rubs could make even the Shoes and the Rubinoos blush with their new album Impossible Dream. Of the 12 songs, the first two include the word “Girl” in their titles, and four others are named for specific girls, “Judy,” “Amy,” “Ruby” and “Emily”. The third track is called “Too Young For Me” and the last is “I Wanted You Tonight”. Not to mention the naked lady on the cover. And they must have taken the tapes back in a time machine to 1978 to do the mix. Over all just a really fun listen, but this title track is sublime.
