Just when you thought that Big Star and the Flamin' Groovies had said most of what needed saying in the vein of British-flavored '70s and '80s power pop, along came the Spongetones to add some unique wrinkles of their own. Their 2005 album Number 9 evokes, by turns, elements of '60s British beat and American sunshine pop, most of it played with a wattage level and attack closer in spirit to the top garage bands of the period [...] the singing is powerful, the melodies memorable, and the attack on their instruments is pretty compelling.
