Album Review

And a Hip Kitty Shall Lead Them

Lara Hope and the Ark Tones - Love You To Life

As all originals are credited to Lara and the group, it's to their collective distinction that these songs be cheered as bouncing with an ebullience that grips and a novelty that intrigues. Bits of the old and beloved are employed with tart uniqueness toward common, heel-kicking cause. Reliably rocky, ingratiatingly forward rushing, and clever in a saucy manner always meriting salute.

Recommended "I'm the One," "Love You To Life," "Hotel Yorba," "Fast, Cheap, Or Well Done," "Dr. Bartender," "'Til the Well Runs Dry"
