Shake Some Action review

I had been struggling with what to do about the Shake Some Action record that is officially being released tomorrow (Saturday, 12/23) at Imaginary Liz's birthday party at the Crocodile. I'm conflicted... literally.

I had nothing to do with the recording of the album. So, from that perspective I can listen to it as an a regular listener and appreciate the fact that it is simply a great powerpop album, and likely one of the best to be released in 2006 (although releasing it a week before New Year's Day doesn't give much opportunity for one to appear on the usual "best of" lists).

At the same time, I play in the live band version of Shake Some Action. So, it's hard for me to be completely objective. Of course, the reason I'm playing in the live band version in the first place is I'm a fan of James' tunes. Songs like "Complicated" and "Someone Else's Friend" and "What You Want Me To Do" just rock my world in a Hoodoo Gurus, The La's, You Am I kind of way.

But, now thanks to Erik Gonzalez, I don't have to worry about writing a review. Why, you ask? Because Erik has written a great review that pretty much summarizes my own feelings on the subject over at the Three Imaginary Girls site.
