"Saved My Life"

by The Greatest Hits

One can feel how deeply in love this band is with rock-n-roll. Citing influences from all over the map, including Bowie, Chuck Berry, and Hanoi Rocks (!?), they literally ooze enthusiasm. It would be no surprise if these guys sweat glitter glue.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
(taken from THE BIG TAKEOVER)

It goes without saying that power pop bands that ape the BEATLES, BIG STAR and the KINKS are a dime-a-dozen – make that dozens. It helps people forget that there was a wave of power popsters in the late 70s and very early 80s that took pages more from a more aggressive book, borrowing elements from glam rock and looking beyond the Beatles to the artists that inspired the Fab Four to pick up the pop hooks. That kind of power pop is making a comeback, and the hardworking kids in the GREATEST HITS are at the forefront of the movement with their second LP Saved My Life. The Seattle quintet’s punk-infused (but nowhere near dominated) sugar rush has more in common with, say, the REAL KIDS or the BOYS than JELLYFISH or the Big Deal roster. For personable frontguy NILS FOREVER and his crew, SWEET, EDDIE COCHRAN, the BEACH BOYS,HEARTBREAKERS and girl groups lead the hit parade as often as power pop’s Liverpudlian forefathers. This isn’t to say that the Hits traffic in influence-peddling – the band simply engages in tough, peppy singalongs like “Gateway LUV,” “Ghost Town” and “If Rock Hadn’t Saved Me” with the joie de vivre of a group not plowing overfarmed fields. Power pop used to mean rock & roll, after all, and the Greatest Hits remember and celebrate it. - Michael Toland
