We gave it an B+

After apprenticeships in the alternative breeding grounds of Athens, Ga., and Minneapolis, singer- songwriter Marlee MacLeod’s spunky debut Drive Too Fast shows she’s learned her lessons well. But while her R.E.M./Replacements influences are apparent on tracks like the jangly ”Everybody Loves Me,” she is more joyful than her forebears. Singing in a barely suppressed chuckle, MacLeod proves that rock works best when reverence is minimal. B+
