We gave it a B+

Working with metal producer Bob Rock, Veruca Salt tries to toughen up and stumbles across something even more exciting: the missing link between glum alt-rock and the Bangles, heard in love-ensnared guitar pop like ”Sound of the Bell” and ”Loneliness Is Worse.” Some weak material drags Eight Arms to Hold You, but the way Louise Post and Nina Gordon joyously pounce on the title phrase of ”Awesome” is pretty awesome indeed.
