Lucky (1996)

EW's GRADE
B-

Details Lead Performance: The Goops; Genre: Rock

Lucky is more proficient punk revisionism, this time from Manhattan's Goops, who focus on exhuming Blondie-era sounds. Although weighted down by its heard-it-all-before dearth of inspiration, this plucky debut, with its insistent wedding of melody and spunk, is held (just barely) aloft by sheer verve.
