Whip It On (2002)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Nov 19, 2002; Lead Performance: The Raveonettes; Genre: Rock

This Danish duo isn't the first act to record an album in just one key, with three chords per song, max -- just the first to do it deliberately, probably. But hey, whatever works: Their intriguing combo of cranky fuzz and plaintive melody is as easily taken for a salute to '60s transistor-radio pop as for Jesus and Mary Chain worship.
