Kiss & Tell (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jul 27, 2004; Lead Performance: Sahara Hotnights

Like many of their fellow Swede bands, these four women look to rock's past -- in their case, to the power-pop guitars and boisterous shouted choruses of vintage glam and new wave -- but they're also the least self-conscious of the bunch. On their first major-label American release, they're in search of good times, occasionally faithful boyfriends, and junk-food hooks, and they find them in unabashed radio rock like ''Walk on the Wire'' and the single ''Hot Night Crash.'' All in just 37 minutes.
