Shake The Sheets (2004)

EW's GRADE
A

Details Release Date: Oct 19, 2004; Lead Performance: Ted Leo and The Pharmacists

The hardest-working man in indie rock — DIY poster boy Leo toured the States no less than five times with his last album — shows up the slackers yet again with his fifth release, Shake the Sheets. Practically every song is a near-perfect amalgam of straight-up melodies and pogoing beats. Let's hope he never takes a vacation.
