Album Review
Reviewed 2005-07-16 
Really good garage rock, a little too late for their fifteen minutes
of fame. The Sights combine homegrown Nuggetsy garage rock, rhythm and blues, and '60's British pop. Expect the huge organ sound, bluesy swagger, occasionally bouncey guitar, phased vocals, and comical musical hall piano. So yes, they sound a hell of a lot like the Small Faces, but who cares, the Small Faces were a great band. Good vocals, varied songs, and nice production. Stand-out tracks: 9,3,4,7,8

1. huge organ, bluesy swaggery, reverberant vocals
2. dark, intense, stomping chorus, Brit-poppy refrain
==> 3. so totally and wonderfully The Small Faces
==> 4. R&B feel, bouncey guitar and organ (through a Leslie speaker?)
5. Kinksy music hall feel
6. Creamsy blues rock
==> 7. folky, acoustic guitar and silly piano then rocks
==> 8. psychedelic, effected, so British
==> 9. handclappy, stomping, hoarse R&B becomes '60's pop
10. deep bass groove, Nuggetsy vocals, swaggering
11. bouncey, electric piano, phased vocals, dreamy Small Faces
12. two songs on this track: cool organ noodling gives way to heavy rock and “Stay with Me”, a Faces cover
