THE BROTHERS STEVE -Dose- CDBIG STIR
t's an album of twists and turns and surprises, delights and deception: lead track “Get On Up” opens with an almost lullaby-like acapella harmony passage before exploding into a boisterous, supercharged call to arms for creatures of the night. The closing “Better Get Ready To Go” is cut from the same glam-anthemic cloth, taking unbridled joy in exhorting the listener to “get it on, squeaky Kong,” and “Just put Geppetto to the meadow and let’s get out of here,” it's emblematic of a record that revels unironically in the fundamental absurdity of rock and roll. “We're saying things that may seem to make no sense at all, but we're sincerely convinced of them!” enthuses Whalen.
