Amy Gore ”In Love”
As leader of garage rock darlings The Gore Gore Girls, Amy Gore wears her classic pop influences well. She sounds like a mix of Karla Kane (Corner Laughers) and Chrissy Hynde (Pretenders) with an sharp romantic wit. “Driving Around” is perfect crusin’ music, a hummable melody that sticks in your head for the whole trip. Continuing with The car theme, “Cadillac” has some neat guitar licks and “Just A Dream” is another memorable single. Amy shows us a softer side on “I’m Addicted” but it doesn’t stay that way, as the love obsessed chorus plays on.

Some great guitar work is heard throughout, especially on “Static” and the blistering riffs of “You Won’t Lead Me On.” Overall a solid debut that should put this former Gore-Gore girl from the garage into mainstream pop success without straying far from her rock roots.
