Hello. I spent nearly 10 years selling on that other site (you can check my feedback there; It's under the same ID as this one; over 3200 positives, 99.7%). But I thought I'd give this new site a try.
I'm just getting started here, so please excuse the amateur appearance. I'll have the place looking better shortly.

The Donnas: Brett Anderson (vocals, piano); Allison Robertson (guitar, background vocals); Maya Ford (bass guitar, background vocals); Torry Castellano (drums, percussion, background vocals).
Recording information: Conway Studios, Los Angeles, California (2004).
Though the Donnas' sound bears elements of punk (they did, after all, start out on Lookout Records, original home of Green Day) and garage rock, they've largely eschewed the trappings of either since the very beginning. As with their previous five records, GOLD MEDAL is simply a straight-up, no-frills rock & roll album, owing as much to the Runaways as it does to the Ramones. The Donnas have come off as tough girls since the beginning, and they don't soften their sound a bit here. Biting, primal guitar hooks, snarling vocals, and thundering, martial drums rage from start to finish, full of grit and fire, but streamlined to the bare essentials by Chris Lord-Alge's high-efficiency production. By refusing to bow to the genre specifications of pop-punk, alt-rock, or anything else, the Donnas craft a timeless edifice of rock & roll fury on GOLD MEDAL that's both eminently accessible and undeniably powerful.
[G]lossy, commercial punk....They will always know how to rule. - 4 out of 5
4 stars out of 5 - '70s power-pop pastiche meets revved-up sugar-rush melodies, cynical teen-romance lyrics and knowingly dumb sexual innuendo.
4 stars out of 5 - [H]itting a satisfying spot between FM rock and punk pop. The best moments, though, are when the hooks are backed up by deliciously barbed lyrics...
[With] a good number of charming, old-school-rock nuggets...The Donnas are now a likable, proficient band. - Grade: B
[Their] maturity plays out in the guitar work of Allison Robertson. The former Donna R subtly flexes her chops, seduced by her latent virtuosity....[With a] delicate balance of spunk and punk. - Grade: B
3 1/2 stars out of 5 - [A] full album of hard rockin', bird-flipping tunes....[They] have tapped into an emotional well full of more bile than anyone could have expected.
USED, but in great condition. NO scratches and NO signs of abuse or misuse.
