The Raveonettes- Lust Lust Lust

Stripped down from a five piece to a two piece. The scuzzy throwback 50's garage punk of the Raveonettes is streamlined into what is fast approaching the top spot as my favorite album ever. "Lust Lust Lust" sounds like Sonic Youth playing songs written by an oversexed Buddy Holly with Joy Division's recording engineer making sure it gets on tape (in non-pitchfork-esque terms, really really really distorted 50's rock and roll + sex + 80's Post-punk melancholy).

I can't say how much i love this album, every song is gem, although stand-outs "Dead Sound", "Black Satin", "Blush" and "You Want the Candy" get the most plays on my I-pod.
