Reports Run Into The Night

The jangly guitar pop-rock of the Reports takes a Sunday drive down late ’80s, early ’90s highway with rest stops at the Pixies and REM. Instead of coping out and replaying famous guitar pop of yesteryear, the trio have done a fab job of unlocking their creative inspirations into a debut album of interesting pop ditties. The harsher rock-fuelled numbers, “Hesitation” and “Go West,” are still soft enough as not to upset the hangover, and some might even have a hankering for the Replacements. Run Into The Night adequately fills the hunger for guitar-driven pop rock of those carefree days of the early ’90s without making one feel that it is retro rock. (Satellite Transmission)
