OINK! is a first-rate collection of Power Pop gems and Geoff Westen's quirky and eclectic layer until it hurts approach to creating music is key to THE PIGS "Wall of Pop" sound.
Each song is like a musical skyscraperbuilt layer upon layer until the pinnacle is firmly fixed in place. You might not hear it all the first time around or the second; but that's what keeps it interesting. Every time you give it a listen you'll hear more of the colors, taste more of the flavors. It just keeps getting better and better.
Westen's lyrics are often deceptively simple love songs dressed up as tongue-in-cheek commentaries on romance. He amuses us with his observations and social commentaries about society todayin other words, the songs are about all of us - what we do and why we do it.
Guitar crunchers like "Saturday Night," "Paradise" and "I'm Sick" will rock your socks off, while the angst-driven rock ballad "Sweetheart" will break your heart. "I Don't Need It" and "Doesn't Anyone" take you on a quick departure to explore the nasty and cold "real-world" out there and pop-tinged tracks like "Oh Girl," and "Heartbreak Street" will stick with you all day long.
