The Undertones - Get What You Need (2003) Retail CD
Continually loved by fans both old and new (weaned on the exaltations from a host of contemporaries), Get What You Need is exactly the invitation it sounds. The punk pop that the Undertones once peddled managed to keep its feel firmly on the ground, steering clear of the less important things in life (social issues, general politick etc) while concentrating on the most important (girls and growing up)--you don't have to look hard to see where Ash got their influences. Thankfully, warmth, humour and urgent pop yearnings are all still in place. "Girl like You" is a gloriously unashamed Beach Boysmore…/Beatles hybrid and "I Need Your Love the Way It Used to Be" is a heroically nostalgic return to form. Of course, the Undertones without Feargal Sharkey is as unthinkable and blasphemous as the Stones without Jagger, but Paul McLoone pulls the band up by their scruffy collars and employs his gruff, urgent vocal to fill the gap and allow this great Irish band to continue where they left off, only with sharper riffs, glorious harmonies and enough attitude to carry it off. Acting their age in songs such as "The Cruellest Thing" keeps things fresh, and the quirky "Winter Sun" is interesting; however when the feedback and riffs return in "Joyland" it's clear that they should never be far away. Get What You Need is a bold effort that succeeds as much as it can. "You thrill me all the time", McLoone implores on "Thrill Me"--and 25 years, on they still manage to do so. --Cortman Virtue
