Pretenders - Loose Screw (2003) Retail CD
It is unlikely that anybody will press "Play" on Loose Screw anticipating an audacious shift in direction for the Pretenders: Chrissie Hynde hasn't changed so much as her hairstyle since 1977. However, while Loose Screw is dominated, like all other Pretenders recordings, by Hynde's instantly recognisable drawl, it does dare to throw a few new shapes. These are mostly in the form of a dominant but never quite overpowering reggae influence; the result, while never quite as catastrophic as anything perpetrated by UB40, falls some way short of emulating the muscular menace the Clash projected on Londonmore… Calling. Possibly by way of reassurance, Loose Screw is topped and tailed by songs whose strength is their familiarity. Opening track "Lie to Me" is rambunctious new wave rock & roll, an older and angrier companion piece to "Back on the Chain Gang" or "Middle of the Road"; the album's finale, "I Wish You Love", is a gorgeous ballad displaying Hynde's under-utilised abilities as a torch singer, much as "2000 Miles" once did. --Andrew Mueller
