After the retread of its self-titled second album and the acoustic detour of Howl, BRMC returns to form with Baby 81. Although the band doesn’t move away from the sonic template it’s become known for, this San Francisco psych-rock three-piece proves once again why it is one of the underrated singles bands of the last 10 years with several more top-notch hits on this one, including the barnstorming, political first cut “Weapon of Choice.” As on previous records, BRMC also succeeds when it turns the volume down. Centerpiece “All You Do is Talk” is easily its best ballad and shows a group that many considered on the wane has a lot of fire left in the furnace.
