There's truly something to be said for an album that simply rocks out.

My first exposure to Visqueen was actually not listening to them, it was reading about them. Something intrigued me, and I later found their website, and listened to the sample tracks there. I was hooked instantly.

Visqueen's debut album "King Me" is filled with track after track of infectious power pop songs. They make no pretensions otherwise. They are simply fun to listen to. And why not?

From the simple (if slightly repetitive) refrain of "My House" to the anthem-like quality of "Sailor" to the rich, almost nostalgic sound of "Mrs. Elder," there isn't a song on this album that I don't enjoy for its strong guitar riffs, its strident vocals, and its rock-your-socks-off nature.

Though the vocals are perfect and crystal-clear, the lyrics themselves can get repetitive and are a bit silly at times ("We're mutual like Omaha" comes flashing to mind). However, to be perfectly honest, this isn't music one listens to for clever, meaningful lyrics. This is head-bopping rock music, meant to be enjoyed for what it is.

And any time I want to rock out for a little while, enjoy it I do!
