The Forgotten 45s make real raw garage rock on the psychedelic rush titled “In Case You Forgot”. Lyrics add to the sense of other-worldliness that permeates the album for they possess a playful poetry to them. Guitars are drenched in wonderful fuzz and distortion while they are woven together to create a warm inviting sound. Rhythms possess an infectious quality to them for the Forgotten 45s refuse to slow down with wonderful blurs rushes of percussion. A driving rhythm anchors the album for these are songs that deserve to be blasted at the highest possible volume. Stylistically, the Forgotten 45s tap into a classic rock sound, one that rests at the heart of the album.
Setting the tone for the album is the fantastic opener “Fly on the Wall”. Everything comes together nicely from the expressive percussion work to the classic cool of the guitars. With a true sense of urgency is the infinitely catchy “Otherwise”. A little western twang is woven into the tenderness of “Make You Mine” which sounds like a long-lost 80s am pop hit. The ambitious and mellowed attitude of “Runaway” rests at the very heart of the album. By far the highlight of the album is the gorgeous work of “By the Way” whose jerky indie pop jangle is an absolute delight. Reflective in nature is the album closer, the meditation of “Lunar Land”.
Optimism pours out of the Forgotten 45s sun-drenched sound of “In Case You Forgot”.
