The reviews of the new record are finally starting to come in. Here's what you'll read if'n you go here:

Terry Anderson and the Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team - National Champions (CD, Double Naught, Pop/rock)
There are tons upon tons of ultra-creative, ultra-weird bands on the planet. And then every so often a band comes along...that just plays good music. And that's just what Terry Anderson and the Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team provide for their fans. Instead of blowing their listeners away with volume or abusing technology in an attempt to cover up for a lack of talent, Anderson and his bandmates (Dave Bartholomew, Greg Rice, Jack Cornell) seem content to merely provide good, solid, toe-tapping music. As is the case with past releases, National Champions provides good solid 1970s-influenced slightly boogie-infused pop music. Terry's band plays with a solid tight feel...and his slightly loose vocals sometimes recall early Edgar Winter or even Joe Walsh at times. Some really cool cover art this time around on the tri-fold cardboard sleeve. Nice passionate pop cuts include "Goin' or Comin'" and "Feel Right Now." Nice smooth totally entertaining stuff. (Rating: 5)
