An obvious but efficient and satisfying continuation of The Coathangers progression from raw, silly garage punk to a more focused blend of punk and indie rock; here straying a further toward the latter with a clear jump in production. As with most of their discography the thing they shine with is track variation and album pacing. Larceny and Old Lace has aggressive punk tracks like Hurricane and Jaybird, softer rock tracks in Tobacco Rd and Go Away and plenty of other tracks right in between; it really doesn't stale. Also in Coathangers fashion the album is short with 11 tracks in 30 minutes making it easy to replay over and over again thanks to the interplay between two good punk rock vocalists and fun, surfy garage rock guitars. The only thing lacking here is the true standout classic tracks found their self-titled and later releases.
