3.5 greatDeadwing2112 | April 28th 20

Stands for Decibels is the debut release by power pop band, the dB's. The recording of the album is very much in the vein of typical early 80s engineering of the sound a bit thin at times however the dB's were all about guitars and guitars, mercifully leaving out synthesizers. The songwriting duo of Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey provides sharp, quick lyrics supported by instrumentation that would later serve as a foundation for Southern jangle. In particular, I'm In Love is a terrific Stamey penned power pop ballad.
