Natural Child's 1971 is an attitude-heavy set of rock tunes that emulate everything from power pop to the kind of classic rock they play on the AM band. Stylistically, this LP is all over the place, which is kind of surprising since the 7'' EP I reviewed of theirs a while back has a pretty consistent blend of punk and garage rock. What is consistent here is the personality of this record, which is dirty, horny, stoned, and brutally honest. There's something to be said for that. At least Natural Child isn't hiding its true self. Most people hide these traits. This band flaunts them. Maybe this music will be your opportunity to embrace them.
