The Bangles The Real World 12″

A few people I know rave about the BANGLES, but I just don’t understand why. Some of their originals do have a ’60s feel (“Want You” and “Mary Street” on this EP), but most are examples of overproduced new wave pablum Á  la GO-GO’S. Even their LA-DE-DA’S cover (“How Is the Air Up There?”) is lame.
