Sometimes first impressions aren't to be trusted. This is true enough for Aussie outfit Rocket Science. On the face of it, a tantalising prospect with a sound pitched halfway between the Doors' organ-led drowsy rock and The Stranglers' punk attitude and canny songwriting. That's certainly the case with singles 'Being Followed' and 'One Robot': the former a perfect showcase for frontman Roman Tucker's twitchy, epileptic vocals, the second a wonderfully tight song with an excellent circular rhythm to it. The rest is a great disappointment with the band recalling Boomtown Rats' B-sides on the short songs whilst the more drawn out affairs are stiflingly repetitive. Only one more track warrants saving and that is 'Going Away'; its sparse arrangements indicating that - given time - they could yet be a Comsat Angels for the modern age. Certainly that would be a better direction to take than their current and confusing half garage-punk/half-new wave ideas.
