Beat Music, the Spongetones' debut album, features some of their finest music, drawing heavily on the Beatles, Dave Clark Five, and Hollies without shame. And while this is certainly derivative stuff, rarely is a nostalgia trip so well executed and enjoyable. Beat Music and its follow-up, Torn Apart, have been combined on a single disc, Beat & Torn, released on Black Vinyl Records.
