Tremendous Efforts Review

by Tim Sheridan

On their second long-player, the Sadies further explore their signature stew of surf, soul, and country. If it weren't for the wit and punch of tunes like "The Creepy Butler" and "Pass the Chutney," this might all seem like smart-assed referencing. But there's real gusto in their delivery and they even pull off a cover of "Wearin' That Loved on Look," immortalized by Elvis in his '69 comeback album. A twangy feast.
