AllMusic Review by

New York's Fluffer has improved so much over the last three years that those who attended this all-female quintet's earliest gigs would never recognize them now. Though on occasion singer Laura Galpin's vocals stray way too far into Heart territory, spoiling things with her Annie Wilson-like shrieking, at other times she sounds like the second coming of Penetration's gifted Pauline Murray. And, on Wreck, the band's clipped, crunching guitars and post-punk dance groove recalls the Buzzcocks' "Moving Away From the Pulsebeat." The B-sides offer similar fare.
