On the album they're exploring the darker sides of living in Los Angeles. The atmospheric and artful compositions of the band can be heard in their rocking and artful songs. The vocalist Martha Davis brings some songs to life with her beautiful voice. Celia" and "Kix" are two excellent crafted songs, but it's getting even better when you'll hear "Closets and Bullets". The album exudes the mood of excitement and danger of late Los Angeles at night. Since the formation of The Motels they've been touring in different line-ups.

I think this is a great album that draws on the influence of Elvis Costello when not exploring its own way. The use of saxophone is well done and outside of the E Street Band is not that common. I'm a bit reminded of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who would come almost a decade later, but with a female vocal. And a great vocalist Martha Davis is indeed.
