ROCKWiRED SOUND BiTE: THE PRETENDERS

https://www.rockwired.com/SoundBiteThePretenders.jpg

https://www.rockwired.com/HateForSale.jpghttps://www.rockwired.com/CapitalTTimes.jpghe release of the eleventh album to bear the name PRETENDERS was preceded by the release of a series of cleverly produced music videos for each song in lieu of a tour with JOURNEY that ended being canceled because of COVID-19. So when the album was finally released last week, there was no reason for HATE FOR SALE to come off sounding like a surprise and a revelation. You see, since the release of 1994's THE LAST OF THE INDEPENDENTS and (the even better) VIVA EL AMOR in 1999, CHRISSIE HYNDE hasn't managed to keep things as raw and invigorating as anything you heard on the band's eponymously titled 1980 album with the exception of her 2014 solo album STOCKHOLM. With HATE FOR SALE, HYNDE reunites with original drummer MARTIN CHAMBERS and welcomes bassist NICK WILKINSON and guitarist JAMES WALBOURNE who shares co-writing with HYNDE on all ten tracks. The forementioned surprise is the rambunctiousness and snarl of the material which  comes out in full force on the punkish title track, the cracking rock-a-billy of I DIDN'T WANNA BE THIS LONELY, and the BLONDIE-esque bop of TURF ACCOUNTANT DADDY. Of course what good is a PRETENDERS album if HYNDE can't show off a gentle side as she does on the R&B ballad YOU CAN"T HURT FOOL but her balladry goes s step further with torchy, piano led CRYING IN PUBLIC which eschews equality between the sexes and gets lost in the hopeless emotionalism and tears that go along with being a woman. Damn, I wish I bought this thing on vinyl!
