Like Listening to a David Lynch movie

Absolutely captivating menacing, minor key, 50s inspired guitar fuzz attack. An excellent, promising debut.

More Rock than Lust

Steve23

More of a rock sound than Lust Lust Lust but equally good.

Road music

I really like this album. Yep every song is extremely similar, but it's over before you know it, and you're gonna want to play it again. Great driving tunes.

Good, not great

KfuMike

Good music, but unfortunately they don't stray very far from the style of a 60's Jesus and Mary Chain. Download the first song and you've pretty much downloaded them all. However....if eMusic gets 'Pretty in Black', check that one out, one of the best of '05 - a much wider range of styles and sounds with amazing harmonies and song writing.

A Good Debut

lionel

If you like The Jesus & Mary Chain and would like to hear some more of that familiar driven guitar playing coupled with deadpan vocals over a wail of feedback, then get this. This, their first album, is decent if somewhat derivative. They do get much better on their later albums (Unfortunately not available on Emusic as yet).

You heard them - WHIP THIS ON

neuroiffic

Energetic, dark, witty...makes you glad you're alive in this century to be able to hear a combination of rock'n'roll of the'60s with today's modern rock. Bands that make use of all their influences and add their own flair can never go wrong; the Raveonettes amazingly do it in songs that are only 2 or 3 minutes long. Their tunes are fast paced and short-lived, but they stick in your head for weeks. I recommend "Whip It On" to anyone that simply likes music; trust me, if you've never heard them, download any song, they're all great, or try "Veronica Fever" which is the song that if I had to choose one, is my favorite.

Six Degrees of Is This It?

By Michelangelo Matos, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Danish duo the Raveonettes strike a slick pose on their debut EP, Whip It On. It’s a slinky post-punk mix recorded entirely in B-flat minor while each song thrives on only three chords. Minimalist and stylish, Whip It On doesn’t go for the grandiosity of the Strokes and the White Stripes. The Raveonettes are ambitious in their own way, and it works brilliantly. Debut single “Attack of the Ghost Riders” glides with an extraterrestrial flair, Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner’s wispy vocals surfing along momentous percussion. The high-speed garage-y “Do You Believe Her” shimmies with a darker posture, but that’s exactly what the Raveonettes are going for. Whip It On is basically a soundtrack album, a film noir storybook of eight solid tracks blazing with attitude. “Cops on Our Tail” is nonchalant in a vexed moment, but never cavalier. Whip It On is a decent look at what the Raveonettes are capable of, certainly an honest effort, but more impressive in the sense that they’re rock & roll antagonists. – MacKenzie Wilson
