6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 22nd February 2015
Smudge are an Australian band led by Evan Dando cohort and songwriter extraordinaire, Tom Morgan and feature the drumming skills of Alison Galloway who was the inspiration for The Lemonheads "Alison's Starting To Happen". "Real McCoy, Wrong Sinatra" was their fourth and final album and was originally released in 1998. "Hot Potato" and "Breadcrumb Trail" which features Galloway on lead vocals, are among the best this album has to offer and "Jo Jo and the Guts" has a catchy chorus. "I Was Born To Change The World" ends the album with a bit more punch than the rest of it's contents. In the Smudge cannon it's not as good as their classic debut, "Manilow" and most of the songs aren't as good as the ones on the legion of singles and EPs they've released. They may have been running out of steam by this point. However, it still sounds like Smudge and that's worth something.
