The Riverdales follow up last year's "Invasion USA" with "Tarantula". Thirty minutes of their heaviest, yet catchiest, songs to date. Initially meant to be part of "Invasion USA," these tunes stood out on their own enough to be their own beast. In these parts, Riverdales-Storm The Streets, is considered a cultish, godlike slab. Tarantula carries on with the great Foster/Schafer songwriting team. As well as being complimented with the Justin Perkins production. "12 to the Moon" can be considered a classic weeks before release date. And if you wanna talk up the Ramones reference, well then we can clock in with this era's "Baby Sitter/Bonzo/Something to Believe In" via "Soultaker". I am comfortable saying that. LP is packaged in a hefty gatefold & CD sports the infamous digipak.
