Blonder and Blonder Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
While the band has changed significantly since their debut, the Muffs' second album, Blonder and Blonder, sounds nearly identical to their first. It's all a brightly colored collection of fuzzed-out guitars, Kim Shattuck's screaming pop melodies, and punk rhythms, delivered with just the right touch of abandon and just the right amount of polish. Even though the band is a long-time friend of Green Day's, the repetition of the formula hits a little too close for comfort. Shattuck's songs aren't quite as strong as Billie Joe's, yet her hooks catch hold often enough to make Blonder and Blonder enjoyable for most fans of punk-pop.
