Well cheer up because Tot Rocket and the Twins will reduce you beyond your wildest dreams. No worries, a tit for Tot and we're on our way (Karen Carpenter?). Here again we have some solid rock spilling over from the central valley of Connecticut, although Tot advertises his address as being Grand Central Station. "Reduced" is a pretty undeniable 1980 anthem, while the "Fun Fades..." is a bit more laborious. All and all though this makes a very strong statement for a band ready to go places. This is evidence of some flash and polish, but once again I have no clue as to where they all ended up. If nothing else, "Reduced" is a very worthy legacy which I expect you will thoroughly enjoy...
