The Love Language's latest, Ruby Red, is an explosive pop record that culls from everything that is great about rock music—British Invasion, '60s garage, Byrds-eye country, all wrapped in a warm Spector blanky. It's a far cry from frontman Stuart McLamb's earlier TLL recordings, whose charms were indebted to his ramshackle approach. Some of that innocence may be lost, but this more fully formed version of the Love Language is just as fun. Maybe more. With McLamb, you can be pretty sure the songs will always be strong; now it's just a matter of which form they'll take on. If Ruby Red is any indication, the Love Language is moving in the right direction. MARK LORE
