The Whigs began auspiciously with 2005's great, thunderstruck Give 'Em All a Big Fat Lip, and if the Athens, Georgia, trio hasn't managed to raise their profile too much since that promising beginning, it's not because they haven't delivered the goods. They have, consistently. Now on their fourth album, Enjoy the Company, the Whigs have settled into the role of reliable Southern garage-rock makers, replacing their youthful exuberance with assured and calculated songcraft. The Whigs certainly aren't reinventing the wheel, but when "wheel" means loud drums and fuzzy guitars and sing-along lyrics, then no need to fix what ain't broke. NED LANNAMANN
