"I've now seen you guys in LA, OC, and now NYC, and you never disappoint...awesome show tonight @thesounds!"

"#generationalanthems thank you @thesounds. every time they come through they kill like no one else."

"how maja stomps the stage in those ass kickin' heels is beyond me. #iwearchucks"

If that sampling of twitterverse comments give you any indication as to how perfectly prodigious The Sounds were at Roseland last night, then I probably don't need to go on with an extended review. But alas, there's still much to express, and let it out, I shall.

Over the course of a totally titillating 90 minutes, Sweden's own, The Sounds, stomped, strummed and shimmied through a massive twenty song repertoire, which spanned everything from their early work through their latest album, Crossing the Rubicon.

With an energetic command of both the stage and the crowd, lead vocalist, Maja Ivarsson kept everyone's hands in the air, as no inch of the floor was left untouched. From showcasing her glam gams, to persuading audience participation with an earnest, "Where my bitches at?", it's evident that as the singer AND The Sounds progress, their maturity as an established and well-respected new-wave outfit has never been more profound.
