Album Review: The Veronicas - "The Veronicas" (Score: 8/10)

veronicas-self-titled-album-coverAustralian sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso come back strong after a seven-year hiatus, and in those years they have shed their teen pop beginnings and matured into soon-to-be pop icons. Older fans of the Veronicas will appreciate the girls maintaining their rock roots, while pure pop tunes may snag the duo a few new fans. Despite cheesy lyrics that suggest a girl’s open diary, songs like “Did You Miss Me?” and “More Like Me” prove these girls still have fight in them. Standouts include the dancey “If You Love Someone” and the haunting ballad “You Ruin Me.” – Siri Svay
