Miss Black America - Beautiful Velocity/All I Want is Out (R*E*P*E*A*T)

Reviewed in the Cambridge Evening News by David Williams

This double A-side clearly displays the shift in style that has taken place in MBA since a major lineup reshuffle.

All I Want Is Out is the last song the original members wrote together and comes across as a well crafted, laid back slice of indie. Beautiful Velocity meanwhile, which has been put together with the help of new recruits, is a faster, punkier beast but lacks the same impact. Just a blip or a sign of things to come? We shall see. DW
