The Raspberries: Raspberries
Metal Mike Saunders, Rolling Stone, 6 July 1972
RASPBERRIES opens with the finest burst of lightweight English rock I've heard all year, a raunchy 16-bar guitar intro, and followed by a verse that sounds like a cross between Reflections Of My Mind and early Badfinger. The rest of the album is just as ephemeral, and just as good.
