Sweetheart of the Sun
The Bangles
CD ($12.39)

The iconic "girl band" of the '80s reunites as a trio for this retro-riffic spinout that rings anew with the same jangly, sweet, pop-happy vibes that put "Walk Like An Egyptian" and "Hazy Shade Of Winter" onto the charts three decades ago. Sisters Vicki and Susanna Peterson and lead vocalist Susanna Hoff salute their solid rock 'n' roll, singer-songwriter influences (including The Beatles, The Byrds and The Beach Boys) with the tunefully textured "Open My Eyes," "Circles In The Sky," "Under A Cloud" and nine other tasty tracks.
