Album Review

Turn on your Heart lite. These twin sisters had plenty of help on Messin' with the Boys -- not only did Toto members Steve Lukather, Bobby Kimball, Mike Pocaro and David Paich provide backup, but Mike Baird and Bill Champlain helped out as well. Cherie Currie was a member of grrrl group the Runaways (although Marie was recruited originally) and Messin' with the Boys has a forgettable "Cherry Bomb" remake, along with fairly decent covers from the Raspberries ("Overnight Sensation") Free ("Wishing Well), Batdorf and Rodney "All I Want" and Russ Ballard "Since You've Been Gone." The girls take turns sounding bored or tough, and overproduction mars what was just a passable album to begin with.
