Just when you fear that Protein Shake might be another Eheads wannabe, the band surprises us with their self-titled debut that, really, isn’t too bad. We were bracing for the usual pop-rock-alt fare but Protein Shake serves ’70s classic rock influenced music instead. The only gripe: It’s such a long record! After “Ganyan” and “Shake Yer Booty”—the record’s seeming climax—Protein Shake just seems to roll on and on. There is a reason “Ganyan” is the single being promoted—it is easily the catchiest, daling dalhin song on the record.
