SnowLeopards - Debut

The debut CD for the SnowLeopards, aptly titled Debut, is very close to being just a generic piece of power-pop. What separates it from the rest of the pack is a retro vibe that permeates throughout the album, especially on "I'm on Fire" and "Hipmatize Me" (which may be one of the worst names for a song I've heard all year). With female vocals also, Debut isn't going to win the SnowLeopards the amount of fame that a debut such as that of the Arctic Monkeys garnered, but it could wind up being either a good guilty pleasure or a building block to successful second album - would that be named 2?
