Less reform-school than the three excellent Gore Gore Girls albums Detroit's garage-soul queen made in the '00s were, In Love revolves around obsessive infatuation, long-distance relationships, tough gals yearning for tough guys. But also cars: "Drivin' Around" (with no particular place to go), "Cadillac," summer romance "at the drive-in over a beer." Motor City suburbs at dusk, with the radio blasting The Pretenders and Dee Dee Sharp. "Fine Without You" takes this job and shoves it; "Diana" teases you into thinking it's sung to a girl. In the Shocking Blue cover closer, things turn trippy.
