^That is a good question. One could argue that in terms of punk bands that tread the power pop line, it really has to do with the band's image or how they were marketed by the label. In general, the pure power pop bands tended to be more polite and didn't play quite as loud and fast. But then you have the New Wave power pop stuff that is often punky in its energy level (i.e. certain albums by people like Elvis Costello or even Joe Jackson). I think the power pop purists would argue that a band crosses the line when they play louder and faster than Big Star did. They want everything to sound the Raspberries (a pretty tame, polished band IMHO) or whatever.

Shoes - Present Tense LP



Shoes' first album on a major label, a bit more sugary and slick compared to their famous "Black Vinyl Shoes" LP. Still a solid album with catchy songs that is well worth grabbing. Found this as a sealed cutout recently for a cheap price and couldn't pass it up.
