Like last year’s Urban Desire, the aptly titled . . . And I Mean It! finds veteran rocker Ravan making logical connections between new wave and a variety of 60s genres, most notably Motown and the Phil Spector “girl groups.” The album does contain its share of blemishes. But the bulk of the tracks winningly combine soul, lust and exuberance; and the best entry, Joe Droukas’s “Junkman,” may well be remembered as a bona fide classic. Trading perfectly attuned vocals with Ian Hunter on this ideal companion to Springsteen’s “New York City Serenade,” Ravan movingly transports us to a place where reality begins and ends with romantic desire and rock and roll. If you ask me, that’s a damn good place to be.
