Tracklist.

Present Tense would be released in 1979 after the band signed a deal with Elektra Records. This would be the first of three albums recorded with Elektra and the first to not be recorded in the Murphy residence. The album would be recorded in England using 24 tracks instead of the old four. The band did a great job in preserving their stripped-down power pop sound leaning heavily on buzzy guitars and heavily layered vocals. The two songs that receive the most airplay were Tomorrow Night and Too Late. While Shoes were recording this album, The Knack released what would be their monster album, Get the Knack. While the success of this would seem like a good thing for Shoes it actually hurt them in a way. Even though they’ve been playing this style of music for five or six years they were unfortunately thrown into a list of latecomers and known as a band that was just following The Knack’s lead.

The first of Shoes' three Elektra albums, Present Tense is almost a happy accident in ways - not that the band hadn't already shown its particular approach beautifully with earlier efforts, but at a time when major labels were trying to figure out what punk and new wave could provide, Shoes just found a perfect balance.

Consumer Guide Album. Shoes: Present Tense A formalist's delight-the three principals pursue their theme of Sad Love as obsessively as a cavalier writing sonnets to his lady. Their voices are interchangeably breathy, their tempos unflappably moderate, their guitar hooks unfailingly right. And when for a change of pace one of them sounds bitter the effect is as startling as a Johnny Ramone guitar solo.
