The 22-20s may claim they're not rooted in the blues, but it takes roughly one minute's worth of listen to any of their songs to see that they may be stretching things the truth just a bit. From the jarring squall of their dirty fuzz guitars to the massively reverberating drum sound, the blues in its Hives-and-White-Stripes-garage-rock glory is present and correct, and a treat for fans of either of those bands. The dynamic of the 22-20s equates to a whirlwind of sound, sweeping up everything in its heavy path, very reminiscent of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club but with slightly more definition. The added bonus of having keyboards in the mix increases the band's range, but they still manage to retain the edge of rawness that benefits all bands whose primary objective is to make you want to groove. If there's one complaint to this album, it's that the songs maintain a certainly predictability- either the constant tempo of the heaviest songs, or the usual weakness of the acoustic tracks like "Friends". This may wear on some, but the ferocity and talent of the band manage to hold attention for anyone with a passing interest in today's garage rock scene. --Thom Allott
