A friend recommended this album after seeing a review of it in the paper, and on first listen I was instantly hooked, so I immediatly bought it. I had never heard of them before, and THEN suddenly I'd found a new favourite band! Every song is strong and catchy, yet heavy in a controlled, melodic sense, but never "metal", by no means, oh no. With a couple of soft numbers, this album definetly has its dynamics. The guitars sound amazing, and enough spring reverb to shake a stick at! The drums sound really full and organic, and the basslines are as catchy as the guitar riffs. Vocals is where band of skulls really shine I think. There is a male and female vocalist, and when both are harmonising, it works incredibly well, both really great singers, and some ace lyrics to boot.
So go ahead and buy this album if your wanting something differant, and I'm sure people of most rock/popular styles will appereciate and find something to love in this album! Cant wait to see these guys live.
