I don't write many reviews on here - only when something really grabs my attention (or really irritates me) do I bother. I have formerly given Pig Iron a really good write up for their first album and I was very much looking forward to the follow up. Being obsessed with music, I'm always wary about saying too much about an album right after I've just got it - it takes a while to see how something truly rates and if it's going to make a real impression on you. Thank the maker, B+P=D certainly doesn't let anybody down.
Although the band have had a little exposure in Classic Rock (they've generally received positive press for this album from other rock mags too) it still seems wrong to me that a fantastic British band of this nature are still being overlooked. I'm not going to dissect the album track by track, nor am I going to waffle on endlessly about its contents; I'll say this though I gave the first album five out of five and this follow up is not only a worthy successor, but a natural progression from the earlier material.
Any fans of Sabbath, Skynrd or other classic 70's rock will just love this stuff. The arrival of a new guitarist seems to have tightened the band slightly, giving them a little more focus and definitely more light and shade to their music. But as I promised not to bang on and on I'll leave it at that. Look, it's really very simple; stop reading this, just add it to your basket. You won't regret it.
