Please be totally influenced by all the praise these lads have been given. This has to be the best dark album I have ever heard, you can forget the well known bands like NIN, these lads are the big momma's biscuit. Darkest days contains every type of emotional rock there has ever been, but given an added spice to make greater than anything before. It is more than your money's worth, you could buy a whole music store and if it didn't have this album, then you've been done my friend cos this is superb, a collective gathering of the most compatible rock musicians. Anybody who doesn't like Darkest Days must have a good reason, like " they haven't listened to it" Stabbing Westward are the biggest thing since the invention of the wheel.
