5.0 out of 5 stars Himalayan: Rock on an epic scale 1 April 2014
By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Band Of Skulls, the heavy riff-rockers from Southampton return with their third album, “Himalayan”, which takes the sound of their previous two long-players and soups it up a little with slicker production and an overall higher aggregate tempo. The big stomping Led Zep riffs haven't disappeared, they've simply been incorporated into a slightly more mainstream, higher-octane sound. The big question is, does it work? In my opinion, most definitely. As brilliant as “Baby Darling Doll Face” and “Sweet Sour” were, there was a danger that if the trio came back with a third album plying exactly the same wares as before then the fan base would have been a touch bored but, instead, Band Of Skulls have evolved without totally killing their core sound and the musical values which made people love them so much in the first place. This albums still sounds unmistakeably like Band Of Skulls, but, you know, with a new outfit and a bit of a snazzy haircut. It's like they've been listening to a bit of Black Keys, Kings of Leon, Queens Of The Stone Age and Kasabian (seriously, give “Brothers And Sisters a listen) to give them inspiration as to where they should be aiming for next... and it has been a brilliant success.

“Himalayan” is an album that sounds better and better the more you play it, especially when you start noticing the finer details behind the big, blustery hooks and there are so many top notch tracks here to sink your teeth into. Opening track, “Asleep At The Wheel” boasts a superb, stomping riff-based chorus, the title track sounds like a massive hit in waiting and is the kind of piledriving song that makes your body move along involuntarily and “Hoochie Coochie” thunders along at full pelt, boasting a chorus bolstered by a brilliantly sleazy, twisting riff.

4.0 out of 5 stars First timer... 9 July 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Saw a small bit of their performance at this year's Glastonbury and liked them, so bought the latest album to try. Liked it immediately - great hooks, riffs and a bit of heaviness. If you like the Black Keys, White Stripes, plus some 80s indie influences, you should like this.
