Product Description

BBC Review

With high-profile supports slots with the likes of AC/DC and Alice Cooper under their belts and iTunes’ Rock Breakthrough Band of the Year 2011 award resting on what may one day become a groaning mantelpiece, LA quartet Rival Sons are big news in the rock world.

Plying a brand of soulful hard rock dripping with the blues and swaggering to a good-time groove, they’re arguably the best recent addition to the swelling ranks of 70s revivalist acts. Of course, if all they had were cool clothes, even cooler record collections and a hatful of recycled riffs, there’d be little reason to sit up and listen. Crucially, they’ve got great songs and this, their second full-length album, is simply stuffed with rollicking tunes.

Although it’s not all about comparisons, many of them loom rather loudly from the speakers with each crashing chord and thudding beat: Led Zeppelin, Free, Bad Company, even The Doors at times, and – perhaps unsurprisingly given their youth – a smattering of 90s rawk in the shape of The Black Crowes, Masters of Reality and Queens of the Stone Age. As influences go – subconscious or otherwise – it’s a pretty darn tasteful list, and lovers of pure, high-voltage rock’n’roll of any era will get a kick out of this. As thrusting and in your face as it is, however, Pressure & Time is not without subtlety or – saints preserve us – sensitivity, as the gentler strains of Only One and Face of Light make clear.

Musically, the band are outstanding: guitarist Scott Holiday, bassist Robin Everhart and drummer Michael Miley glide effortlessly between locked-in and loose as frontman Jay Buchanan lays down his best Robert Plant impression. The production, meanwhile, is big on punch but sparing on polish, retaining the garagey vibe which the admittedly excellent Black Stone Cherry and The Answer lack.

At a relatively modest half-hour, the album never outstays its welcome. In fact, if there’s any criticism which might stick, it’s that some of the songs are actually too short. More than once the cry for a volcanic guitar climax is met with a swift fade out. It’s an issue they rectify on stage, which brings us to the extras padding out this redux version. Nestling alongside two bonus tracks – Company Man and Life for This Road, both worthy inclusions – is a DVD featuring various live performances and promotional videos. If you already own the album, it’s probably not worth shelling out again simply for the extras. Better to spend the cash on a concert ticket. But if you’re still mulling a first time purchase, now’s the time to make it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pressure and Time by The Rival Sons 31 Oct 2012
By Gav B
Format:Audio CD
Difficult to actually criticise apart from that its a shame the album isn't longer..Refreshing to listen to a new band that takes their sound from Led Zep and The Kinks while managing to create their own noise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Money making? 17 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OK; I really like Rival Sons and this redux edition benefits from the 2 extra songs and the video clips. They do look really cool in concert. But (and a big but) I am concerned about the value for the money and whether we are being taken for a ride. The 2 extra songs were already available for download and could have been included in the original release. That CD was only just over 30 minutes long. The video clips from High Voltage are excellent but why have we got only 3 songs? Surely the whole set could have been issued. Look for comparison to Electric Mary III - who gave us a CD of new material and an extra DVD with 30 minutes of live material. So excellent music but one star for the way they regard their fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good I bought it twice ! 27 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ok so I already had the original release from 2011 of Pressure & Time and I loved it and then saw that the record company was doing like many others these days and issuing an expanded version of the CD with a DVD included.
While it may be a cheek for record companies to do this I think this version was worth it as you had 2 bonus tracks on the CD which were the 2 tracks released as a 7" vinyl for Record store day in April 2012 and a DVD with 7 live & promo videos as well as a video trailer. Since I bought it for 9 when it was released in March it was even cheaper than the original CD I bought last year !
Also was lucky enough to catch them live in March with Black Stone Cherry and they were excellent live. Just pre-ordered the new CD Head Down due in Sept 2012.
