5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 24 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
Just to set the scene, I am late 30's and a fan of rock/metal in general. I can enjoy anything from Matchbox 20 to Metallica.
I wasn't expecting too much from Stone Gods, but seeing the Classic rock review made me sit up and take notice. I'm glad I did.
The first few listens were encouraging. Burn The Witch being the best. Similar to the Darkness in terms of riffing but this time supporting by the awesome rock vocals of Richie Edwards. A perfect match.
The songs are all great. Not a single filler, and a lot of variation, but not too much so that you find the album disjointed.
There's a few potential commercial singles, but thankfully they sit nicely with the rest of the (heavier) songs and don't sound out of place at all.
I'd played the album around 10 times when it suddenly became a "repeat play" album - something which doesn't happen too often with me these days. The only song I do skip is the final one O Whereo my beero, which is ok but a little pedestrian compared to the sheer quality before it.
I checked out how the album and singles had done just now and couldn't believe how lacklustre the sales have been. The Darkness' hype obviously made the difference because this albums kicks both of their albums into touch and deserves so much more.
Awesome songs, awesome singing, awesome riffing. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of THE DARKNESS 21 Jun 2008
By S. Hammond VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I got hold of a preview of this album, and being big fan of the darkness a few years back, I was expecting to be disappointed.

I was hooked from the very first track BURN THE WITCH, which I believe is their first single, which ends with a bit of thrash metal stylee guitar shredding. This band are a lot heavier than the darkness ever were, and I don't think can be seen as a novelty band which was a kinda label that the darkness couldn't really shake.

I have had this cd for a week, and its been playing in my works van non-stop on repeat....it's a catchy album!

The bands seem to have gelled well with new addition of Toby MacFarlaine (out of Graham Coxons band), and Ritchie Edwards seems to have taken over well at the mic.

There's not quite as many of the thin-lizzy inspired twin lead guitar-work on here as on the darkness, as I suspect Ritchie is playing rythm guitar, and not dabbling too much.

There's influences you can here from a few artists....some acdc, and a little thin lizzy in places (as with the darkness), track 12 has DEFINITELY got a reminicence of Def Leppard about it.

I can't pick out a bad track on here, like I say its been playing non stop in my van, and I think it will be for quite some time.

This is what the darkness SHOULD have been like!!

I hope Stone Gods have huge success with this album, and I hope many folk will be as pleasantly surprised by this cd as I were.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this band and album -- buy this immediately! 15 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
What I liked about The Darkness was that the songs were good, I got the humor, and the band was absolutely killer! I sometimes got tired of the Justin's vocals, though.

The Stone Gods are not that similar to The Darkness, except for the fact that it is the same band and they're still just as amazing! This is a very strong hard rock album with solid songs all the way through. Drummer Ed Graham still lays down a groove like all of my favorite AC/DC songs, and Dan and Ritchie's guitar work is in top form, as there are tons of great riffs, and lots of great playing. Ritchie's vocals are quite a bit different than Justin's were, but I *much* prefer Ritchie's!

This album reminds me a bit of the excellent Canadian band Sword from the 80's, but I really prefer the Stone Gods. It's too bad that US radio is so useless these days, because Don't Drink The Water, Where You Coming From, and Lazy Bones would all make awesome singles.

If you're looking for one of the best hard rock albums in a long time and one of the best hard rock debuts this decade, don't hesitate -- buy it immediately. This will be a band to watch. I hope they come to the US.

4.0 out of 5 stars This could be the Start Of Something 6 Jan 2009
By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's amazing how The Darkness sounded like a bit of a novelty act, but if you remove lead singer Justin Hawkins from the mix and put guitarist brother Dan in charge of proceedings, you're left with an excellent, respectable metal band which you just have to take seriously. That's not to say that all of the fun has been taken away from the music, far from it - there's some truly enjoyable, uplifting stuff on Stone Gods' debut and a few musical jokes (like a brief calypso interlude on 'Don't Drink The Water', for example), but at least Dan can begin to gain (or rebuild?) a reputation as a musician instead of as merely part of The Darkness, a group who nobody, despite their obvious musical technical ability, could really say were ever put alongside the real giants of rock or metal. I'm not suggesting for a moment that Stone Gods have made an album which will catapult them straight into the rock aristocracy, but 'Silver Spoons & Broken Bones' is a very good start.

There are a heap of great rock/metal songs on this album, most of which have the band's influences clearly on display. 'Burn The Witch' is a quality opener, with more that a little hint of Megadeth or even Metallica at their most commercial. The storming 'You Brought A Knife To A Gunfight' is reminiscent of AC/DC and has a great - and amusing - chorus. Possibly the most surprising track on this album is 'Magdalene Street', a melodic, jaunty piece of sixties-influenced pop/rock which, apart from the vocals, sounds as if it could have been a track on release by Cast or The Coral. My favourite track here is probably the stomping rocker 'I'm With The Band', which sounds like a classic AC/DC cut and boasts some excellent guitar work.
