I've been watching these guys for a few years. They averaged about two or three cuts per CD that I really liked. Each album seemed to get better and I saw possibilities for the Datsuns. They slowly left behind the echos of glam metal screaming a.k.a. cover/bar band status, and emerged more poppy, edgey & cool. Right now that sound is what I dig. The Vines, The Bloody Hollies, The Mutts, The Hangmen, and some Caesars. Goth metal and basic mainstream rock is so dead. Yuck! I like the arrogant young kids in these bands and their style and dress. They are what is happening, chic, cool and wild. Vacant star status makes a true rockstar. So get out there with the Datsuns and break-up some furniture and trash the party! Their music is fun and original and makes me want to dance and party. Isn't that how music is supposed to be? I see some Distillers in them at times and a little Hives, but with more direction.I think they will go somewhere if nobody OD's or worse, gets married! The best bands seem to be coming from the UK, Australia and New Zealand these days, and L.A. and the Strip is on fire with this sound. The Datsuns are in the right place and I think Smoke & Mirrors will get them recognized. Still, I would only buy four tracks off it. I haven't found an album in years that each track was great. It is out in New Zealand already. But, those four songs are killer, Just what I was looking for... Tear it up boys!
