I just saw them live at the Big Day Out festival (Auckland NZ) last week.. this band is unbelievable.. amazing.. so powerful.. waouh HUUUUUUUGE !!! Just buy this Cd which is one of the best currently available on the rock market. The Datsuns second LP is due to come out on May 2004.

The Great NZ Rockers of the modern time with their hard hitting, great debut album. The best tracks are Sittin' Pretty, MF From Hell,Fink For The Man, Freeze Sucker & their great single In Love. There are far more gurning solos and no-balls vocals on this record than are normally heard outside of comedy. Indeed, it probably brings Spinal Tap to mind more than any other band.The Datsuns' debut album is not quite this year's best rock album. That honour -so far - goes to Queens of the Stone Age's Songs For The Deaf. But for sheer hair-shaking fundamentalist exuberance, it's hard to beat. Derided as derivative 'big dumb rock' since their inception seven years ago in Cambridge, NZ, the Datsuns recorded their tight-fast-loud manifesto in a mere two weeks with producer Liam Watson, responsible for The White Stripes, Billy Childish, and the entire British punk blues underground.

With a strong old rock sound and the fantastic voice of the lead singer Dolf this album is one of the best to come out of New Zealand. I first saw this band live and was totally impressed and left with a hunger for more. Best tracks are the brilliant singe In Love along with MF From Hell and Harmonic Generator, but then, they are all wikid! Another person who is just as impressed with these Kiwi rockers is John Paul Jones of Led Zep who is currently producing the Datsuns next album.

What year is it? Most of the world is firmly esconced in the 21st century, but in the world of The Datsuns it seems to be permanently around the early seventies, when a wave of blues-influenced hard rock bands strode the world telling tales of hotels burning down and, er, juice running down their legs and stuff. This seems to be when time stopped for the Datsuns (even though it was probably before any of them were actually born), with only carefully-selected morsels of the intervening thirty years having seeped through into their consciousness (such as the Ramones-like adoption of the 'Datsun' monicker, or the minimalist monochrome band branding, betraying a punky-grungy streak). As a result, their debut album wears its influences like a badge of honour and rocks very hard indeed, and would not sound out of place alongside exalted ancestors like, say, Deep Purple's Machine Head, or Led Zeppelin II, which almost certainly feature prominently in the band's record collections (on scratched vinyl, probably). That is not to say the album is perfect, but tracks like 'Lady' and the stomping single 'I'm in Love' - is that a Hammond organ (or a close approximation) I can hear? - definitely urge the listener to turn the volume up to 11. Only time will tell if the Datsuns' sound sparks a revival or if they remain an anachronism - but until then, this is a mighty fine album that contains thirty-nine minutes of the joyous sound of rock'n'roll, played as it is meant to be.

The Datsuns - they're big in the 21st century, they sound like they should be somewhere else... but that sure ain't a bad thing! Bringing that good ol' 70's feel to the 00's, The Datsuns are throwing their dirty riffs and sleazy vocals right where it feels good. And it doesn't get any better than this! Never before has a band with an a sound from 30 years ago fitted in so well. The Datsuns are, quite purely, amazing.
If you're a fan of bands like The Vines, The Libertines and The Hives, chances are you've heard plenty by The Datsuns. If not, I have to recommend you buy this album. It's lively, in-yer-face attitude can't be missed. You thought 'In Love' was good? Wait 'til you hear the rest! 'MF From Hell' is a surefire hit, and 'You Build Me Up' and 'Harmonic Generator' capture the essence of 70s rock. The Datsuns haven't copied anyone or anything - they are just showing the younger generation how good music really can be.
I challenge you to buy this album, listen to it all, without giving in to the dirty vibe and throwing yourself (and your guitar) around your room. There's no point trying!
You wanted it, The Datsuns are giving you it.
The Datsuns - "I'm in Love!"

Move over waifish New York boys in skinny ties, 'cause the second coming of rock has finally arrived. The Datsuns, four sex on wheels boys from New Zealand, have emerged to recreate the sensual power and invigorating energy which once existed in music, wearing their influences past (AC/DC, Led Zepplin)and present (The White Stripes, The Von Bondies) on their tight fitting sleeves, but merging them creatively in order to create an all out explosion of rock. Even Dave Grohl has professed his love for the Kiwi foursome (ok, so after Andrew WK his track record isn't so good - but he was in Nirvana, so he still has his cred intact!)With headbanging, alcohol downing, good time tunes like "In Love" and "MF from Hell" The Datsuns have created the perfect record to play loudly and proudly. All hail the Datsuns - 2002's lords of the rock!

Anyone that grew up listening to bands like "Deep Purple", "Led-Zep", "Golden Earring" and bands of that era are gonna love this album. "The Datsuns",A four-piece rock group from cambridge,New Zealand rock as well as any of the above, and return us back to a time when people in bands could play guitars properly, launching into blistering solos, and the lead singers would scream out their vocals.
Nu-metal has been around a while, and is fine, but missing a certain spark, which "the Datsuns" certainly have.
Included is their current single "In Love" which absolutely blew my mind when I heard it.I cannot recommend this album highly enough (a little short, but then its quality not quantity that counts in this case)and am now desperate to go and see them perform live.I hope "The Datsuns" are gonna be huge!!
