2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Mar 2014
Format: Audio CD
Hailing out of France but sounding like they're steeped in the spirit of 1991 US Grunge, Seventies British Heavy Metal and Prog and even New European Psych - "The Socks" make a hell of an angry racket. And in the case of "Some Kind Of Sorcery" (the lead off single) they have been clearly snorting Nirvana's "Nevermind" and Black Sabbath's "Master Of Reality" on a nightly basis.

"Next To The Light" has that great phased Ozzie vocal (similar to "Planet Caravan") and it's as commercial (dare we say it) as this album gets. I can hear this beauty getting serious airplay.

Personal favourites include the choppy guitar-rock of "Gypsy Lady" with its heavy Stranglers bass and keyboard lines while the six and half-minute finisher "The Last Dragon" with its smoky guitars and Mellotron swirl would do many a Vertigo Spiral band proud (May Blitz and Linda Hoyle's Affinity jump to mind). I bet it slays them live.

Similar in vein to Black Rainbows, Karma To Burn and Mars Red Sky - The Socks have made a slammer of a debut and Julien Meret's vocals are going to make Kurt Cobain and Chris Cornell fans sit up and take serious notice. Well done…

"The Socks" - Self-Titled Debut Album on Small Stone Records Blows Up A Retro Storm In 2014... 24 Mar 2014
By Mark Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hailing out of Lyon in France but sounding like they're steeped in the spirit of 1991 US Grunge, Seventies British Heavy Metal and Prog and even New European Psych - "The Socks" make a hell of an angry racket. And in the case of "Some Kind Of Sorcery" (the lead off single) they have been clearly snorting Nirvana's "Nevermind" and Black Sabbath's "Master Of Reality" on a nightly basis.

70s style psychedelic-crunch guitar/keyboard rock 30 May 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Debut album from French band—ramped-up, 70s style psychedelic-crunch guitar/keyboard rock with a gritty-hard edge of epic prog-melody. Soaring riffs and keys rise over heavy-handed chord structures and trippy rock-star vocals in the arena of classic rock ‘n’ roll. Similarities to Black Heat Shujaa, Kadavar, Jeremy Irons and the Ratgang Malibus, Night Horse, Black Rainbows, Pink Floyd.
One hell of an album. Blew my socks off! 29 Mar 2014
By Fiona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Only thing wrong is that after listening to the album most other rock sounds dull and monotonous.

Brilliant creativity and originality.
