Whilst being the antithesis of easy listening, this challenging album is an intensely rewarding, even cathartic experience. The Drones music is raw, raucous, at times brutal, at times surprisingly bittersweet, but always delivered with passion and real feeling. To give you an idea of their sound, imagine the lacerating twin guitar attack of MC5, Neil Young and Crazy Horse or The Beasts of Bourbon, with the art rock edge of Sonic Youth thrown in. But The Drones are much more than the sum of their infuences; their music takes the listener on journey into the heart of darkness, through a soundscape as stark and desolate as the Australian outback. It's the perfect antidote to Celine Dion! Hear it and be amazed.
