orange goblins released this their fifth album in 2003,and was a departure from the albums that they made prior to this,before this the boys played stoner/doom with trippy segments,with this album you get a more rock n roll and indeed punkier,snappier sound all round,this is foot tapping,fists in the air grooves a plenty.

Opening up with the venom of a cobra in a field with baby chicks,'some you win,some you lose' is something special,the back up vocals are key here as the song progresses into a riff feast,'black egg' is the ultimate track here,spine tingling brilliance that may well send your spine spiralling out of your body,the riff here is majestic,and female guest vocalist sharon shanahan just adds to the sheer class of this song.On the eleven songs here there are moments that will make you wonder how this band are still so underground,vocalist ben ward has a great voice,bassist martyn has a style of his own and joe who plays guitar plays for the devil for sure with such a range of glorious riffs and drummer chris hits the drums like his arms are on fire ,at times the album has a very live feel to it and i think that works in their favour.Album closer 'crown of locusts' saunters on like a good thing and with that 47 minutes of your life will have passed and you cant help but say,dear lord,this is how it should be done,orange goblin head to the irish shores in june and i will groove through the door without a doubt.

I have all of O.G albums and this is their best.Their first couple of albums are slower stoner/doom metal with quieter moments.This however is faster, punkier and more intense from the start,by the time its over you will feel exausted.Stand out tracks are the heavy,blistering punk of,Some you win some you lose,Lazy Mary and the ultra heavy Round Up The Horses,but the truth is there are no fillers.If your a fan of Sabbath,Motorhead,QOTSA you will love these guys because they are one of the few hardcore bands who understand people want to have a good time listening to music and not be angry and negative.In my opinion this is one of the greatest rock albums to come out of England EVER its that good.

This is the 2nd album I've bought by the mighty Goblin. It's an absolute stick on work of heavy, catchy, groovey rockin genius. Always a brings a cheeky smile to my face in the car. They deserve a damn sight more credit than they get at present.

Orange Goblin have been on the scene for awhile, since '95 these guy'shave been proping up bars all over the world. Not content with alreadyhaving some classic stoner albums under their beer guts they decided toproduce another!
This is it, 'Thieving In The House Of God', and itdoesn't disappoint. Full of huge, chugging riffs, back breaking drums andenough killer bass to blow your ears in. From the off it's like being hitin the face with a wet fish, with 'Some you win, some you lose' and 'Oneroom, one axe, one outcome' coming at you like a frieght train with nobrakes. On the whole the album follows the Goblins normal style: simple,dark and HEAVY....the way it used to be done.
There are a few stand-outtracks 'Black Egg', 'Crown Of Locusts' and 'Hard Luck' but the whole albumis to such a high quality that it's hard to pick 'STANDOUTS'!
In general it's not a good album and not a bad album....it's a GOBLINalbum...and as anyone who already owns one of their previous releases willknow thats all you need to know.
If your new to 'The Goblin' then this is probably not the best album -they have a very defined way of doing things....you guessed it....THEGOBLIN WAY!! The style of songs and the way they are delivered takes somegetting used, but absolutely worth it. If you want an album to start onthe Goblin then try 'Frequencies From The Planet 10' but thats anotherstory, for another time!!!
