3.0 out of 5 stars The ersatz Ruts?, 28 July 2005
Mr. H "Mr H" (Embra) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Hard To Beat [CD 1] (Audio CD)
I'm not sure the world needed a Ruts tribute band, but bearing in mind how good the Ruts were, an ersatz version does have a certain unnecessary appeal.
Lead track 'Hard To Beat' passes by pleasantly enough in a dubby, quasi Killers kind of way, but with better vocals and stronger melodies. I was expecting more rage from the armpit of England, but I suspect underneath it all there's a classic rock band waiting to get out, more Elton John than Eminem.
A theory borne out by the acoustic second track, 'Tied Up Too Tight', which has enough plaintive appeal to get the lighters aloft, despite the lapses into patoi. Potentially very good, but not the 2nd coming.
