Plenty of room for improvement
on 30 December 2008
After a few listens to this, some irritations become clear.
The vocalist's range is limited from 'shouting' to 'shouting louder' - and any 'song' consists of simply alternating between the two.
The lyrics are clumsy at best. For example, in Cheap Wine & Cheaper Women, the line 'Women come and go, they never do remain' grates with me every time I hear it - the 'do' awkwardly inserted to make the line scan.
I can understand why the guitar riff based tunes have been compared to AC/DC, but the complete package is far from being anything like them.
Here's hoping their next album will be much improved.
