5.0 out of 5 stars Pressure and Time by The Rival Sons
Difficult to actually criticise apart from that its a shame the album isn't longer..Refreshing to listen to a new band that takes their sound from Led Zep and The Kinks while managing to create their own noise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Money making?
OK; I really like Rival Sons and this redux edition benefits from the 2 extra songs and the video clips. They do look really cool in concert. But (and a big but) I am concerned about the value for the money and whether we are being taken for a ride. The 2 extra songs were already available for download and could have been included in the original release. That CD was only...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good in every way, 8 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Pressure & Time Redux Edition (Audio CD)
I agree with other reviews there are some Led-Zeppelin-esque overtones to this album, plus hints to other 60s / early-70s rock bands. But Rival Sons do have their own unique sound, and if you like confident, thumping, foot-tapping rock led by good guitar licks and strong vocals, you should definitely give this album a listen. This, Rival Sons' debut album, has a more raw sound than their later (and perhaps more well known, as least in UK) album, "Head Down." But it's not raucous; the mellower tracks (such as Only One) in particular are very well-crafted. If you've heard, and like, anything at all by Rival Sons, it's pretty certain you'll like this album. For a while it was hard to obtain in UK, but this edition with the bonus DVD is a bargain.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip Off Sons?, 21 April 2012
This review is from: Pressure & Time Redux Edition (Audio CD)
Great band but just too short - with the majority of tracks of only around 3 minutes long, some less, there is barely 37 minutes of music on the CD, and that's including the two bonus tracks. The live videos on the DVD from High Voltage are not the best of their set either - why couldn't they include the 12 minute medley of Oh Well/Save Me/I Want More/Baby Please Don't Go that features as the highlight of their live set?
This Redux edition is only for die hard fans with loads of money to spare - if you already have 'Pressure and Time' don't bother with this. Fantastic sound but just not enough of it.
