Nothing new......return to the late '60s
on 5 May 2013
I had read reviews of their previous albums and thought they would be the sort of band that I would like. I saw the latest download offer of £4.49 and thought I would give it a try.
It is certainly not a bad album but I feel that I have heard it all before. The Black Angels really show their influences. I can hear early Pink Floyd (I Hear Colours) throughout as well as The Kinks and the Velvet Underground especially on The Day. However, they really remind me of an old early 1980's band, World Of Twist. I am also reminded of late 1960's film music on some of the tracks, such as War On Holiday.
I would like to have given 3 1/2 stars as I quite like it, it is just not that original. Best tracks are Holland, Broken Soldier and Love Me Forever.
If you like psychedelic influenced music, then you will probably enjoy this album. I was hoping for a little more and whether I will be playing this in a few weeks time, I'm not sure.
