Forget the Hives et al - this is the new rock 'n' roll,
This review is from: In Casino Out (Audio CD)
Despite best fitting the description of a post-hardcore band, At the Drive-in display a real rock 'n' roll attitude. The tracks are explosive, upbeat numbers, with brilliant shouted/sung vocal dynamics and it really does make you feel good listening to them.
For those who have heard the similarly excellent, 'Relationship of Command', 'In Casino Out' is a rawer, somewhat punkier album. Rather than the heavier sound of its successor, the band concentrates more on melody, with slightly simpler song structures. There a certain amount of dub evident giving it a slightly crazy sound in places, though.
The music is intelligent, the cryptic lyrics thought-provoking and the variety great. At the Drive-in are one of the greatest rock acts of all time. Enough Said.
