3.0 out of 5 stars So What Are You?, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Royal Southern Brotherhood (MP3 Download)
A colleague saw Royal Southern Brotherhood at a Festival recently and rated them highly. And he, like me, is a blues fan - so, intrigued, and without giving this any prior listening, I lashed out for a copy and now I cannot decide whether what my colleague heard was indeed what this CD purports to be!
When you look at the quality of the band members, then there is no question of pedigree, but this is no blues band. Neither is it a soul band. Neither is it a rock band - methinks it's actually struggling for an identity possibly resultant of that pedigree!
For me at least, the first six tracks are just a bit of a mish mash and completely fail to enthrall BUT, from track 7 to track 11 inclusive we are treated to a bucketful of good ol' southern rock, full of good guitar licks being traded and wonderful vocals. And track 12 "Brotherhood" is an attempt at a "Jessica", perhaps, intended as a live banner standard?
Certainly, they may well be a cracking band live, but on the evidence displayed here, I can only give it a 3* rating - give us an album of the quality of tracks 7-11 and the full 5* would not even need a second thought!
