BBC REVIEW WAY OFF!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hot Cakes (Audio CD)
I don`t know whether the Darkness are taking the hit and miss. I don`t know whether, if they are, they KNOW they are. All I do know is I love their music. I enjoyed Permission To Land, thought One Way Ticket was even better and I think this album is wonderful. Hard to believe it is about seven years since they released the afore mentioned One Way Ticket. Justin`s downward spiral has been well documented, including his attempt to get into the Eurovision Song Contest (I voted for him twice.....) and apart from his cover of the wonderful Sparks classic, This Town Ain`t Big Enough For The Both Of Us I hadn`t heard him sing anything new. I too am quite baffled by the BBC reviewer, each to their own I suppose, but Hot Cakes is crammed full of fantastic music. Worth buying just for the She`s Just A Girl, Eddie/Forbidden Love section alone. Glad I bought this version with the extra stuff. Fantastic, funny, loud, nostalgic, outrageous. I may not know much about art but I know what I like.

If you haven't heard Justin sing anything new since "This town..." get the Hot Leg album. It's brilliant!
