Well, well, well. Just when I thought the world had been taken over by wannabee, talent(less) and reality show pap, along comes a not so gentle reminder that some people not only know what they're doing but have the balls to go out and do it.
This album is loud, proud and about as subtle as a mugging. As said elsewhere, not for the faint-hearted. Take a splash of the Velvet Underground, mix with a shot of Iggy Pop, throw in some Jesus and Mary Chain then . . . . . ah but wait a minute, isn't that a bit Led Zep? Tom Waits? Neil Young???
Actually it sounds like nothing else out there at the moment and is all the better for it. For having the sheer chutzpah to make this album in this bland era, for making me grin stupidly and shout along in the car, for any number of reasons this is a truly outstanding album. I'd give it six stars if I could.
Mr Cave I salute you!

There is nothing like a blast of rock music to dispel a dose of the wretched Boy/Girl band blues.
