5.0 out of 5 stars Forwards not Backwards, 26 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Head Down (Audio CD)
This album is a joy to listen to, there is so much pure emotion in the songs that you can't help but be moved. The bands confidence just shines out and the level of expertise in their playing is obvious even from their last album. I don't believe that any artist(s)have ever released music that has not been influenced by someone in the past, even John Cale's"Two Minutes Silence" was stolen from the power cut on Greasy Truckers (or vice versa). Sure you can tell who have influenced them but it is a huge list and they have never tried to slavishly copy those artist(s). I can only say that in my opinion this album does not have a duff track on it, some may be weaker than others but no one has yet created the perfect album. If anyone did what would there be to strive for? Well I've been listening to music since the early sixties and I can't remember being this excited since Hendrix, Gentle Giant, Tull, The Who and Free. Long Live Rock as someone once said.
