5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, fresh and it makes you want to dance!, 15 Jun 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Repulsion Box (Audio CD)
After their first album, Love the Cup, Sons and Daughters continue to impress with an album that mixes a raw and rich traditional British alternative feel with folk music and the kind of low-down, mean and dirty sort of Country and Western that Johnny Cash used to play. From the bouncy enthusiasm of the first track, Medicine, to the every-beat-has-an-impact ride of the last track, Gone, this album pulls you in and spins you round. It's fun, it's dark, it's reverential to those who have gone before (the aforementioned JC, Nick Cave, et al, and I can't help but think of the great Siouxsie Sioux when I listen to Royally Used) but S&D have not plagiarised so much as taken their influences and made a fresh and innovative sound that is so wonderfully British in its own way, yet accessible to so many. My faves at the moment linger more near the end of the album - Choked, Monsters, Rama Lama, Royally Used - but the beauty of S&D is that each song effects you in a different way and, depending on my mood, I may well change that favourite list in a wee while. If you like old school Goth or New Wave or American Independent, if you enjoy folk or C&W, if you just want a good old bop, give this album a try.
