Sharks and Dogs have lost their teeth?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shark Bites and Dog Fights (Audio CD)
After Babylon and Roots Rock Riot, I was expecting Skindred to do a lot of things. But one of them wasn't going soft. Unfortunately, that's what Shark Bites and Dog Fights seems to have done. I miss the power, rage and energy from the positive-spirited lads, instead of music which sounds like it's trying to move towards the mainstream rather than against it. I have nothing against the mainstream as such, but there are some bands who have such a basic and primal drive towards something else that you wish they'd have stayed in their own stream rather than joining that of everyone else. I'll still look forward to seeing them live - already have the tickets - because hopefully they'll do the unexpected with these songs live. And that, my friends, will be worth seeing!
