4.0 out of 5 stars A definite grower., 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great Western Valkyrie (Audio CD)
Was very much looking forward to this album after loving Rival Sons previous album Head Down but initially I was a little disappointed. There were standout tracks such as Electric Man, Play the Fool, Good Things and the amazing Destination on Course, but not much else was grabbing my attention in the way every track on Head Down did. I must have listened to the album 5 or 6 times now and it's definitely a grower, Rich and the Poor and Belle Star really shining after a few listens and the guitar work showing the more times you listen to it.
I suppose the most lazy and obvious comparison here would be The Black Keys; A lot of the songs have that bands bluesy garage rock feel but dig deeper and the Led Zeppelin, Doors, maybe Free influences are there and it's another awesome vocal performance from Jay Buchanan, who on the aforementioned Destination on Course seems to be channelling Jeff Buckley and Robert Plant.
Time will tell but overall this doesn't feel like a giant leap forward but at the same time Great Western Valkyrie is a very good rock album and one that should see Rival Sons become one of the biggest bands of their style around.
