One of the best rock albums in the last 25 years.,
This review is from: Permission To Land (Audio CD)
Ok, the darkness, not much of a name. In fact you probably haven't heard of them at all. But for the past five years they have been working there asses off. It shows.. this album plays just like a 'best of' album. Not a single filler and thats a garuntee. Hailed as the new Queen, The Darkness are making the way in rock music. The guitar is insatiable- I defy anyone to listen to 'I believe in a thing called love' without playing air guitar for twenty four hours afterwards. Their third single 'Growing on me' is included and is amazing. Backing vocals, drum fills and riffs to die for. Thats not even mentioning the lyrics. Pure genius.
Justins singing takes a little getting used to but once you've broken yourself in, it fits so well with each song. The final song 'Holding my own' is almost a ballad. It sums up summer festivals and all that is good in the world about music and rock. Absolutely fantastic. Please, if you are a fan of any type of rock then buy this album. They deserve every piece of success they get and should be recognised for bringing back guitar. THANKYOU for making music boys.
