The Best Album Of The Year So Far,
By A Customer
This review is from: Howl: Special Edition/+Book (Audio CD)
I heard Aint No Easy Way on the radio a few weeks ago and pre-ordered the album as soon as I could. It arrived on its release date (Monday) and it hasnt been out of the cd player yet (Wednesday).
What is definitely isnt is another BRMC cd. Theres no grunge, no dirty dark blues rock here, just beautiful, clean blues/rock/folk. Dont get me wrong, i love BRMC, Spread Your Love is a favourite, but while there are some Rifles on here, this album is neither. Its Dylanesque, its chain-gang America, its still bluesy with country undertones. Sounds like a fine wine - it is.
There may not be anything here that hasnt already been tried before, but BRMC have succeeded in creating a record with a fresh modern take on some old classic styles.
I bought the Limited Edition which has a book like cover. Like the music within, it is clean, simple, classy and understated.
For me, this is the record of the year.
