5.0 out of 5 stars Kiwi rockers pump up the volume!, 14 Oct. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Datsuns (Audio CD)
Take four young men, get them together at the age of 14, start a band and play live. In essence that's the Datsuns. Now in their early 20's, they could be considered veterans of the New Zealand music scene (is there one?). Well, here's the good news, the wait has served them well.
If you like your rock, fast, loud, punky and full of teenage testosterone then these lot will suit the bill very nicely. Don't think of them as purely retro rockers, they sit very nicely with the likes of the Hives and their country compatriots, The D4, kicking in music that sounds as fresh as the day they first picked up their guitars.
Yes, it sounds like AC/DC in places, but, I ask you, if you want a reference point for the best popular rock music ever written, then I can think of no better starting point.
The songs blaze from track number 1 onwards, 'Sittin Pretty' has a riff to die for, 'MF from Hell' is utterly mad, speed lust rock and it gets better from there on.
The single 'In Love', sees things get down to a more boogie style pace, but fear not, by track 10 things are back up to pace.
It's not original, by any means, but who cares. They are the best live band I've seen in 2002 and they have the songs to blow your speakers to kingdom come. I guarantee, you'll be playing it at full volume from day one, air guitar in hand, screaming like a banshee.
It's one of the essential albums of the year!
