5.0 out of 5 stars Back To The Future, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great Western Valkyrie (Audio CD)
Well they've gone and done it again. The Sons have taken so much of was great about rock music in the late sixties and early seventies, thrown it into a melting pot and for the fourth time produced an outstanding album that acknowledges its heritage yet sounds fresh. So many bands and artists these days just try and recreate what has gone before but without making it sound interesting and then failing to make an album that is worth re-visiting, but what these guys have done is take little bits of those older classic artists and thrown them together in each song so that no one song sounds just like another artist that has gone before. So yes you get some Zeppelin, the drum intro to Open My Eyes sounds straight from When The Levee Breaks, then you get some Doors, Ray Manzarek style keyboards sneaking in here and there, oh and then some Who style chords in the opening to Belle Starr, but they never stay in the style of just one band. Good Thing has elements of Just Dropped In by Kenny Rogers & The First Edition, the song used in The Big Lebowski's dream sequence where Jeff Bridges 'Dude' floats around a bunch of buxom Valkyries, perhaps a nod from the albums title. The playing as always is excellent, Jays vocals reaching new heights particularly on the slower songs and yes it rocks out but just as with Head Down a couple of beautiful slower songs are there to for light and shade. So there we have it, Rival Sons fourth album, it's a corker that yes visits rock musics past but feels fresh and constantly interesting, The Dude would approve!!!
