I first remember seeing the Datsuns on Kerrang! and there was all this hype of them being the 'saviours of rock' etc and it wasn't misplaced at all. This a cracking straight to the point, no frills, rocker of an album that doesn't even consider messing around with ballads and acoustic/string arrangements. Straight up rock and a very good slice of it. Give it a go!

Four piece garage rock band The Datsuns from New Zealand have released six albums to date, but the one I still play the most is their exhilarating self-titled debut from 2002. There are some real traditional AC/DC/Led Zeppelin-like rockers on it, with catchy-as-hell riffs and real guitar solos. The whole album is great fun, so just be sure to turn up the volume and let it play loud. Co-produced by Liam Watson who engineered and mixed the White Stripes' 'Elephant' album, 'The Datsuns' is best played over a few beers I think.

I can't say that there is anything particularly original at all about the ten songs on this CD, but who cares? If you like real rock 'n' rollers with that authentic rock sound, then you should check The Datsuns out.

The Great NZ Rockers of the modern time with their hard hitting, great debut album. The best tracks are Sittin' Pretty, MF From Hell,Fink For The Man, Freeze Sucker & their great single In Love. There are far more gurning solos and no-balls vocals on this record than are normally heard outside of comedy. Indeed, it probably brings Spinal Tap to mind more than any other band.The Datsuns' debut album is not quite this year's best rock album. That honour -so far - goes to Queens of the Stone Age's Songs For The Deaf. But for sheer hair-shaking fundamentalist exuberance, it's hard to beat. Derided as derivative 'big dumb rock' since their inception seven years ago in Cambridge, NZ, the Datsuns recorded their tight-fast-loud manifesto in a mere two weeks with producer Liam Watson, responsible for The White Stripes, Billy Childish, and the entire British punk blues underground.

With a strong old rock sound and the fantastic voice of the lead singer Dolf this album is one of the best to come out of New Zealand. I first saw this band live and was totally impressed and left with a hunger for more. Best tracks are the brilliant singe In Love along with MF From Hell and Harmonic Generator, but then, they are all wikid! Another person who is just as impressed with these Kiwi rockers is John Paul Jones of Led Zep who is currently producing the Datsuns next album.

What year is it? Most of the world is firmly esconced in the 21st century, but in the world of The Datsuns it seems to be permanently around the early seventies, when a wave of blues-influenced hard rock bands strode the world telling tales of hotels burning down and, er, juice running down their legs and stuff. This seems to be when time stopped for the Datsuns (even though it was probably before any of them were actually born), with only carefully-selected morsels of the intervening thirty years having seeped through into their consciousness (such as the Ramones-like adoption of the 'Datsun' monicker, or the minimalist monochrome band branding, betraying a punky-grungy streak). As a result, their debut album wears its influences like a badge of honour and rocks very hard indeed, and would not sound out of place alongside exalted ancestors like, say, Deep Purple's Machine Head, or Led Zeppelin II, which almost certainly feature prominently in the band's record collections (on scratched vinyl, probably). That is not to say the album is perfect, but tracks like 'Lady' and the stomping single 'I'm in Love' - is that a Hammond organ (or a close approximation) I can hear? - definitely urge the listener to turn the volume up to 11. Only time will tell if the Datsuns' sound sparks a revival or if they remain an anachronism - but until then, this is a mighty fine album that contains thirty-nine minutes of the joyous sound of rock'n'roll, played as it is meant to be.

The Datsuns - they're big in the 21st century, they sound like they should be somewhere else... but that sure ain't a bad thing! Bringing that good ol' 70's feel to the 00's, The Datsuns are throwing their dirty riffs and sleazy vocals right where it feels good. And it doesn't get any better than this! Never before has a band with an a sound from 30 years ago fitted in so well. The Datsuns are, quite purely, amazing.
If you're a fan of bands like The Vines, The Libertines and The Hives, chances are you've heard plenty by The Datsuns. If not, I have to recommend you buy this album. It's lively, in-yer-face attitude can't be missed. You thought 'In Love' was good? Wait 'til you hear the rest! 'MF From Hell' is a surefire hit, and 'You Build Me Up' and 'Harmonic Generator' capture the essence of 70s rock. The Datsuns haven't copied anyone or anything - they are just showing the younger generation how good music really can be.
I challenge you to buy this album, listen to it all, without giving in to the dirty vibe and throwing yourself (and your guitar) around your room. There's no point trying!
You wanted it, The Datsuns are giving you it.
The Datsuns - "I'm in Love!"
