Rival Sons really are at the top of their game with this album. I've heard several people say this album is a grower but it was instant for me. I've been listening to Open My Eyes, Electric Man, Belle Starr and Good Things on the run up to release and all are pure classics. Great production, perfect playing and just about the best rock vocals around today.

Having listened to the rest of the album today there's clearly a wide variety of styles on display but with the unmistakeable Rival Sons sound running through. The Zeppelin influence is evident but what better band to be influenced by?! As for sounding like the Doors, I can only hear their influence on one track and to be honest Jim Morrison never sounded this good (and that's coming from a Doors fan)!!

Basically do yourself a favour buy this today, and while you're at it go see 'em live!!

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!!!

Classic Rock* has been peddling this band for quite a while, to the point that it felt like outright nepotism. This was a bit of a put-off really and early recordings that were given away with the magazine seemed somewhat unspectacular and not at all worth the hype.

The magazine then helpfully dished out yet another freebie of the band's history (here we go again, I thought) so reluctantly I took it to play on my long commute in the car and lo and behold the first track `Open My Eyes' blasted out of the dash board like a modern day Led Zeppelin (think Rock `n Roll or When the Levee Breaks). Inspired I bought the album which instantly showed how the band had consolidated their sound into a consistent 60's, very early 70's vibe but with a big rock sound. It's fair to say that every song, style wise, pretty much apes something that you will have heard countless times before (except for the yodelling on Electric Man....). So you get, say, the screaming vocal power of Jim Morrison of the Doors on `Secret', the 60s hippy dreaminess of the Righteous Brothers on `Good Luck' (You've Got That Loving Feeling) and other nods towards Led Zeppelin, The Animals, early Deep Purple (Black Night riff on 'Secret' anyone?), the Stones and even the Cult in their Electric/Love period (on the rock swagger of opener 'Electric Man'). What makes it great (at least for the first 7 tracks) is that the commitment is 100%, the production is contemporary and reasonably 'heavy' but the style and instrumentation is pure Old School (Hammond organs, 60's microphone and drum sound, tambourines, 'hippy trip' in-fills that will summon up images of girls with big hair and mini skirts gyrating around on podiums) and the songs are ridiculously catchy and well crafted (possibly too catchy for endless repeat listens?).
