Question. Can four Krishna following vegetarians be the future of rock'n'roll? On the evidence of this album, and last years Pressure And Time, perhaps they can, but they're managing it by looking firmly to the past. Anyone who has heard Pressure And Time, or their debut, knows that there is more than a touch of Zeppelin and Free to their music. It's perhaps unfortunate that the lead singles off both this album and the previous one are amongst their most Zeppelinesque tracks. Unfortunate, because the Sons are not another Kingdom Come. Yes, the Zeps clearly influence the sound but there is so much more to their music. It is certainly firmly based in the late sixties, early seventies with nods to The Who, The Pretty Things and Grateful Dead but it is done with such enthusiasm that it somehow feels fresh. When they rock these guys certainly know how to rock, the guitar playing is excellent throughout and the rhythm section are tighter than than a strippers thong. There are a couple of beautiful acoustic tracks here that allow Jay Buchanan to show what an outstanding singer he is. Again more than just a Robert Plant clone. All in all this is a wonderful rock album that takes you back to a time when musicians knew how to play and followed their muse instead of the dictates of desperate record companies. So if you're unsure whether or not to buy this album, hesitate no longer it's a corker. If vegetarianism can get you to make music this good, it's time to drop the steaks and get on the mung beans!!!

I have listened to this a number of times this week and I think this is an excellent album for a number of reasons. The range of style of songs is wide from the rock 'keep on swinging' to progressive style ' manifest destiny' to beautiful 'Jordan' which is a lament/celebration.
When I first heard Jordan it reaised the hairs on the back of my neck as I thought it was so good - not sentimental but recognising sometimes you have to let go and in Manifest Destiny (Parts 1 and 2) its a longer song telling a story of what I think was the Native Americans.
But I think the song I like the most is Run from Revalation - a more honest view about 'i want to do it again' - and what I'm sure will be superb live
These guys are developing from the initial 'led zep alike' tag which is frankly now redundant
This is a huge step forward in my opinion - so much it displaced Clockwork Angels in the car stereo - now that is a recommendation !

This album is a joy to listen to, there is so much pure emotion in the songs that you can't help but be moved. The bands confidence just shines out and the level of expertise in their playing is obvious even from their last album. I don't believe that any artist(s)have ever released music that has not been influenced by someone in the past, even John Cale's"Two Minutes Silence" was stolen from the power cut on Greasy Truckers (or vice versa). Sure you can tell who have influenced them but it is a huge list and they have never tried to slavishly copy those artist(s). I can only say that in my opinion this album does not have a duff track on it, some may be weaker than others but no one has yet created the perfect album. If anyone did what would there be to strive for? Well I've been listening to music since the early sixties and I can't remember being this excited since Hendrix, Gentle Giant, Tull, The Who and Free. Long Live Rock as someone once said.

"Head down" is a very refreshing and modern rock record with it's fundaments in the blues. It's like the band have created an hommage to the great bluesrockband from the sixties and seventies, but without copying them. Yes, the listener can hear hints of Led Zeppelin, The Free, Ten Years After, but the band does not copy them.

With "Head Down" the Rival Sons have added a strong rock(blues) record to the catalog of great rock(blues)records. Great guitarrifs, strong vocals, heavy songs, slow songs, intimate songs.It's all collected on this one. For example: the record opens with a rocking swinging 'Keep on swinging", to be followed by the rocking 'Wild Animal' to be continued with a fuzzy-heavy "you want to", followed by a swinging, faster "Until the sun comes down". "Jordan" is the gentle, subtle, sweet song, "true" the very naked, pure and intimate one. I think those are the tunes were singer Buchanan show his quality of singing by keeping his voice total in control within the contaxt of the songs.

"Head down" is the rock(blues) record that is going to keep your head up. A good one!

Good music should provoke some kind of an emotional response - sometimes this is sadness, reflection, or maybe even anger. Listening to this album however, evokes pure joy and I couldn't have kept the smile from my face even if I'd wanted to try. Somehow it never seems to take itself too seriously, while simultaneously veering far from the derivative self-parody of bands like The Darkness. There's a sense of determination about the album, from the opener 'Keep on swinging' with it's theme of fighting on against the odds and the pursuit of a dream in 'All the Way'. The band sound tight and focused, and yet the album buzzes with energy, bristles with power and blows you away in the sheer quality and diversity of music flowing into your ears. Whatever mood you are in, this will lift it, and although it's very early to say this, the light and shade and variety will keep it sounding fresh for months to come. Buy it. Buy it now.
