Scotlands most Hotly-tipped band release debut album: We could say they have the attitude of the early Stones, the songs of the Beatles and the radio-friendly hooks of The Monkees all wrapped up in a battered leather jacket with 2006 spray-painted on the back.
We could tell you that last year they opened for The Zutons, The Proclaimers, The Paddingtons, The Kings of Leon (at the SECC); Goldie Lookin Chain, performed storming sets at T in the Park and sell-out headline shows for King Tuts in Glasgow and Alan McGees Death Disco in London.
We could mention that MOTEL is uber-melodic guitar rock distilled into 36minutes of music so infectious it will have the dead tapping their feet, but well let other people bang on about them instead:
"Don't Leave Me Hangin" "Bolt the Doors" and "Never stop love" are future classics. -- Tony Gaughan, THE SUNDAY MAIL ****
"The Ronelles are amazing" -- Alan McGee, Poptones / Death Disco
Fresh - hits the target every time. You'll not hear a better, more consistent debut this year. 9/10. -- Ian Fortnam, Classic Rock magazine
I KNOW what the future of rock and roll is. Theyre from Glasgow, theyre called The Ronelles. -- Dominik Diamond, THE STAR
The Ronelles' storming, 14 songs-in-36 minutes approach leaves you sated, breathless and just a little dazed. Recommended. 4 STARS -- James McNair, MOJO
The best band from this or any other era. -- Billy Sloan. RADIO CLYDE 1
the most surefire hit of a rock'n'roll package since Jet. -- THE FLY

...What a brilliant album! .. just jumps out the speakers, grabs you by the lapels and slaps you on the face. I've not a heard a better R'n'B album since Dr Feelgood's "Stupidity" ( that's proper R'n'B, by the way, not that homogenised, soft-focus pap they pass off as an excuse for soul music these days). Some old riffs, some new, but bucketloads of energy and swagger. "Don't Leave Me Hangin'" and "Turn Around" would both have made better singles than "Bolt The Doors", but I suppose it was a bit poppier and radio-friendly. "Magic Blues" and "Revelations" are fantastic book-ends for a great album.
I'm off to buy some new boots and a leather jacket.
Worth every pennies!!
Each song seems to merge into one, even the couple of stand out moments get lost in the murk.
There's no point in taking a genre of music and instead of moving it forward just steal riffs left right and centre and throw in new lyrics. That's the impression this album gives.
Maybe the potential is there but I can't hear it.
I gave this album away to a mate who wanted it, even he doesn't like it... a shame.
