Whoah, it`s 7 O`clock, time for a party
on 15 October 2003
Woww[...] right, Coldplay, Muse and Radiohead fans look away now, you really aren`t going to enjoy this. Three chords, the truth, and a hell of a lot of fun, that`s this lot - the best band of the late 80s, in my opinion.
There`s basically two types of song on here - your fast cliched rocker (Sex Party, Long Time Comin`) and your slow ballad ("I Don`t Love you Anymore"), with a few in betweeners for variety. The chords are stock stuff, the vocals are laughably gravelly... but the songs are just so good!
The hell with irony, these guys make fantastic, gutsy, bluesy rock & roll and (thankfully) make no pretence about it. This, their first album of three, is by far their best - true to their roots and totally without artifice, simply real, gut wrenching, ball-grabbing, heart pumping rock & roll. Nothing remotely fancy, but if you can bear to dispense with the now obligatory irony factor, you will fall in love with this album just like I did.
