I should clarify! I've come to Volbeat rather late, finding them on YouTube last year, via a friend. I've been buying the albums, starting with Outlaw Gentlemen, in the order I like them most and this is the 4th of the 4 that I've listened to that I've acquired. So, yes, it's their worst yet... And still worth 5* of course.

It starts with the usual Western-style slow intro (in this instance, as on OG / SL, a separate track) before ripping into Guitar Gangsters, and then moving through their usual repertoire of pace, power, bounce, energy, change of pace, slightly slower ballady / more sorrowful stuff. Bog-standard Volbeat - bloody good, in other words! Stand-out tracks for me are Still Counting and I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (which is a definite earworm), but frankly there's nothing duff or even filler-ish on the album. Buy it; it doesn't matter whether it's your first or last Volbeat album!

I bought the latest Volbeat album and have been working my way backward, and this is the webut akest of the three I have so far bought. Don't get me wrong, this is not a bad album, but rating it alongside outlaw gentlemen and shady ladies and beyond hell, above heaven it trails in a distant third. Clearly Volbeat are a massive band capable of class albums (outlaw gentlemen & shady ladies) and excellent performances whether they be live or in studio performances, but I cannot get excited about this release. It started promisingly enough with the title track on through "Maybelline" but seemed to stutter after that, even down to a rather drab cover of the Misfits "Still Counting". This is an album of two halves: unfortunately the second half is merely okay. Trust me: I've heard their later releases and they are a hell of a lot better than this and many a band would cut their arm off to release an album of this quality.

Volbeat is my favourite band and this CD is brilliant. I put it on while I air guitar around the house and while I am travelling to do some more awsome mountain biking. It just puts me in the best of moods. Oh yes.

A good, easy to listen to album. Also a fair introduction to what seems to be a less metal, more melody VolBeat - at first (if you're new to the band) the vocals may have a faintly annoying quality - this isn't a critique of the vocals but of the similarity of vocal style on the different tracks - bear with it, believe me, it grows on you.
