Their worst yet...
on 6 May 2015
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!
