TOP 500 REVIEWERon 23 July 2014
Each track is an average of about three minutes long, there are eleven numbers over a mere thirty-five barnstorming minutes, and Roger Daltrey sings Wilko Johnson`s songs heroically, like Joe Cocker on steroids or a cockney Howlin` Wolf. At times he sounds like a man possessed, like someone bursting out of confining ropes. But time was of the essence, as we know...
Only one song isn`t an original, and it`s a terrific version of Dylan`s 1965 single Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window (which I went out and bought on 45 when I was fourteen). Wilko`s recorded this before, but it`s great to hear Daltrey belting it out.
There are a couple of slower songs, but mostly the band - consisting of Wilko J on guitar, Dylan Howe on drums, Norman Watt-Roy on bass, Mick Talbot on keyboards, with Steve Weston making his presence felt on harmonica, especially on the titular opener, which gives notice that this set of r`n`b rockers is going to wake up the neighbours, and possibly the street. No need to 'play loud'. It`s all loud!
This is the best and most invigorating rock record I`ve heard since ZZ Top`s La Futura a year or two ago, and that`s high praise.
Rog hasn`t sounded this enthused in years, and as for Wilko: live long and keep rockin'!

Short and sweet, but this is the real thing.
