I bought CKY's album simply because a friend of mine had been banging onabout them for a while, so I thought I'd see what the fuss was about. Andthere was definately something to fuss about. This album is a brilliant offering from a brilliant band, who don't getnearly as much recognition as they should. 96 Quite Bitter Beings, one oftheir more famous tracks on this side of the pond, is amazing andcertainly deserves to be so famous. With an infectious riff, awesome drumbeats provided by Jess Margera (not Bam), and blow-you-away vocals fromthe vastly underrated Deron Miller, this is definately a song to look outfor. Shortly followed on the album by Rio bravo, another of my personalfavourites. This song is a stonker, the perfect follow up to a song like96... And the standard of music doesn't seem to waver at all throughoutthe course of the album. You'd think that opening with three of the bestsongs to grace my CD player in a while, that this would be a difficult actto follow. But follow they do, and they do it so well it's unbelievable.Human Drive-In Hi Fi is an amazing track, with a 'Shaft' feel that youwouldn't think would work, but it really does. And things stay amazingwith tracks like My Promiscuous Daughter and Sara's Mask. Though I was a little sceptical about buying this CD, I'm so glad I did.It offers a brilliant set, never dropping their standards once. A must buy for anyone who loves rock, and isn't scared of things that area little different.
