First, let me just say that it's actually refreshing to hear a band with sax in this century. (I said "sax," you pervert.) It's enough distance from the 80s where they are allowed back in rock again. And in general, the album does feel like a great 80s throwback rock n roll attack.
For those of you who saw "throwback," groaned, and crossed this off your list, STOP. This album is what I always hoped The Stray Cats would turn in some day -- a blues-based rockabilly stomp. And Barrence... well, he's got the voice of an angel and a devil, all rolled into one. Simply ridiculous. That is worth the price of admission alone.
This is an album that is fun, has legs, and plenty of sax. (Creep.) I'll have to check out some of their back catalog for sure.
