So I'm sitting here in what the Daily Mail would call "Terrorist Ice Hell" and I'm doing my daily jaunt round my preferred webshites when I suddenly notice that one of my favourite bands, the Black Rebel Motorcycle club have a new album out. So, I immediately buy the album and start to listen excitedly. On first impressions it's not a massive departure from their earlier releases (but that's hardly a bad thing - I'd have been surprised if this was a Machine Head soundalike disc) and it won't do much to win them new fans, but to my ears, this is a really good album. A solid 8/10.
Here's a sample.
