I will start out that I really can't stand newer pop music. Hilary Duff, Backstreet Boys, N' Sync, all a tool for marketing and all sh*t. In fact, I think that it's pathetic that these people just want to cash in on young kid's hormonal rages.
Now, don't get me wrong, I am 13 years old. But my musical tastes are different. I like metal, hard rock, and some 80's pop/rock.
Looking at what I just said, you would understand why I like the Darkness. A band that goes back to 80's hair metal is better than the new metal sh*t that's out.
These guys are not a parody, but just four guys who are influenced by older musicians such as Queen, AC/DC, and Motley Crue.
Catchy songs, real musicians, and lyrics that just show that these guys want to have a good time. What else can you ask for?
Now, to quote a person online, "If you like The Darkness, then you are a poseur."
Well, I guess that if liking a band that just happens to play music you like makes you a poseur, than I must be ultra-poseur.
All in all, if you like 80's hair metal bands, Queen, or AC/DC, this is the perfect album.
