Listen all you miserable grunge rock listening bunch of zombies...wake up! buy Permission to Land, stick it in your Hi-fi, and breathe some much-needed life into your dead souls!!!
The band is simply awesome. Influences from Queen, Zepplin and yes...even SPINAL TAP can be clearly seen, but they do NOT imitate them. The falsetto voice of Justin Hawkins is marmite, you love it or you hate it...if you hate it, turn off the cd, put on some staind and slit your wrists...there is no hope for you.
The guitar is a slap of nostalgia. I havent heard solos of that magnitude since Jimmy Page or Brian May! yes...i AM comparing it to them because its THAT DAMN GOOD...and whats this?? solos you ask o listeners of Limp Bizkit? they are lil' breaks in the music where the guitarist freaks out...understand??....good.
Its simple, Rock music was based on the foundations of fun, good times, and freak-out psychadelic fun!!...the Darkness, bless them, have brought this back!..."I belive in a thing called love" is abolutely awe-inspiring...when that song hits...you FEEL it...Bohemian-rhapsody-like. It will become a classic...trust me on this one..
In the immortal words of Mick Jagger..."I know its only Rock'n'Roll...but i like it!!!"....
You should to..
