Justin Hawkins Gets a Leg Up

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

"Most people view early '00s rawkers The Darkness as one big joke but that first album is a classic if you ask me and I still listen to it a lot. Every song on the album could've been a single, with giant hooks, great solos, and a suprisingly deft sense of humor. (It also had amazing outrageous videos.) It's follow-up, One Way Ticket to Hell (and Back), is what you'd have to call a Classic Coke Album, where bigger seemed better but, it was just bigger and not anywhere as good. But Permission to Land holds up."

To say that Stone Gods debut ‘Silver Spoons & Broken Bones’ is anywhere near as hotly-anticipated as their previous incarnation's (The Darkness’ ‘Permission to Land’) would be an outright lie, but in many ways it’s a bigger accomplishment.

P2L was a handful of fine tunes glued together by AOR, whereas this is an albumful of fine AOR glued together by fine tunes.
