If there are any fans of Spike or Frankie Miller who are on the fence regarding whether to get this album or not, then I would say to definitely buy it. The same goes for anyone with an open mind and an interest in quality songs played by some of the best in the business. Despite being a bit of a departure from my usual riff-filled listening, I thoroughly enjoyed this album, although, for me personally, I would have preferred a bit less of the country influence on some songs but that’s just me. If you appreciate that style of music then I imagine your rating would be even higher.
Something Clever is a band out of Charlotte, NC. They’ve been around a couple years now and have slowly moved from an alt rock sound to more of a modern hard rock/metal outfit. They’ve been on my radar almost a year now, with all intents of getting out and seeing them live. I managed to do that, ironically, for their CD release party for their latest offering Season of Darkness.
