With “Let It Ride” it’s the same like many other records: after a satisfying first half, the song material gets a little bit weaker, because you’ve heard all the song ideas within the first five songs and after that there isn’t much left to explore. Maybe the whole thing would have been more interesting with more balls in the sound. Nevertheless I’ve to admit that Darkhorse manage it very well to give you a feel good vibe and if you need an album which takes you away from everyday life this is an insider tip for you!
There’s no reason why the band cannot be mentioned in the same breath as H.E.A.T, Eclipse and other top drawer peers from Sweden. All that remains now is to see them live and that can be done when they return to the UK on February 4th at the Barfly in Camden with Mia Klose.
