For anyone that wants to see randomness, floating fish, singing pizzas, dancing goblins, rubber duckies, psychedelic dogs, and Thomas the train, well this show is for you.
With a belly full of grog and a parrot on my shoulder to record the conversation, we sail the seven seas in search of a rowdy, raucous, rambunctious bunch of ne’er do wells that go by the collective name of Alestorm.
Sunset on the Golden Age is an excellent album which is equal parts familiar and surprising. It delivers the typically fun pirate tunes fans have come to love and expect from the band, while also showing them add more of a dynamic and epic sound to their music. I’m hoping the name proves to be wrong, though: Hopefully this will be looked back on in the future as the dawn of a golden age for Alestorm.
it’s certainly an improvement over the band’s second offering and is absolutely a step in the right direction. The attempts at seriousness that the second album showed are all but gone here and replacing them is a whole heap of piratey goodness where rum and shipwrecks are the main menu mixed with a few really funny moments as well…
