The guitars are big and crunchy, the low end laid down by Taylor and Poullian delivers a nice kick without sounding to muddy or booming and of course Justin Hawkins’ signature falsetto is soars above it all.
Jimmy Cliff is known for that lyric “I Can See Clearly Now Lorraine Has Gone….”
Any band with a track called ‘HEX’ after our UK Editor has to be a good thing!
This sounds so good that if it doesn’t become an example of a modern metal masterpiece then I shall start listening to Justin Beiber
‘The Real Deal’ really smacks of a southern blues version of old time Whitesnake …..simply glorious and probably my favourite from the whole album.
First impressions of this album are pretty good being previously unfamiliar with both ‘Ween’ and the ‘Dean Ween Group’.
This album is engaging…..imagine owning your own hideaway in the Hollywood Hills and you have invited all your beatnik musician friends from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s
Gill’s songwriting, guitar playing and impressive vocals along with Hannah and Heather’s instantly recognisable rhythm section has produced a winning formula
This isn’t a comedy record but it is a knowing record. It’s aware, conscious of what affects us in day to day life.
Atmospherically nightmarish …but in a good way!
