Before Dark Clouds
- Review by Pistol Pete
It's not often an album of this quality is released and passes under the radar of most of the blues / rock press . I first heard the track ‘Before dark clouds’ on a digital radio station.
I was intrigued by the quality of the song and the fact I'd never heard of them before ! The 5 piece band have been building a reputation on the live circuit for a while .
The album kicks of in great fashion with the foot stomping track Brand new low leading into the second track the bluesy rocker ‘Another Kind of Bad’ . Kenny Wayne Shepherd springs to mind.
Track no 3 is where things become interesting , the Free/ Bad Company influenced title track. You could imagine Paul Rodgers singing.
More straight forward blues/soul follows fitting perfectly with the mood of the album .
So to the piece de resistance of the album ! Austin Gold’s very own Sloe Gin , Home ain't Home with a spellbinding finale .
The rest of the album follows a similar pattern with strong blues rock songs with a hint of Pink Floyd about them !!
I can highly recommend this album . There is absolutely no filler .
