A fine fine come back album by The Darkness(now supporting on Tour none other than the mistress of Pop,Lady Gaga)...typical TD sound and songs..."Forbidden Love" is my fave but add to that "With A Woman","Keep Me Hangin' On","She's Just A Girl Eddie" & "I Can't Believe It's Not Love"(B/T)... ...87/100

Breaking NEWS... The Darkness on tour with Lady Ga Ga. Shouldn't that mean the penalty of 'DEATH' by a Heavyharmonies Firing Squad? Rick, any update on the justin bieber tour? The Darkness feel the need to beat a dead horse with their rip off of Spinal Tap (minus the humor)using the exact same jokes Christopher Guest made in the 80's. The riffs are loud and the high-pitched(nuts in a vice) vocals/harmonies are as over the top and exaggerated as the generic lyrics. Remember what the Darkness sounded like almost a decade ago? Thatís what The Darkness one trick pony sound has evolved to on Hot Cakes. The band tries to set themselves up to be immune from criticism with this side-show schtick. After all, if they are making fun of 80's excess in hard rock, then won't pompous music critics(who most always HATED 80's metal/hard rock) love them and put T.D. on tour as trained spandex monkeys? A Radiohead cover?(that's 80's rocker blasphemy)

Hot cakes? Steaming turd more like. But then again that could be said of any of their albums. What we have here is a talented bunch of musicians (Stone Gods were awesome) who only get any recognition because of the talentless monkey on vocals who people thought was a novelty for all of five minutes when the debut album came out. This is one band that really shouldnt have reformed, but sadly Stone Gods never gained the recognition they deserved, and Hot Leg was another pile of shit.

This album was a bit of a dissapointment. The riffs are as strong as the debut, the vocals are the same as they were on the debut but the trouble is that the songs lack the energy, spark and hooks that made the debut stand out. Because of this, the vocals sound even more out of place than they did on the debut. The songs are still very well played though but no song stood out for me in particular. The Radiohead cover is completely horrible. I detest Radiohead and all the rubbish they've thrown into the world and I almost equally hate their pretentious fanbase who seem to believe that anyone who doesn't like Radiohead merely don't understand them. It just sounds so out of place on here and the vocals are atrocious and worse than Thom Yorke's ever were. That said, Nothin's Gonna Stop Us and Forbidden Love are stand outs. I hope in their next release they can capture the sound of the debut better.
