    For some reason it seemed to become very fashionable to hate on The Darkness, probably after I Believe In a Thing Called Love became astronomically popular and overplayed. Nobody can deny that this is just a totally awesome balls-to-the-wall no-nonsense classic rock album.

    This album can be resold as "Very best of The Darkness"!

    If they reform, I hope they make another album like this. But I'm not sure it will be possible to top it :|

    А ведь отменный альбом! Как оно всё звучит-то цепляюще и на одном дыхании воспринимается! Гедонизм в чистом виде)) "Toching you,toching you.." - поёт Justin Hawkins в "I Believe in a Thing Called Love".. Наиприятнейший,временами лиричный,временами буйный да шаловливый хард-рок играют сии позеры,но они молодцы! Сквернословя и глупо выглядя,они остаются молодыми и играют открыто. Тот самый нестареющий музон,на котором вырасли наши родители) Братья Янги;каскады струй струн а-ля Brian May;нервические "цеппелины" в "Stuck In A Rut " и "Love on the Rocks With No Ice". К сладкоголосому вокаллу лично я привык очень быстро,просто он красив,под каким соусом его не подашь.Да,заключительная баллада на мой взгляд очень уж стандартна,и вокал соответственен. А если вернуться к практически гранжёвой и истошной "Get Your Hands Off My Woman"? Как вам тут мальчишка Хокинс? Очень хороший хард. И это конечно ещё и глэм,но как без него,если это "The Darkness"?
