Them Crooked Vultures album review


Them Crooked Vultures
*****
CD 88697 61936 2
Sony Music

Slightly preachy
Really sleazy
Slipping in the guts
Of those metaphors

It's fab, mad and bad
And Bolanesque in 'Reptiles'

Aslap of rockabilly in 'Warsaw or...'
70's musicals
And the speaky easy
It's rock and raw

Breadth and bravery
A mix-up of expectation
Understated stadium anthems
If you know what I mean

Hipslinging thrash
80's club before the raves
'Gunman' banging on the door
All the way there and back again

New fury, no jury
It's fab, mad and bad
Slightly preachy
Really sleazy
It's rock and raw

Try these vulture tracks for size:

New Fang
Reptiles
Warsaw or the First Breath You Take After You Give Up
Gunman
