Smoke Notes

The Datsuns' third album firmly re-establishes the band as one of the world's best rock bands. After being feted as the "hottest act in the world" by the UK music press following their self-titled debut, and then suffering the inevitable backlash that followed their follow-up Outta Sight Outta Mind, the Cambridge lads have certainly learnt a thing or two about the music industry, and, thankfully, despite being thrown about by the ever-changeable moods of the UK music, have emerged from the experience with the desire, it would seem, to just make good music.
And good music it is: a classic collection of catchy, upbeat rock songs. And with no time for mucking about: four of the ten songs on the album come in at under three minutes, and the whole album is a couple of minutes shy of the forty minute mark. An album like they used to make them in the old days, you might say, and the boys certainly still seem to be mining their love of 70s rock, with plenty of overtones of Led Zep, The Who, AC/DC and Thin Lizzy creeping their way into the mix. Having said that, the Datsuns are at the same time continuing to expand the breadth of their sound - on top of the to-be-expected blistering guitar solos of Christian Livingstone and Dolf de Borst's rock'n'roll shrieks there's new layers of keyboards, slide guitar, and the band even get a little gospel in the epic 7 minute album closer 'Too Little Fire'.
This is far and away the best and most cohesive album The Datsuns have made yet - an LP from a band who have been honing their skills in front of some of the toughest music critics and crowds in the world for the last half decade, and who have come up trumps with an album destined to remembered as a kiwi rock classic. Highly recommended.
