Rock and roll that leans heavy on clean channel guitar? Studio slickness that doesn’t harm an album? Oh yes. The new Hives album, Tyrannosaurus Hives, rocks with the slick charm you’ve known for years, but were too scared to confront. Quick and to the point, catchy when needed, and even dipping into some electronical gadgetry, The Hives belt out a 12 song, 30 minute gem that drips with sarcasm, dry wit, and even hints of political jabbing.
The album is currently ranked 143 on Amazon.com, and there’s 60 new or used copies starting at $7.99 which is a good deal. Celebrate stripped down rock & roll and pick this up. Turn down the treble a bit to save your speakers, and do your best Mick Jagger impersonation while you listen.
Oh yea, enter this Hives contest and win a Vespa PX Scooter. How cool would that be?
