Artist: The Heavy
Song: Don’t Say Nothing
Album: The Glorious Dead
I must admit, I really like this band. They have this kind of dark, grunge/rock/blues sound to them which my ears heavily favor.
They put out an album in 2009 called “The House That Dirt Built” (it had that hit “How You Like Me Now?” on it from the movie, The Fighter). I was working in the old music store at the time and a friend recommended the album to me. I liked the whole album, almost right off the bat. They have a really cool sound and were not scared to play around with it. The songs on this album ranged from a little western to more rock, to blues, high tempo, low tempo, and I enjoy them all.
Here we go for round 2; will it beat the sophomore curse?
Answer; yes and no. This is a good album and they’ve stuck to their grungey rock sound, they just didn’t seem to play around with different sounds as much as they did in their 2009 release, which is really the only complaint I have about it. I understand the first one was a “sampling” album, but I liked all of the different spins on their music, which still held on to their essential sound and played fluidly from start to finish.
