HEADSTONES-LOVE + FURY-“ESSENTIAL ROCK DESTINATION” REVIEW BY JOHN EMMS

ImageThe Headstones new album Love + Fury is the album that could save Rock from it’s miserable self.

In fact, if you never thought that intelligence and rock could fit together in the same sentence then you better make this album your essential rock destination.

Blasting off with the nasty groove of Tim White, and Dale Harrison with Trent Carr’s percussive compressed guitar attack Hugh Dillon smacks you upside your head with Change My Ways, and the killer single longwaytoneverland

It’s a dead centre hit..You better know it.

Far Away From Here and Don’t Follow The Leader prove that Hugh Dillon is the thinking man’s rock n’ roll front man while the band plunges riffs and stones you like a summer day in July.

Nothing can prepare the listener for Astronaught (correct spelling) the band’s most atmospheric song ever.

The sweeping cinematic lyrics and chord changes take you to a place that’s comfortable but not numb.

In fact, space commander Chris Hadfield may have a new theme song.

The band does a blistering version of  what sounds like  Abba’s S.O.S. before the killer stereo mix on Bin This Way For Years and the superb Leonard Cohen meets Coldplay vibe of Midnight Of This Life.

Not many bands could take 10 years off and sound so vital.

A must have album for any music fan who loves the fury of great rock n’ roll.

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, radio host and songwriter with Canada’s blues rockers THE SHAFTMEN.
