Flash Lightnin' Flash Lightnin'
With most of the ten songs clocking in around three minutes in length, it's beneficial that Flash Lightnin' quickly establish an up-tempo pace and keep it for the entirety of the album, so as not to let the steam out too quickly. It's a sweaty, beer-swillin', raucous time, with electric guitars maxing to the drum slams and Darren Glover's raspy voice. It's fast-paced, in your face, loud rock. Through obvious comparisons include anything to do with Jack White's fascination for blues rock, there are actually some moments that call to mind something closer to Broken Social Scene, such as on the combination of "You Gotta Mouth" and "No Sympathy," where the crew get more in touch with a live crowd-feel via horns and added vocals. But the rest of the album focuses on how the electric guitar drives things upwards and then lets them fall. Don't miss out on this Toronto bolt. (Pheromone)
