Amoeba Review

Joanna Ricco 05/26/2010

So maybe you shouldn’t have rampant sex. So maybe you should keep your nose clean. So maybe you should practice more humility. Eh, not if you ascribe to the laws of The Darkness. All-too-easily disregarded as joke rock due to their plainly Judas Priest, Queen and Van Halen derived sound—not to mention their glam-gratuitous stage personas—The Darkness were shirked off as a novelty and (perhaps because of it) were short-lived. But one thing’s for sure—it wasn’t from a lack of talent. Permission to Land (2003, Atlantic), the debut full-length for the English band, is a campy, hedonistic frolic through rock and metal’s most lush times. The quasi-hit “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” has the requisite hair-metal falsetto as supplied by vocalist Justin Hawkins (impossible, really), and an anachronistic (yet brilliant) guitar solo. “Love on the Rocks with No Ice” is a bit sludgier than most of the tracks, but maintains prototypical signature Darkness elements—falsetto, sex, wild guitar. Permission granted. Read More
