Amoeba Review

10/17/2018

Greta Van Fleet’s profile has risen steadily since last year’s breakout single “Highway Tune,” to the point that they’ve been hailed as everything from the next Led Zeppelin to the saviors of rock and roll itself. Hyperbole? Well, yeah, of course. Rock and roll is not in need of “saving,” in this year or any other, nor does anyone need another Led Zeppelin; there’s already one, and most would agree they’re pretty damn inimitable. Now is there merit behind these bold proclamations? Undoubtedly. With their slightly obtuse name and Stranger Things-worthy album artwork, Greta Van Fleet have tapped into an ephemeral artery of visceral, immediate gratifying hard rock music that hasn’t been satiated since the days of Wolfmother. Songs like “When The Curtain Falls” and “Lover, Leaver” maintain that subtlety is boring and stack howling vocal performance over flashy riffs and solos, while “You’re the One” and “Anthem” offer mellow, acoustic-led balladeering filled with sunny, hippie-fried sentiment. Yes, thanks to the uncanny, eerily Plant-like voice of lead singer Josh Kiszka, Greta Van Fleet remind a lot of Led Zeppelin, but these songs and riffs suggest a heavy absorption of Rush’s Fly By Night or AC/DC’s High Voltage as well. No, the '70s aren’t back, but a bit of that cavalier spirit lives on thanks to Anthem of the Peaceful Army.
