Dancing About Architecture Reviews “Love and Let Die”
Dave Franklin is one of those who has a gift for reviews. He gets music. His colorful, insightful rhetoric sits alongside the great critics of rock — Lester Bangs, Greil Marcus, and Ryan Adams’ dear friend, Jim DeRogatis. From his review:
They’re a funky bunch and no mistake. There is a sweet spot which sits equidistance from infectious punky funk, old-school, low slung rock ’n’ roll and soulful, bluesy grooviness. Some bands get glimpses of it, are perhaps lucky enough to wander close to it before losing their way, never to return. Some mange to find their way to maybe two out of three of those collision points, which as we all know…ain’t bad. And then there are the lucky ones, the hallowed few bands and artists who are astute enough to be able to find just the right mix of sonic styles and musical moves to find their way into such hallowed ground. When they do, they will find The Stone MG’s already sat there looking as smug as hell. And well they might.
