Boomkat Product Review:
Big Ned's debut single 'Bad Angel' suggested a blend of Gallon Drunk's swamp rock and Nick Cave's thorniest early work, and the Glaswegian duo's album follows up on that promise with more of the same. Interesting abstract instrumentals brighten up the LP, with 'So Humid', 'Scarmonica' and 'The Big Sky' all sounding appealingly intoxicated with effects, but the actual songs tend to repeat themselves somewhat, too often full of over-annunciated vocals dirge-like blues. There are certain highlights such as 'Spoiled Rotten' which most accurately approximate the Bad Seeds sound, but elsewhere the likes of 'Ambition' flounder due to silly American accents and duff lyrics. A further note: having recently heard the year's worst cover version (Christian Naujoks' irredeemable mauling of Dylan's 'It's All Over Now, Baby Blue') I now find myself greeted by a potential number two. 'Paint It Black' would make for an interesting, Wolf Eyes-lite re-reading of the Rolling Stones classic were it not for the Alabama 3-esque vocal, but sadly it doesn't quite hold together.
