This album is so intelligently fun. The flawless structure combined with the Australian
smoker-vocals produce a sound that contains everything I look for in an album: passion,
innovative songwriting (with a catchy, traditional rock style nonetheless), and insightful
lyricism. This is my slightly louder version of the impact I get from NMH, if that makes any
If you're into Australian music at all, no doubt you've heard great things about the Drones. Just in case you've never listened...they're all true.
With their fourth record, the Drones continue on the warpath with a passive-aggressive undercurrent omnipresent throughout the album's entirety. From the electric alt-country stomp of opener "Nail it Down" or the emotional shipwreck of "Careful as You Go", the raw howls of frontman Gareth Liddiard accompany his magnificent lyrical imagery to a t. It's very difficult to pinpoint exactly what drives the band musically, but there is no doubt that the band are already off to a flying start in becoming one of the greatest Australian bands of all time.
