It's all here; the elements of raw emotion, poetic observation, exceptional musicianship, driving, tribal, caveman rhythms, soaring lead guitar, impassioned melody, thick grooving basslines, rich wistful harmonies, and a heartbreaking palette of strings, keys and horns, animating perennial tales served up on tasty, tasty hooks".
