(Mint) Goddamn it's bluesy in here! But not bluesy like the Rolling Stones or Led Zeppelin fetishizing old black dudes while not really respecting them. This is its own thing, cliche free, not always sounding like typical blues, and always steamrolling. There are a lot of drum and guitar duos out there these days (they seemed to start forming before the recession made a small band seem more practical, but it sure was convenient) but I can't think of any that sound bigger and badder than this carrion chomping Canadian snowbirds. Best yet, they always get better, this album leaves the last mighty effort in the dust.
