Garagey mod-rock with heartfelt vocals. Sorta sounds like a punked-up version of Ted Leo’s old band, Chisel. You know on “I Can See for Miles” when Pete Townsend lets his chords ring out and Keith Moon goes nuts doing rolls and fills? Call Me Lightning does that in every song. For the whole song. I don’t think the guitar ever hits more than two notes per measure. It gets exhausting. It’s like listening to someone revving an engine for forty minutes. Just go, already.
