I really like the last album I heard from The Earaches, which is probably how this ended up in my review pile. I don’t know what’s happened since then. It seems like they may have locked themselves in a room where they could only listen to the Rolling Stones and The New York Dolls, and added that to their earlier sound. The result? Not something I’m too fond of. What before was raw and driving, now just seems to fit the mold of every other throw-back rock band around right now. Too bad.
