Fourth album by this Danish band that is quite clear that everything has to revolve around the riff. In this pack of old rock wolves, Andersen has been with Glenn Hughes and Vandborg with Justin Hawkins, there is no place for pose, empty letters or colored spotlights.
The starter with «Dopamine» is a shot to your brain that leaves you dry with that irresistible Lynott-style swagger. «Hot blooded woman» repeats the scheme with a murderous bass and with slightly more modern brushstrokes that remind us of the American rock of the 90s. «Nervous Breakdown» has a vocal melody of those that are no longer made and on which the rest of the topic.
«Zero four» points to a hit single by having a touch as badass as it is right. «Going out» returns to simplicity before a hit like «Incoming», one of the best on the album for being rock without additives.
«Cut loose» can be a good single and it has a 70s touch that we love. «Freewheeler» exudes southern rock and is a halftime to savor at ease. «The rainbow» connects with the rock of the 90s once again, but adding a just touch of commerciality. «Welcome history» closes the album with wild power confirming that the band would adapt well to genres such as stoner rock. Brilliant nuanced album that won’t take long to surprise you. Highly recommended.
