‘Beat To Hell’ is a dirty gritty kick ass opener. The bands little bit of AC/DC’ness is still apparent but not as obvious as, let’s say Airbourne. Tracks like ‘Other Side’ and ‘Bad Decisions’ are slower stomping numbers, the latter with a layers commercial sounding chorus.
A nice little old school 70s & 80s sound reverbs around the whole album, but not enough to make the band sound dated. Youthful enthusiasm abounds throughout a very good album, which is possibly better than the bands last good album, ‘Whatever Gets You Off‘.
The album sometimes wanders off to mix some bluesy riffs in with a sleazy swagger, but always keeping it good time RnR. The only real let up is on my favourite the bluesy slowly strutting ‘It Isn’t Easy’ and the ‘Good Night’.
