Editorial Reviews

Their debut offers a taste of their driving guitar force, heartbreaking duets, and sun-kissed, wall of sound harmonies. Produced, recorded, and mixed by Ian Davenport (Supergrass, Badly Drawn Boy). Artwork by bassist/vocalist Emma Richardson. "Patterns" selected for Activision's Tony Hawk World Skate Game (out fall 2009). ESPN will use "I Know What I Am" in sports backgrounds. The song is also featured in the film "Whip It!" and the TV trailer for "I Love You, Man".

London debut combines glam/psych Indie garage rock with some hard-edged guitar and
distortion-damaged blues lines in a place where melody-strewn verses collide with rumbling,
riff-driven choruses. Hanging out somewhere among White Stripes, the Kills, Duke Spirit,
Queens Of the Stone Age, Black Keys.

Sounding like a cross between The Rolling Stones & The White Stripes, Band of Skulls is truly a product of the current alternative rock scene. They're brash, they have that dirty sound, and they're radio-friendly. But, the first thing you'll probably notice is that "Baby Darling Doll Face Honey" is truly a debut album. Every song has a different sound, and while they do share some common similarities, it feels like the band is feeling out the territory. As a result, it really feels disjointed. But the problem is, they're so good on most of the sounds. They do the dirty rock well, but they're also amazing at the slower ballads. Add to that the fact that they have duel vocalists, and there's a lot going on here. Most of it is pretty good, but not all of it works.

Highlights Include:
Light of the Morning
Death By Diamonds & Pearls
I Know What I Am
Honest
Cold Fame

Overall, if you're a fan of current alternative rock, then you should love what you find here. It sounds like a continuation of the White Stripes, and while they're unsure of their work at times, or what sound & style they should exactly be going for, if they did stay consistent, Band of Skulls really has something here. Heck, they casted off the song "Friends" which made it onto the New Moon soundtrack, and that's a great song. So if they're castoffs are that good, imagine the potential greatness of this band.

Great band, not a bad song on the album. I am really amazed that they are still relatively unknown. $5.99?! That is a great price for so much damn good music. If you like The Black Keys, or White Stripes, you will dig this! PLUG-Check out Dan Auerbach's new album too!

I wish to add my voice to the chorus of those who love this band. There are a lot of different and interesting things that are being done with rock, but I have not heard great and pure rock for a long time until this album.

I read that the bass player has over 15,000 albums - most vinyl - and this shows in their work as every song has a solid rock foundation, but does not ape their classic rock inspirations; instead Band of Skulls progresses rock.

So...

Great band, great vocals and harmonies, great solid music and they put on a great show.

This is one of the best albums I have heard in a long time! Not a bad track, stomping rock riffs, beautiful harmony's and catchy melodies. It just gets better and better with each listen.

I saw the band last year in a small club with about 100 people, it became obvious I was watching something very special. If there is anything right with the music industry, this band is destined for great things. Rock and Roll as it should be!

2009's Baby Darling Doll Face Honey is the debut album for Band of Skulls. With this release, the trio (made up of Matthew Hayward on drums, Russell Marsden on guitar and vocals, and Emma Richardson on bass guitar and vocals) showed the world their incredible skill at writing powerful rock songs.

Incredible and unique rock tracks like Light of the Morning and Blood, creative song-timing concepts as showcased in Bombs and Dull Gold Heart, and the rocking and driven slow (but only by comparison) songs such as Fires and Impossible. They set a standard, a bar, that most bands would be fearful (and most often incapable) of establishing, especially on a debut album.

If you love rock music, love to turn the volume up in your car every time a song you love comes across the radio, then you're in for a treat. You'll only have to reach for that volume knob once, my friend, because once this album gets going, you'll love every minute of it.

WOW! I hate predictable music. This is such a refreshing, inspired disc. I found it because of the Ford Mustang commercial. The ad featured 'Light of the Morning'. It's a great bluesy tune. There is simply NOT a bad song on this cd.
It reminds me of 11th Dream Day, Electrofixion, The Jets and Silversun Pickups. This is bright, complex and complete. What a find! Buy it Now.

If early Kings of Leon and the Robert Plant/Alison Krause duo had a baby it might look like Band of Skulls' debut album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey. While the Kings of Lame have recently descended to the typical cliched anthemic, stadium, throwaway lyrics, Band of Skulls have ascended to be what I consider the top blues rock/Americana album of 2009.

Nearly every song here is great, often for a different reason than the one before it. While the heavier songs (ie the first 3 tracks) rock more than anything that most bands in the same category have put out lately, it is surely the slower songs like 'Honest' that make this album. The female lead vocalist and male lead vocalist compliment each other wonderfully even on the all out rockers.
While most of the lyrics fit the music, the only downside to this album is sometimes the simplicity of the lyrics which, while not cliched, are not often very complex. Some songs are better than others in this regard... Set to a simple but catchy blues riff, 'Cold Fame' is an instant classic whose lyrics are thought provoking and show us just what Band of Skulls can do with words. Almost all the songs have lyrics that stick right away and might have you singing along at some point.

These guys have the power to save rock and roll (along with Jack White and his various sideprojects) from the other forms of lame alternative rock/metal that are usually played on rock radio today. Not that I want them to be on the radio, I'm just saying. Where has rock been in the past 5 years? I can name, on one hand, rock bands that were good in those 5 years. I give this album a solid 5 stars. Yeah I like indie alternative music but most of that is not rock and does not evoke the same foot stompin' feeling.
