Editorial Reviews

2014 release, the third album from the British rockers. The album was produced by veteran knob-twiddler Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds). The band had a successful year back in 2011 with their sophomore album, Sweet Sour, hitting the charts at #14 which catapulted them on a worldwide tour sharing a stage with Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, The Dead Weather and Muse as well as sold out headline London shows at The Roundhouse and Brixton Academy. Himalayan includes the first single 'Asleep At The Wheel'.

Format: Audio CD
3rd album from British band who play crunchy-hard, diverse guitar rock with some
sharp, blistering fretwork. The songs are clever & muscular, with some surprising twists & turns
that always churn within the rock ‘n’ roll arena. There’s a developed sense of gritty blues rock
that integrates smoothly into melody-structured near-pop songcraft. The band covers a lot of
ground here and, although you’re never sure what the next song will sound like, it’s always a
cohesive, ear-pleasing piece of rock ‘n’ roll music. Tough to describe, easy to listen to. Recalls a
variety of bands: The Kills, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the Duke Spirit, White Stripes, Tango
Alpha Tango, Led Zeppelin, the Clash, Free Energy, Palma Violets.

First on the packaging: Its one of the best packed records I have. Its a gatefold sleeve with glossy texture and the artwork (especially on the gatefold) is stunning. Its a 2xLP with 3 songs on each side. One of the inner sleeves has a picture of the band and the other has lyrics. Not 180gram or pressed at 45RPM however, which was a missed opportunity.

If you like the heavier sounding BOS (Patterns, The Devil Takes Care of His Own) this is a perfect album. The first 6 songs are the best with the highlights being Nightmares and Brothers & Sisters. The other half isn't bad, just hard to follow up the first half. Overall, its not a good as their debut, BDDFH, but its a step up from Sweet Sour. I'll have this one in constant rotation for a while.

Band of Skulls seems to have gotten the chance to further experiment and expand their sound with Himalayan. It does still have the unique Band of Skulls hard-hitting parts but also has more complex vocal harmonization, musical tones, and interesting rhythms. At first this new BOS sound took some getting use to but I have found that each time I listen to this album I like it more and more. I have to say that I think the Band of Skulls is one of the most under-rated bands of today. I also find it funny that most of the so-called "music critics" (which is another word for talent-less, miserable, hacks that can't play or write music, but somehow think they can critique it) hate this and the BOS past albums. I have found that if the music critics losers hate it then its probably going to be a great album. Anyway, enough about that...Himalayan goes perfect with the first two BOS albums. If you are a BOS fan, you'll love it.

It's a bit of a change from the first two albums but doesn't disappoint. It's slightly more poppy than before but not too pop sounding in my opinion. Its still the Band of Skulls we know and love with heavy guitar, blending vocals and smooth drums.

Band of Skulls is an English rock band from Southampton consisting of composers/musicians: Russell Marsden (guitar, vocals), Emma Richardson (bass, vocals), and Matthew Hayward (drums). Their third studio album Himalayan opens with Asleep at the Wheel, which starts with a driving beat leading to a catchy riff reminiscent of something you might hear from Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi. Is the song about driving upstate, or is it a metaphor of our society (`cause where we are going is anyone's guess)? Marsden and Richardson harmonize well together as well as being strong lead vocalists. Drummer Matt Hayward has clockwork timing and his rhythmic design is very pleasing to the ear and combines with the guitar/vocal lines beautifully. He composes to the song, not just marking time. Other highlights: I Feel Like Ten Men, Nine Dead and One Dying has a Doors feel and is picturesque music like driving through a desert, Get Yourself Together has a sound that is reminiscent of STP. The singles from this mix so far are: Asleep at the Wheel, Hoochie Coochie, and Nightmares. All songs included are hits with no disappointments.

In a nutshell: Beautiful melodies, sweet harmonies, driving rhythms, catchy riffs, with no song sounding like another, yet all songs have the BOS feel. If you enjoy Paul McCartney, Black Sabbath, Stone Temple Pilots, or The Dead Weather, I urge you to take a listen. Also listen to their first and second studio albums, Baby Darling Doll Face Honey and Sweet Sour.

Carry on strong. There's some great work here. For instance, Cold Sweat is haunting and sets a mood... then stresses that mood with a shrill rift... (kinda like a cold sweat). Probably the longest title ever in Ten Men..., but they pull it off. Different enough to be a new album, similar enough to be unmistakably BoS. Can't wait to see them in Columbus.

I'm a big fan of this band, so am biased, but after listening a couple times I think this is my favorite of their albums.

Have always enjoyed Band of Skulls. Liked this album first time through, but have grown to love it as I listen more. No other album I have heard this year even comes close to as good song for song as this one. Would not only recommend it, but would say it is a must have for ant alt rock fan.
