Biography

When Southampton's Band Of Skulls played a sold-out gig at London's Forum in October 2010, it was a performance befitting a band honed by two years of constant touring, their sun-kissed melodies sweeter than ever, their riffs heavier and dirtier.. "In our minds, our first album [2009's debut album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey] was quite an intimate little record," says ... Read more in Amazon's Band of Skulls Store

Editorial Reviews

2012 sophomore album from the British rockers. By the time they reached Rockfield, the legendary residential studio in Wales, the band were primed to road-test the new material, playing a handful of US dates in a break from the album sessions. A performance at the Bonnaroo festival went on to shape the album's character. "The new songs went down so well there we decided to incorporate some of the mistakes and mishaps into the studio versions," says Marsden. "We had Ian [Davenport, returning producer] jumping on top of our Fender amps to recreate one bit where the reverb was crackling and making weird noises. All the gear still had the dust and mud on it from the festival, so the dirt was there: a bit of filth from the road that made it onto the record."

Customer Reviews

As a whole, the sound is very similar.

Saw live, great music to drive to and to share with friends or at a party.
Vidalina P. Arthur-snead
Then there's the great guitar tone and effects... throughout.

After such an amazing debut album it would have been easy to do Baby Darling Doll Face Honey partII. Instead, in Sweet Sour we witness the brilliant evolution of an amazing band. This is what rock 'n' roll was meant to be.

Best album of the year so far, ingredients: little bit of Jack White / Smashing Pumkins / Led Zeppelin / Beatles - fresh new sounds, strong brew, great guitar-sound.

Being a huge fan of their debut album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, I have been eagerly anticipating this release and I can happily say I'm pretty keen on it. It's a little more on the softer side than the first album, so my only gripe would be that I found myself from time to time missing that harder bluesy southern edginess that got me hooked initially. But every band has to keep moving forward, it feels like a logical progression and after a few plays I'm equally addicted to it.

I've seen them in Williamsburg (w/ Whigs and 22-20s) and they were f'n epic, going to see them in Boston next month and expect to be blown away again. Grab this album, you won't regret it, and don't miss these guys live if you get the chance.

UPDATE: Just saw them last night, they crushed it, played so many songs and sounded great.

Something has been missing all these years and its Band Of Skulls. Having enjoyed a few tracks from their debut release Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, I heavily underestimated what this English band would become. Now on my third listen of the day, and sixth overall, I can't stay away from this recording. The first three tracks have hooks that brand themselves in your head, so stimulating, my seven-month old was keeping up with the hooks.

Some of the most prestine moments of this release are the breaks, bridges and cuts. So phenomenal, track two, "Bruises", has an exquisitely sharp and hard edge. "Lay My Head Down" slices up a warm slice of their sound and feeds it gently. "The Devil Takes Care Of His Own" has a groove-laden funk and grunge about it. Fits well for those fans of White Stripes. Then of course, there's the lead single. That signature BOS confidence and energy peels through each bar. "Sweet-Sour/Sour by the minute/But you're sweeter by the hour". Top it off with a full session of five-star guitar solo mirroring that of Zep or Floyd. "You're Not Pretty But You Got It Goin' On" has this massive bees buzzing backbone and a near Muse/Radiohead feel as the song nears it's finality.

Songs like "Navigate" nail down the softer-side of Band Of Skulls. At the same time, very up-tempo, melodramatic, nearly Americana-like Emma Richardson at a sultry pace. "Hometowns" picks up where "Navigate" left off, but "Lies" revisits the funk of "Sweet Sour", the lead single. Quite truthfully, what surprised me is just how clean and tactfully slow these cats can be. A carefulness that is not common, nearly like a Radiohead-type patience in the closer "Close to Nowhere".

A lot more calm than the first album was but this is an extremely well made album from start to finish. I enjoy what both vocalists bring to the table. If you like baby darling dollface honey you will like this album. Different sound and feel to the album, but both albums stand alone perfectly. I can't wait for more from them.

I'm a huge fan of these guys. Currently one of my favorates from an exhausting pallet of musical tastes.

Has anyone bought the actual CD? and are the lyrics printed in the insert by chance?
I'm dying to know the lyrics to "LIES". None of the lyrics on the internet are correct, this much I know. There's two interpretations circulating and they're copy/pastes of eachother. Neither are right; specifically the first two lines in the first verse.

If theres lyrics, I'll buy the album just for that reason. Even though I've already bought digital versions of all three albums..

So the title song Sweet Sour is on the current radio rotation on a number of stations and it was enough for me to look into the band. I listened the 30 second blurb you get and it was enough for me to get the album. When I went to get the album I saw that their first album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey was also available and got them both at the same time. This band is so incredible it blows me away. Every song is different enough that it does not sound like you are just listening to an album but a playlist of artists on shuffle. I have listened to these two albums so many times it is not even funny. I play them at work, in my car, as ring tones, and everywhere I am I tell people about them. If you are even thinking about it, stop thinking and just do it. When you do it don't forget to get Baby Darling Doll Face Honey at the same time.
