This album will remind you what great rock music sounds like...at a time when terrible pop music rules the radio.

I was skeptical of how 'good' a new Darkness album would be after the long hiatus/breakup and after reading a few early reviews leading me to expect a lackluster third album...but thank goodness it was all a bad dream:).

For the record, I am a huge fan of The Darkness. Permission to Land is one of my favorite albums. I think One Way Ticket to Hell and Back is an amazing album too (for different reasons), but it missed the mark in many aspects. I really enjoyed the Justin Hawkins solo efforts, but I was worried about a "reunion" album/tour.

I've only had a chance to listen to the album once through (it was just released this morning)...but so far, I loved it instantly, which is a VERY good sign for me. Even at 15 tracks (get the .mp3 album and you get four more songs!), the time flew by. Time will tell if I enjoy it as much as Permission to Land, but it certainly has potential. I do agree with the reviewers who said it is basically more of "The Darkness" so you know what you're getting, but it feels like the band has found the perfect mix between the sounds of their Permission to Land and One Way Ticket albums. If you didn't like The Darkness before, this album won't convince you either, but for those of us who do, they've given us a fantastic album and it is SO much better than I expected. At $7.99 (as of 8/21/12) for the 15 track .mp3 album, it is a steal so do yourself a favor and get it!

UPDATE (08/23/12) - I've had a chance to listen to the album many times now and I can say that while I still prefer the superior 'Permission to Land' (which would be hard to top, let's be honest), Hot Cakes comes a close second and feels like a great sequel to that album.

After a lengthy lay-off and some side projects from all corners The Darkness are back. After a solid weeks listening I feel I'm able to give an appropriate review. I see some reviews here posted the day of or the day after the release and this isn't an album that grabs you straight away.

Should they have bothered? Of course they should have.
Have they triumphed? Kind of

One Way Ticket has been my favourite of the two Darkness albums so far. I loved the Queen influences and it was a perfect mix of rock and pop.

Permission To Land, for me, was a great album but some of the songs didn't hit the mark for me - Black Shuck and the two `Love...' ballads. This album was supposed to be a return to that rawer sound but to me it doesn't sound like PTL at all.

With Hot Cakes we find The Darkness in a mature, reflective mode, which for The Darkness, isn't necessarily a good thing. Not that it's a bad thing either. Bands mature and change sound but in doing so rarely exceed the likeability of their `old stuff'.

I very much wanted to love Hot Cakes and unfortunately I don't. It was never going to be better than One Way Ticket for me and I wasn't expecting it to be. I think what's missing here is a bit of that Darkness magic. Too often it doesn't feel like a Darkness album.
I could only give one track an A-. The bulk of the rest are B's and B+'s.

Many of the songs are often in the verse/chorus/verse/chorus/slow chorus/chorus format - which so many songs are this past decade. Throw in the odd uninspired guitar solo (there's nothing sounding remotely like Brian May on this one) and you have too many underwhelming songs. Maybe it's my own high expectations at fault.

For the band that loves the play on words, why not a review title that reflects it? The Darkness is one of the best rock bands around today. Thank goodness they got back together and released another album. The diversity of influences is greater here than their other two albums, even country / bluegrass and island sounds are in evidence! Hawkins' vocals still soar, and the songs never take themselves too seriously, and are a welcome relief from the whiny-ass "nu rock" that is thankfully being seen for the mistake that it is and slowly disappearing from contaminating my eardrums.

Can't wait to attend another concert! Hope they come this way soon.

As good as Permission to Land was, Hot Cakes is even better. Forget the awful cover picture, it's the music that matters, and on this one the Hawkins Bros. and company deliver. From the party anthem, "Everybody have a Good Time" to rockers like "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and "Every Inch of You", to the ballad "Living Each Day Blind" or their amazing hard rock cover of Radiohead's "Street Spirit (Fade Out)", this is a comeback album not to be missed, there is not a single moment of filler on the album. I saw these guys live in Nashville back in May, and they rock harder than ever, catch them on tour when they return to the States next year.
