Top Customer Reviews
I Believe In A Called Love (Single Version)- Arguably the best song on their debut album, "Permission to Land", the single version is just a little different from the album version. In my opinion, it's better than the album version. The guitar part at the beginning of the song is louder, and the "Ahhh ahhhhhhhh" background vocals during the bridge are a little louder and crisper. But either way, it still is a great song!
Makin' Out- Great track, all about what the title says. The opening has a definite "Thunderstruck" sound, a cool chorus, and an all around cool song. Definitely a Rocker.
Physical Sex- This song ROCKS. This track is not only one of their best b-sides, it's actually better than a lot of the tracks on the album! That's not discounting the album at all, which is phenomenal, it's just that the song is that good. From the opening to the chorus ("Fi Seh Cul SEHHHHHHHHHHHHHX!!!!), it's solid the whole way through.
This single is awesome, it's worth it just for Physical Sex alone. So have no fear, order the single, and be swept away by the magic of Rock!
"I Believe In a Thing Called Love" is a great song, and this version, a little different than the album cut is awesome. The real treat with this CD-single, however, is the b-sides (not available on the their album). They are great cuts. "Makin' Out" gets 5 stars by itself. When it started, I could've sworn it was AC/DC. This band is great, great fun--falsetto singing and all!
1. I Believe in a Thing Called Love- My favorite song from their debut album, "Permission to Land", it captures the Rock and Roll essence of The Darkness. Great riff, with Justin Hawkins' wailing vocals carrying the awesome music.
2. Makin' Out- Hard Rocking song about, well, making out. Great lyrics, with some definite AC/DC inspired guitar work. It's a down and dirty Rocker.
3. Physical Sex- This song is one of The Darkness' best songs. It's better than a lot of the songs on their album, it's that awesome. Great Rock riffs, plus some of Justin's best lyrics, with an awesome chorus, "Fi Seh Cul (...)!". The notes he hits on this song proves not only that God exists, but that he also likes Rock and Roll.
4. Out of My Hands- Pretty song, definitely the softest on this single. It's happy and moving, Darkness all the way.
This single is a must have for any fan of The Darkness, or any fan of Rock and Roll in general. Believe it!
Also have to say that the the title track is very different from the album version in the arrangements.

This band sucks. They hail from the dead 80's genre of hair metal. I can't believe people buy this crap, because so much good music is slipping under the radar while this gets... Read morePublished on February 25, 2005 by strider202
That's right, this is their best single and it's got 2 stars. I SORTA like the song, but it gets old after a while. That's all I have to say.Published on August 12, 2004 by Pete
This song (I belive in a thing called love) is terrible. I guess that the guitar is half-way decent, but you can't hear it over his wailing. Read morePublished on June 16, 2004 by Y-DiggidyDog
Anybody who says this song (I Belive In A Thing Called Love) is a great song and that the Darkness are good is an idiot. The guitar is OK, but you can't hear it over his wailing. Read morePublished on June 16, 2004 by Y-DiggidyDog

Outside of the ls's falsetto (and Tiny Tim has original provenance over that) this band does nothing even remotely interesting or unique. Read morePublished on April 3, 2004
