This review is refers specifically to the EDITED VERSION of this album.
***
Here's what you get when you purchase the clean version of "Permission to Land." First of all, the packaging is a bit altered. The naked lady is pixellated out. In the lower left corner of the cover, there's a clearly visible "Edited Version" label - always a good thing, so people who wanted the explicit version don't get any unpleasant surprises.
Now for the actual album content. I'm happy to say they went the extra mile here. They actually re-sung the dirty parts and used alternate lyrics, instead of simply scrambling or muting out the expletives. So, for example, in the song "Givin' Up," the phrase "givin' a f***" has been changed to "givin' it up." It's nice to hear actual singing, instead of just long silences. Some of the edits end up being quite amusing. Also in the song "Givin' Up," the line "stick that ****ing s***" has been changed to "Stick that shucking fit." On the album's opening track, the line "that dog dont give a ****... Woof!" becomes "that dog don't give a duck... Quack!" Instead of getting all whiny and political when the label requested a clean version, they just had some fun with it.
So in this case, you get exactly what you pay for when you buy the clean version. There are still a few drug references, so just be aware of that if that bothers you. But if you just want this album without the bad words, the clean version fits the bill very nicely - and does a far better job than most edited albums.

Open your hearts, minds, and ears! The Darkness are here and they are Rocking the planet! In an age where so-called "rock" bands are supposed to be depressed, uncharismatic, Kurt Cobain-obsessed whiners with no talent singers and no solo guitarists, The Darkness is rocketing through the universe on their spaceship spreading the gospel of Rock and Roll!!!! If you hate Rock and Roll, love angst-ridden teen torment drama pop punk, can't have a good time, and are too cool for school, please don't buy this album. BUT if you like smiling, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, KISS, Queen, Van Halen, and just good ole Rock and Roll, then this is a must have album.
Justin Hawkins has heaven-sent vocals that can shatter steel, vocals that bust through your speakers with the force of a 400mph hurricane wind. He has TALENT. And lots of it, with a stage swaggering bravado to reinforce it. His brother, Dan Hawkins, is bringing the solo back into style. Frankie Poullain delivers the booming bass lines and one killer mustache. Ed Graham gives us some great drumming, old style and Rocking.
The album is solid. Let's go through the tracks:
1. Black Shuck- HARD Rocker that kicks off an equally hard Rocking album. The song's about a demon dog from Hell attacking a church. It WILL rock you.
2. Get Your Hands Off My Woman- Great Rocker. Has a chorus you can't help but sing along with.
3. Growing On Me- Great grooving track, with some hopping solos.
4. I Believe in a Thing Called Love- My favorite song. You will be blown away by the full force of Justin's sonic scream! The title says it all. Great riff, great song.
5. Love is Only a Feeling- Get out your lighters, it's monster ballad time! Awesome solo, amazing song.
6. Givin Up- This one's a strutter!

While Nirvana may have been just what popular music needed in 1992, the long term effects of Kurt Cobain's influence have been devastating for the world of rock. Cobain made it okay for rock stars to be emasculated. They could be people who had issues and insecurities like the rest of us, and that was groovy... for a while. But isn't it high time for rock stars to act like, oh, ROCK STARS again? Frontmen like Jonathan Davis, Fred Durst, and Chester Bennington all lack the one essential trait any real rock'n'roller needs, and that is Confidence. Instead of rock gods, we've all been subject to rock peasants, guys who would nail themselves to a cross if their pants were too tight. Enough, already. Real rock stars are supposed to take what they want, do what they want, and answer to no one. They couldn't have all just vanished from the face of the Earth.
It's all gotten so miserable that the emergence of Andrew WK last year was a true breath of fresh air. Here was a guy who preached a simple edict that has been bafflingly lost on nu metallers: Rock is Fun. But for all his efforts, AWK was basically ignored. And so here are The Darkness to give it a second try.
Permission to Land is huge in England right now, which practically guarantees no one here will care about it. Regardless, The Darkness pretty much succeed in making an argument for a pop metal revival. And, more importantly, they inject some swagger back into the fold. For the first half of Permission to Land, they hand out fitting knockoffs of AC/DC ("Black Shuck"), Guns 'N' Roses ("Get Your Hands Off of My Woman," which has to be heard to be believed), Boston ("I Believe in a Thing Called Love"), and Tesla ("Love is Only a Feeling").
