I'll admit upon first listen of the album I wasn't a huge fan. "Ghosts" was one of my favorite albums of the past decade (seriously) and I was expecting those gay blades in the sophomore release.

Wells himself stated that he thinks "Savages" is the best song writing the blades have ever done and I'm not one to judge. The lyrics are beyond honest and powerful (the band went through some long tour stretches that certainly took its tole. Wells also lost someone close during those grueling months). A few songs are much more "pop" such as "Try to understand" and "burn and shakes". Trashy songs such as "rock and roll part I" and "too cool to quit" remind us of the gay blades we know and love.

At first listen the album seems to fall short. I can understand why some outlets have labeled the release as a weak follow up, or not up to par, but it's simply not the case. As an artist there is progression and savages is definitely an album of growth in the hopeful long career of The Gay Blades. No doubt some tears, whiskey, and spit grace the pages on which the songs were written. No, It's not as stunning as "Ghosts" but ask me in 5 years and I might say different.

My moneys on their third release shattering all expectations.

I'm very happy that I was turned on to this band. I was able to watch them perform at a small, intimate gig where they absolutely killed it. Instantly I knew I had to get this album and the one before it. These guys consistently get more and more play on my iPod every day. I'd honestly take them over The White Stripes or The Black Keys any day. "Mick Jagger" is one of the coolest songs I've ever heard. Another great highlight is "Rock and Roll." The entire album is a very solid record. I highly recommend it. These guys have so much swag, that the drummer's name is Puppy Mills. One of the coolest bands out there.
