Previously known for blasting out riffs reminiscent of the Stooges and the Sex Pistols, BRMC have bounced back from being dumped by Virgin by making a mostly acoustic album drenched in echoes of classic folk, blues and gospel. Unplugging the electric guitars hasn't led to any loss of power, since the band's own production has made every track feel full and beefy.
