Bring 'Em In, Mando Diao's 2003 debut, cut the hard swing of 1960s British R&B with a raw edge comparable to the Strokes or Hives. It had the best influences from the past and all the zing of 21st century rock & roll; it was fun, but that was about it. Released in 2005, Hurricane Bar lands in a similar place. The voices of co-frontmen Björn Dixgård and Gustaf Norén are still a force -- Dixgård's throaty and clear, Norén's a beery yell -- and there's an eagerness in the band's playing that keeps Mando Diao's tunes bright and foot-tappable.
