Album Review: Smoke & Mirrors by The Datsuns

Fairly Good, Based on 1 Critic

The Guardian - 60
Based on rating 3/5

In 2002, the fierce riffing of the Datsuns' self-titled debut saw them declared leaders of the so-called New Rock Revolution. But following the sophomore slump of their 2004 follow-up, Outta Sight/Outta Mind, interest has faded. That's a shame, because this third album is surprisingly lean, vibrant and enjoyable. The tone is set by the full-throttle garage-punk of opener Who Are You Stamping Your Foot For? From there, the album barrels through eight more short, sharp blasts of daft, good-time rock'n'roll.
