I want to put this as nicely as possible when I say I have filed this album under “whatevs.” Although I don’t do this often, I bought this album off a “tip” from a friend of mine who is no longer reputable. She said, “The Gossip are your new favourite band!” How could I pass that up for 10 bucks?

When I first put the album I was just oh so excited to hear my new favourite band. What could I be expecting here? Something new!! Finally!! What did I get? Another effing down south, “we play the tambourine in all our songs” band. Don’t get me wrong, this band is not jumping on what the critics describe as “rock and roll revival” bandwagon, they have actually been sitting on the back porch rocking this stuff for quite some time apparently. Rightly so as well, the band is originally from Arkansas. I just get a little bit frustrated when I try to find something new and it is just the same old shit, for lack of a better phrase.

Maybe I am being unfair. Rock and roll revival is so hot right now, and I bet a lot of its biggest fans would be eating this album up (Google for reviews). More so, I am sure that given the right circumstance, like if I hadn’t heard better versions of this type of band already, I may have thought this album was amazing and original. But how it stands, I wish I had downloaded some mp3’s before buying this one. I was a bit disappointed.
