THE STRUTS – PRETTY VICIOUS – ALBUM REVIEW
The world is a serious place right now, and inevitably the musical landscape follows trend. An awful lot of bands take themselves far too seriously these days and seem almost afraid to just let it all hang out and have a little fun.
It’s unlikely though that anybody has ever accused The Struts of taking themselves too seriously. Their incredible live reputation comes from the outlandishness of their performance and on record they are just as enthrallingly enjoyable!
WATCH ‘TOO GOOD AT RAISING HELL’ ON YOUTUBE
‘Pretty Vicious’ represents their fourth studio effort and perhaps acts as the truest testament of their personality. Opening with the all out ‘Too Good at Raising Hell’, the album sees the band wearing their collective hearts on their sleeves.
From all out rockers like ‘Do What You Want’ and ‘Rockstar’, to slower grooves like the title-track and ‘Bad Decisions’, the band really flex their songwriting muscles. The album almost feels like a band trying to prove themselves as more than just a great live act.
Ultimately there can be no doubt that the band are in top form and that with ‘Pretty Vicious’ they’ve managed to create a glorious rock n roll hurricane.
