Only Thieves – Heartless Romantics

Apparently it’s not just Creed who know how to rock Tallahassee, Florida. Only Thieves already made a pretty solid impression on me with the “Greetings From Levy Park” EP and they simply repeat that with eleven new jams on “Heartless Romantics”.

Well, this time around they leave an even better impression. Yet they don’t make it any easier to tell you what they sound like exactly. The guitars flirt with poppy sounds yet manage to retain plenty of grit. The same can pretty much be said about the vocals. And all the while the drums just keep rolling on.

It should definitely be classified under the moniker rock ‘n roll but not the ‘rock out with your cock out’ kind. It’s more restrained and when they do dial up the noise, you can feel the outrage coming through the speakers. It’s simple, straight-forward, honest, pure rock. Kinda like Gaslight Anthem playing tunes out of the Replacements songbook. Basically “Heartless Romantics” is one of those albums that deserves to be enjoyed very, very loud. Someone get these guys a label… quick!
Score: 8 out of 10
no label
