Album Of The Day: Danko Jones – Never Too Loud
3 piece Punk Rock ‘n’ Roll today from a band that for some reason are still relative unknowns, at least in Britain anyway. They have the kind of catchy pop hooks that would make them ideal candidates for a bit of chart action but alas they seem destined to stay as a support act for other arena superstars.
Fuzzed out riffing is the name of the game with Danko Jones and rock n roll cliches are everywhere, not that it is a bad thing it makes for a pretty sweet party album. Never Too Loud is the most accomplished and strongest album of their career and is also the most commercially succesful but this doesn’t mean that there is any less dirty blue rock going on, it still kicks some fuzzy ass.
Best song is probably ‘Forest For The Trees’, which coming in at 6 minutes long is an epic compared to most of the album, John Garcia (Kyuss) and Pete Stahl (scream, wool and goatsnake) guest on it, this probably explains the length.
