The Darkness is Back

Postby jjmillenium » Sun Mar 13, 2011 7:57 pm

can you remember them? They are back, after 5 years of other projects. You can listen to his second album, a lot of queen-feel is on that record (Roy Thomas Becker produced it).
So, basically, they are BACK!

I'd heard there was a chance of this as Richie Edwards was interested in singing for my friends' band, Voodoo Johnson, but couldn't commit in case of a reformation. Looking forward to hearing what they do this time round.

Do they still have the 70's vibe going on?

Liking the sound of this! I know not many people had time for Hot Leg, or the second Darkness album One Way Ticket, but I thought they were bloody good. One Way Ticket was, IMHO, better than Permission To Land. Good news indeed- bring it on! 8)

I loved the Hot Leg album, particularly "Chickens" and "Trojan Guitar". And, yes, the second Darkness album is better than the debut. But, don't forget Stone Gods - that was a great album, too!

Stone Gods (Dan Hawkins, Richie Edwards, Ed Graham (who left SG) and Toby MacFarlane) are much better IMHO. Give them a listen!

If you don't like Justin's voice, of course that you found Stone Gods better...and Stone Gods are pretty good, but there's a lot of bands like that, but the darkness? they are totally genuine in his style (this days, I mean)

Sorry, my mistake, I didn't mean I didn't like The Darkness. I loved them and they are a great band to see live as their gigs are great fun. I just think Stone Gods are more heavy and that they took things a wee bit more "serious" than TD, and that makes the music better for me!

Would be great to see TD back, mind you.

Glad to see I am not the only one who likes the second album better than the first. I'd say that I enjoy both the Stone Gods and the Darkness about equally. Wasn't expecting new music from either any time soon so this is a nice suprise.
