    Allez Allez finds Reis continuing to play with expectations, but succeeding with the results, as usual.

    It has all the fire and fury of the debut, the same live-wire dual-guitar attack, and a similarly top-notch batch of songs that deliver plenty of rock-hard punch and are loaded with a nicely strutting power that has as much swing as it does thud, but also a few that show just the smallest bit of restraint and Spoon-like attention to sonic detail.

    [John Reis] and compatriot Gar Wood have injected the fire of Hot Snakes into The Night Marchers.

    All said and done, score this as another understated triumph for a band built on the blood and sweat of the greaser rock sounds of yesteryear.

    Allez Allez doesn’t lack for energy, but the moments we expect--i.e. the bluesy shuffle of “2 Guitars Sing”, the sheer speed of “Loud Dumb and Mean”--while they may sound good individually, create some ear fatigue as they pile up one after another.
