    Very occasionally, they come a school uniform away from actually impersonating their forefathers, but it's a formula they execute wit the same kick-ass conviction that earned them support slots with Iron Maiden. [18 May 2013, p.53]

    From the anthemic confidence of “Back in the Game” to the speed-metal boogie of “Hungry,” frontman Joel O’Keeffe rasps out memorable, bluesy melodies without sacrificing the AC/DC-inspired passion of 2007’s Runnin’ Wild.

    Keen observers will note that Black Dog Barking is a more polished affair than 2010's No Guts No Glory, but it is the ageless and tireless uniformity of the band's approach that makes this an honest and brazen delight.

    Black Dog Barking is like a safe haven for hard rock purists, offering up a safe place for people to wear jean jackets and pump their fists without irony or judgment.

    The result is both shamelessly derivative and gloriously entertaining. [Jul 2013, p.88]
