    While the bands foundations have always been built on rock (pun intended), as this album's title suggests, BSP go balls out rock on this their third album proper. "Do You Like Rock Music" is the bands most ambitious album in terms of aiming for that "big sound" and while the songs retain the grand anthemic feel we've come to expect from the band, here the band don't have the songs to seeWhile the bands foundations have always been built on rock (pun intended), as this album's title suggests, BSP go balls out rock on this their third album proper. "Do You Like Rock Music" is the bands most ambitious album in terms of aiming for that "big sound" and while the songs retain the grand anthemic feel we've come to expect from the band, here the band don't have the songs to see their ambition all the way through to the end. There are some proper crackers - with the album boasting a strong opening quarter and closing quarter. The middle of the section tends to meander a bit and lose focus. "No Lucifer" is a particular standout. "Do You Like Rock Music" is a good album, a qualified success but slightly disappointing as a follow up to the majestic "Open Season". Expand

  1. They muster compelling music that sounds like triumph in the face of adversity, building something beautiful out of the building blocks of sadness and despair.
  2. Wired with a sense of opportunity, these little Caesars continue to play mother's favourite rather than the ostracised gurning recluses they initially cast themselves as.
  3. A powerful collection of passionate, anthemic rockers that will no doubt please their hardcore following whilst winning new converts to the cause.
