    There's nothing really wrong with this album, it just doesn't have the same vibrant air as the last two Darkness albums. There's more of it and it's certainly enjoyable but it's nothing outstanding. There is (as one would expect) a very prominent classic rock influence with a fun and laid back air throughout that is difficult to not appreciate and would make a perfect accompaniment to night in with your mates having a few drinks but by the end of it you will find yourself longing for the glory days of Permission to Land.
