    I love how the producer is the same producer for Queen. Its so fitting since they are Queen jr. Although there is that AC/DC vibe in them as well, its a shame they broke up, I found this album to be better than their debut

    This is where The Darkness DID become a joke. Despite being drugged up for most of the album, Justin Hawkins still makes great music, although this album lacks the power of the first. This is still a jolly good listen (even if you're not drugged up) and after several listens seems to improve upon each playthrough. Obviously I would recommend the first, but this album is still fun and shouldn't be ignored (if you think I'm wrong then that's ok, this album isn't for everyone). Expand

  1. Not so much a letdown as a comedown, One Way Ticket to Hell...and Back just shows that the giddy highs of Permission to Land aren't so easy to get the second time around.
  2. One Way Ticket To Hell...And Back is a sturdy rock album with some saucy titles and odd instruments, but sadly it is less than it could or should be.
  3. Without any real scream-along, kick-ass songs, this is just a One Way Ticket to Hell. Period. [2 Dec 2005, p.81]
