    I just don't like female rock vocalists. Call it what you will. The music is good though.

    Album brings what is so great about Sons and Daughters - a strong, relentless beat with screeching guitars and charged vocals. Album is short but with their style, Sons and Daughters just just long enough.

    Good Inspiration from the late 60's, 70's (Shocking Blue, Iggy...) but i'm not sure of its efficiency. Anyway, i love this band!

    Why are this band not yet global? Music to be frightened by.

  1. The viscous, darkly choppy, sexily fulsome and ferociously hard-driving blend of post-punk and country noir that distinguished their long-playing debut, "The Repulsion Box" is still evident, but it's matched with a bracing new breadth, dynamic diversity and myriad light/shade variations.
  2. Look beneath the surface sheen, then, and you'll see gratefully receive This Gift as the best, most complete, Sons And Daughters long-player to date.
  3. It's a party, not a revival meeting, This Gift, but a good one.
