Year Long Disaster – Year Long Disaster

ARTIST: Year Long Disaster YearLongDisaster-YearLongDisaster

TITLE:  Year Long Disaster

YEAR RELEASED: 2007

CHART ACTION: None

SINGLES: Per Quaiche Dollardo in Piu, Leda Atomica

OTHER SONGS YOU MAY KNOW: None

LINEUP: Daniel Davies, Rich Mullins, Brad Hargreaves

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT: Retro-sounding hard rock trio stay true to their roots and influences.

SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: What this album has? Riffs, attitude, volume, swagger?

What it doesn’t have much of? Real originality.

However, that’s not to say it’s bad or boring. This is pretty decent for a hard rock aficionado. It’s a power trio that just crank up the power chords and wail away. They’re not like Wolfmother in that they don’t try to really ape anyone directly, but they just write basic rock songs in a power trio format.

In the 70’s, they’d be lost in a sea of bands like this. In 2007, they stood out, and us rock fans were better for it, even if it wasn’t truly trailblazing.

NOTES & MINUTIAE: Daniel Davies is the son of Kinks’ guitarist Dave Davies, so he comes at his guitar playing honestly.

IS THERE A DELUXE VERSION: No.

GRADE: B: I sometimes wish this was on 8-track, because it’s one of those albums that would have sounded good in that format.
