8/10 Penrith Steve 19th July 2015

After releasing six albums between 1988 and 1998, Boston three-piece Buffalo Tom have slowed down somewhat. “Skins” which was released in 2011 is only their second album in 17 years and counting. 2007’s “Three Easy Pieces” and “Skins” have also been released with little fanfare too, which is a shame. Buffalo Tom are a great band and always have been.

“Skins” holds no great surprises - it sounds like Buffalo Tom have always sounded, despite the time lag. But this is a good thing - Buffalo Tom should sound like Buffalo Tom.

“Arise, Watch” is a superb opener and one of the album’s best tracks. It’s a slow-burner but its catchy hook and explosive middle get you paying attention. “She’s Not Your Thing” is fairly typical of the songs sung by bassist Chris Colbourn, which a good thing. “Down” continues the great stuff. The superb “Don’t Forget Me” harks back to the likes of “Frozen Lake” from their 1992 highpoint “Let Me Come Over” and features a second vocal from Tanya Donnelly of Throwing Muses and Belly fame.

“Skins” is as a good as anything they’ve done, really. It’s a shame people don’t seem to be as excited by them anymore. 8.5/10
