Rock two-piece Royal Blood have paid their dues doing lots of pleasant tearing up of shit in quaint environments, and are now set to release their self-titled debut, featuring the two singles that have won them love so far: "Little Monster" and "Come On Over". The record continues to try and amp everything up to a volume dial that reads MAX, so you can be overwhelmed by the drumming, roll with Ben Thatcher's gruesome vocal snarl and enjoy some nice old fashioned riffage.

I wanted to laugh my tits off at this album from "hot shit" duo Royal Blood. Yes I've got tits, they're great. 'Royal Blood' is actually pretty hysterical, bolshy over-produced "man-rock" that regardless of its deficiencies comes over as pretty punchy stuff for a two piece. It's got that sort of White Stripes meets Them Crooked Vultures type vibe but a bit cheesier, bit more obvious, blatantly going for the A-list radio play bullshit. It actually sounds like they were in different studios to record this, such is compressed precision of the production. It sucks when you get over-zealous producers ruining the latest corporate rock sensation's chances to ever sound like human beings. 

Balls out eat-my-riff shit like this is everywhere but beneath the cliched bluster and chugging FM recycled post-grunge shit there are some fairly rousing moshpit-friendly delights here. They're obviously tight as hell musicians but the singer guy should stop ripping Josh & Jack off though, it's really sad. I'm going to tell my Little Sister. I hope she beats him up. Bland-fest with a furry codpiece.
