For a debut, this is one solid album. I'd hesitate for a perfect ten only because I predict they will top this as they grow into their songwriting and realise a more complicated lyrical and musical vision. While certainly not only the Doors but The Gun Club (both lyrical and vocal similarities to Jeffrey Lee Pierce) and Echo & the Bunnymen (not in the sound so much as the post-punk attitude and their sinister yet accessibly pop-oriented vibe) will echo here, they create an appealingly grim sound scape for these death-haunted, obsessively structured, somber songs.
