I somehow managed to completely miss this band’s last album, Annie’s Grave, but this new disc is somewhat more in the Sleaze Rock tradition of bands like Nashville Pussy (although in my opinion, a lot better) than the Punkish Rock and Roll of How to Build a Monster. But, now that I think of it, I guess I haven’t listened to that since reviewing it, back in 1864, and I’ve just chugged an entire bottle of NyQuil, so maybe I’m remembering it all wrong. Anyway, the press release (the lying friend of all reviewers) wants me to mention that EF are similar enough to AC/DC that if you like them (the Aussies), then you’d damn well better buy this album right away. But I really don’t hear it. This is too polished and something I can’t quite put my finger on, really, to be AC/DC . Except maybe for the album’s best song, “Dead by Dawn,” which is unfortunately not a Deicide cover, however, it’s still very good. But anyway, Electric F shouldn’t worry about being like AC/DC when they get along just fine as is.
