Album Review: Stone Gods – Silver Spoons and Broken Bones

By on Thursday, 15th January 2009 at 6:14 pm

Stone GodsWith the split of The Darkness it seems that we are going to get two great bands for the price of one.  Whilst Ex-darkness frontman Justin Hawkins has been busy with Hot Leg, the rest of the darkness band members including brother Dan have formed Stone Gods who deliver an awesome Rock punch.

Their debut album (silver spoons and broken bones) came out in the first half of last year and it didn’t seem to grab much attention yet I have it as one of the albums of the year! Why? Because it has everything you want from a rock album. Big guitar riffs, squealing solos and tight snappy vocals are all part of the successful recipe.

A great album though, needs to have a catalogue of hits. Just take your pick from this record. “Making It Hard” has a catchy melody and uplifting vibe while the explosive summer anthem “Don’t Drink the Water” is a great seasonal delight. Else where, there are no nonsense tunes like “You Brought A Knife To A Gunfight” which solidify the album with brilliance.

Hopefully a second album will be released later this year and prove that Stone Gods are far from a one hit wonder –  but if you can’t wait till then, then there is always my favourite track “Breakdown”, which for some bizarre reason never featured on the album.
