Good old Southern flavoured Rock 'n' Roll in the style of Blackberry Smoke.

The Pinx really sound like the real deal – they can don cowboy hats and grow a handlebar moustache, but can they play from the heart and the groin? Fortunately, they can and do, delivering good old Southern flavoured Rock 'n' Roll in the style of Blackberry Smoke.

I can forgive the clichéd titled 'Rock All Night' as the boys really mean it. This is music to play in your dented pick-up, driving down a dusty old road looking for the moonshine hut! The super tight percussion supplied by Dwayne Jones gives 'Southern Gentleman' a distinctive groove that sits comfortably behind the two guitar harmonies.

'Baby Don't' is a Rock 'n' Roll shuffle with some scratching guitar sounds that take us back to the glory days of Molly Hatchet. I liked the about-turn during 'Sun House' which has the band tapping into the Grunge/Stoner style of song-writing. The guitars form a wall of sound, while the super strong chorus slides through to take the song where it belongs.

The slower moments of 'Blue Dream' allow the guitars to slide in and out of the song with some soft melodies whilst 'Other Side' could be something from Tom Petty, in that its strength is in its simplicity.

I heard a latter day Beatles influence during 'I Got The Cure' which serves the song very well, the vocals are allowed to blend and drive the song beautifully.
