T. Hives

I just got the new album Tyrannosaurus Hives by The Hives. Conclusion? It rocks every bit as much as Veni Vidi Vicious. If you loved that album then you'll love this one. If you didn't...well, I just don't know what to say. As with VVV, every song is a winner except for one. I always thought VVV was marred only by Find Another Girl, the only song that broke from the supercharged Nuggets formula. Similarly, Diabolic Scheme, which has synthesized strings and tries too hard to be weird, sucks too. But 11 out of 12 is pretty good by anyone's standard.

Bought this album this morning. Like it quite a bit. Reminds me a ton of the Stooges and songs like Raw Power, I Want to Be Your Dog, Loose, and Down on the Street, which should be part of anyone's collection...
