Rival sons - Feral Roots [Album Review]
Ringer and The J-Man take a listen and do a full album review of Feral Roots by Rival Sons, going through each track, album art, a little personal history and then give their "6-string rating" on the inaugural episode of On the Record Music.
Overall, this album is a great effort from the Long Beach based rock band. The vocal work from Jay Buchanan along with backing vocals from Scott Holiday, Mike Miley, Dave Beste, and the choir is top notch. Jay proves he is one of the best singers in rock and roll today. Mike's drums hit harder than ever, Scott's guitar screams like it always does and Dave's bass gives this heavy hitting album a solid underlying groove.
If the Feral Roots is lacking in anyway, it might be that it doesn't have an apparent stand out "hit song" that could propel the band through the streaming playlists and radio waves but time may prove us wrong on this front as all of the songs are very well constructed and performed.
