Album Review

When they released their I Believe in a Thing Called Love EP in August 2002, the Darkness were no different from hundreds of other English hopefuls, slogging through club after club gig, hoping to make it big. Less than a year later, their debut album, Permission to Land, would be topping the British charts, and given the quality of the three tracks premiered here (later re-recorded to form the backbone of said LP), this is hardly surprising. From the energetic, insta-single of a title track, to the big, dumb, fist-pumping metal anthem "Love on the Rocks With No Ice," to that most dreaded of classic rock devices, the power ballad "Love Is Only a Feeling," the Darkness' seemed to have all the bases covered — at least to be successful in, oh, 1979. So how in blazes did they make it work in the new millennium? Well, credit their ability to recycle those time-weary formulas with humor, panache, and utmost conviction. This, and of course excellent songwriting instincts, helped the Darkness bypass misunderstanding critics, reach right into fans' hearts and make believer out of them.

the best rock band eva

the darkness are amazing this is an amazing ep, they have really got to put their not so well known tracks together in an album or two, cos they r so amazing!!!

Formed: 2000 in Norfolk, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

England's the Darkness centered around irrepressible frontman Justin Hawkins (vocals/guitars/keyboards), who, along with his guitar-playing baby brother Dan, bassist Frankie Poullain, and drummer Ed Graham, single-handedly resurrected the rather unfashionable sounds and attitudes of late-'70s hard rock for an unsuspecting generation. Following the demise of an earlier, conspicuously synth pop-based outfit named Empire, the Hawkins brothers sowed the seeds of what would become the Darkness at an impromptu...
