iTunes Review

While the first time around The Darkness were considered a parody of 1970s and 1980s hard rock with their brilliantly catchy single, "I Believe In A Thing Called Love," they have now reformed with their original line-up for album number three and sound less like a satire on hard rock tropes than a band that simply loves shameless pop hooks and the firepower of serious amplification. "Everybody Have A Good Time" aims for the arena where Poison once dominated, but the grand shuffle of "Every Inch of You" is taken to a pleasurable extreme with the sweet wailings of singer Justin Hawkins. "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us" speeds up and down the hard rock highway, but it also catches a genuine up-to-date modern power. "Living Each Day Blind" resembles a classic power ballad, except it leans heavier on the power and strips back the gloss usually associated with the 'ballad' part. Acoustic demos, including the striking "I Can't Believe It's Not Love," videos and song by song commentary complete the experience.

they are back!

killer album from start to finish

The are back!!!

The Darkness has been one of my favorite bands for a very long time and i have been waiting so long for this album to come out and now that its here, it is amazing.

Let There Be Light - The Darkness are back!!!

These guys are rocking hard and their sense of humor is not lost on this album. Great music, lovable lyrics, ripping guitars and one awesome voice!!! Hot Cakes will take you into the light!!!

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...
