The Answer, 'Everyday Demons' (The End)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Chuck Eddy

Unveiled to classic-rock-starved Americans on last fall's AC/DC tour, these randy young Irishmen subtract all traces of art from Led Zeppelin's template. So while not averse to Free blooze or Thin Lizzy beauty, their groove more often recalls secondtier Zepalikes: the Cult, Whitesnake, Soundgarden when slogging and moaning, Fastway when speeding and stomping. Their chops aren't superhuman, and groupie-trouble ballads drown Cormac Neeson's high wail. But when they up the tempos, they kick it. Closer "Evil Man" is a hilarious heavy hitter -- with a hoedown inside.
