A heavy groove and a heavy grungy vibe, meted by a straight Hard Rock undercurrent: ‘One’ sounds like the kind of band that cut their teeth on the rock greats, but while their bio cites bands like Zeppelin and Motley Crue alongside Rush and the Ramones sonically opener ‘Tomorrow’s Not too Late’ sounds somewhere between Nickelback and Shinedown. ‘Queen of Rock and Roll’ has a scratchier bluesier feel and it’s pretty straight forward heavy rock and roll. As albums go it’s not a bad way to introduce yourself at all.

 

As the band approach their 10th anniversary there’s plenty to like about ‘One’ from the high-octane sleaze of ‘Dirty Little Secret’ to the full on stomp and swagger of ‘She’s Bad’, the aggression of ‘Daddy (Don’t Wanna Be Like You)’; title track ‘Worlds Collide’s’ kick ass drums and deeply heavy riff  and the supremely commercial ballad ‘Never Live for Yesterday’ that has a touch of Creed about it.

 

Our favourite pair though are perhaps ‘Livin’ a Lie’ which channels the band’s inner Whitesnake and gives it a cool modern twist, and  ‘Days Gone By’ a mid-tempo rocker that also sound pretty commercial to our ears.   

 

Hell, they even throw in the kitchen sink with a cover of ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ for good measure! If you like your Rock and Roll gritty, dirty and Loud check out ‘One’.
