So I recently picked up Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's most recent album - Howl - on recommendation from a friend. I really enjoy it. It's kind of all over the place stylistically, but that's cool. Especially since T-Bone Burnett worked on it, and he's a ****ing god.

Anyway, I was told that this sort of folk/country/blues/Traditional American music approach was a completely different sound than the band's earlier material, so I was wondering what their other stuff does, in fact, sound like, and is it worth picking up?
Peace, peace, and that's my piece.

Their early albums are more punkish but still melodicly driven. Check out the song "Whatever Happened to My Rock and Roll." It's excellent. But overall I love where they've gone with Howl, it's a great album in my opinion.
'take them on your own' is a really good record. i would recommened that heavily, same with their first album.
rites of nothing.
