The Von Bondies: Pawn Shoppe Heart

Sound — 10
It's a mix of punk, classic rock, and blues with a dark felling. When I say dark I don't mean evil like Heavy Metal or depressing like The Cure, it's almost to hard to explain in words but very good.

Lyrics — 8
I dont know how to expalin the lyrics. Usualy leave you with the feeling of being in a New Orlens swamp and fits well with the glomy music.

Overall Impression — 10
They do have a different sound from there counter parts The White Stripes (I sould mention Jack White beat the living hell out of there lead singer), The Strokes with there darker sound and mix of punk and blues. They do use a lot of power chords, but also have good blues riffs, but I would like to hear a little more soloing. I truly think this a band that you relly should look into on a very good album.

    wow, it's so depressing how few people know about these people (at least here at U-G)
