Released: 21.05.21






A game of two halves from Reigning Sound; the first perhaps the greatest bluesy-pub-rock tunes since Dr. Feelgood. The second, a struggle to keep up such an exceptional momentum.

Kicking off with an unbelievably strong opening three tracks, the recently reunited (original) line-up pull out all the stops in their 60s R’n’B/blues styling to leave sweat dripping from the walls with their full-frontal attack of upbeat, good time blues rock. Let’s Do It Again and showstopper A Little More Time could both compete for the greatest pop moments of 2021. Unable to maintain the quality across the album, A Little More Time With Reigning Sound still ends up winning comfortably but perhaps not as the flawless article it started out as.
