If you’re a fan of classic rock along the lines of Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple, than you’re going to truly dig Rival Sons new release, Pressure and Time. This bluesy rock record is really retro, but in a good way; it’s never a bad thing to be compared to the aforementioned legendary musicians. The comparisons aren’t without merit though as vocalist Jay Buchanan sounds as if he’s at times channeling Robert Plant.

With that being said, Pressure and Time is a terrific, raw, rough around the edges, bluesy rock offering that harkens back to an earlier time when albums were written as complete packages and not just singles. To me there is no standout song; they are all quite good, but work best (and extremely well) as one big picture. Everything flows so well that I quickly found myself lost in the music. Bottom line, Pressure and Time is well worth checking out.
