I love The Darkness and this is definitely a good rocker. I'm a huge fan of their previous album, Hot Cakes, which didn't/doesn't get enough credit. "Barbarian" sounds like a mix of that album and the edginess/lyrical content of their debut, Permission To Land.

Wow. I really like that. I'll be honest, I haven't given these guys a chance since their first effort. Maybe I should rectify that.

I love 'em and hate 'em at the same time. It's weird. Their have some great songs. But the vocals kill half their songs unfortunately.

 

I'm with Alpha on this one ... the music is brilliant, but as soon as Justin's vocals go into the stratosphere they become a joke ...

What the fuck is that "chorus?!" Dreadful chorus, but otherwise, I don't mind the rest of the song. Good to hear him trying hard not to be too much of a fucking idiot on the mic.

 

I like a handful of songs in their discography, but for the most part I think they're a very poor band. Yeah, the vocals are the obvious main flaw, but my biggest gripe with them has been a hell of a lot of awful songs that so many people don't seem to notice. I guess they get caught up in the gimmick and forgive them for actually writing really bad songs? I dunno, I don't get it.

 

I'll try this out, especially if he is making an effort not to be a fucking c*nt on the mic, but I expect very, very little.

Yup. Agreed mate!

The crazy falsetto is not something that I would want in every rock band, but it's been a signature of The Darkness since the very beginning and I love getting it from them, if that makes sense.

Yup. Agreed mate!

The chorus in this song is absolutely horrible

 

Glad I have Gibbo, Geoff and you who agree with me on this. Great verses, music sounds nice, but that chorus is just plain terrible.

I nearly spat out my Ribena..............i was drinking that through a straw while listening to ISSA (the drink seemed to fit ;) ).......when I heard that chorus.

 

What the fuck was that??

Did you ever get into Stone Gods? The band that Dan Hawkins put together when his brother left The Darkness the first time? They were pretty good - The Darkness' bass player took over vocals (and switched to rhythm guitar), and they recruited a new guy to play bass. They only managed one album and a couple of EPs, which is a shame ...

Stone Gods kicked ass. Loved 'em!

    • I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?
    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • How overproduced is his voice?
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts.
