    Anyone else got this?

    Have had it and the new John Grant album on heavy rotation the last day or two.

    Defo a rockier album and harks back to some of their earlier stuff.

    What it actually reminds me of in places is the Rollins Band album Weight. Some similar bass work, and a similar feel at times. Shades of Monster Magnet and FNM as well. Little bit of Thin Lizzy in there too.


    Clutch are back baby. Woooooo.

    Yeah been listening to a good bit. Great album, they've gotta make over here this winter hopefully.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,673 ✭✭✭✭ Mushy


    Just listened whole way through, its a lovely album. Better see them live soon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 944 ✭✭✭ fobster


    Saw them live in Brussels at the start of February, new songs sounded brilliant live especially Crucial Velocity. Love the intro to Book, Saddle and Go.

    Got it a few days ago and listened to it in fits and starts. Really like the sound of it so far, though....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,748 ✭✭✭ Dermighty


    found it last night on Spotify, I really like it.

    It's good to see rockin' bands like this get even better!

    Firstly the new Soundgarden was brilliant and now this.

    It's a good time to like rock!

    Instead of making a new thread I might as well bump this, just got Blast Tyrant last week and sweet jesus what an album. If ever an album was made for drinking on a sunny day it's this one. One of the most fun albums I've ever heard. But that's not to do it a disservice and say it's some light and fluffy, plastic, happy album with no sticking power, it's actually quite a dense album with amazing song writing. The thing hits like a tonne of bricks. Neil Fallon's vocals and lyrics really tie the whole thing together, even if I haven't a clue what he's on about half the time!
    I believe Subtle Hustle will be the soundtrack to my summer.

    Cracking album.


    Did you get the reissue that comes with the bonus cd Basket Of Eggs?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,401 ✭✭✭ spiritcrusher


    It's in the post at the moment. Couldn't help myself downloading the main album while I wait for it. I've heard it's one those bonus disks that's actually very good.

    This gig is going to be savage. It's impossible to listen to Clutch without smiling. There'll be such a good buzz in the room.
