It’s easy to spit vitriol at bands like The Answer. These highly polished tribute bands that cash in on the aped sounds of classic artists from a long gone era are a scourge on the musical landscape.

All we want is new, innovative music that provokes thoughts we never knew were possible. Right? Perhaps, but what we want even more than that is music that is performed so eloquently and powerfully that all we want to do is rock the hell out. This is where The Answer fit in.

Having just toured the enormodomes of the USA as support to AC/DC, the Northern Irish quartet has laid the foundations for Everyday Demons, their second album, to do extremely well on both sides of the pond.

Of course, you listen to frontman Cormac Neeson’s wails and memories of all of his longhaired predecessors come flooding back but somehow this album sounds far from dated. The lyrics might mean less than you’d have hoped but that doesn’t seem to matter once you appreciate how bloody fun this album is.

From the opening track through the stomping lead single, ‘On And On’, blues masterclass ‘Cry Out’ and onwards, there is no real slowing down in tempo until the magnificent, Stone Temple Pilots-esque ballad, ‘Comfort Zone’. That’s the penultimate track and even then they step it up again for the massive final song, ‘Evil Man’.

After the massive success of their debut, Rise, The Answer have really outdone themselves with Everyday Demons. It’s a beast of an album that will see their stock rise even further.

Sounds like: Free, Led Zeppelin, great classic rock
Top tracks: Comfort Zone, Evil Man, On And On

4.5/6
