Us writing types at Thrash Hits don’t always agree on musical tastes, and Young Guns are one of those bands that polarize opinion in the TH camp. Whereas I thought the 2010 debut release, All Our Kings Are Dead, was a giant, catchy and cohesive beast of steady mainstream rock, one of our omnipotent overlords/editors, Dame Hugh Platt, had the temerity to do some sort of “joke” review, which didn’t seem like much of a “joke” at all. Needless to say, while I thought the Young Gun’s sound was a little contrived but fun nonetheless, other parties flung shit at it like overzealous monkeys.
