Album Review: The Struts - YOUNG&DANGEROUS ⋆⋆⋆⋆


"YOUNG&DANGEROUS is pure fun bulging at the seams with glam rock prowess."


The Struts have honed their live craft touring with the world's greatest acts, Foo Fighters and The Rolling Stones to name but a few, and that's meant we've had to wait four years for their follow-up to their 2014 debut LP 'Everybody Wants'.

On Friday (26.10.18), Luke Spiller and co will unleash their new record 'YOUNG&DANGEROUS' - and it's certainly worth the anticipation.

The band carry an energy and eccentricity that is comparable to frontman Luke's idols, Freddie Mercury and Justin Hawkins of The Darkness, and their musicianship is on the same spirit level.

The record opens with the red hot single 'Body Talks' and ends with the version featuring pop star Kesha, who knew the 'Tik Tok' singer was such a rock chick?

But it's the material in between that really captures The Struts' undeniable talent.

'Primadonna Like Me' kicks off with the statement of intent, 'Don't you know who I think I am?' and sonically blends any song by The Rolling Stones with a Blur-esque style riff, not a combination you could ever imagine, but that's what makes The Struts so magnificent; their ability to genre-bend.

'Tatler Magazine' is Queen all over. We are instantly transported in a time machine to the era of skintight catsuits, hairy chests, frilly collars and glittery platforms.

'YOUNG&DANGEROUS' is pure fun bulging at the seams with glam rock prowess.


Watch: 'Primadonna Like Me':



'YOUNG&DANGEROUS' is out on October 26 via Interscope Records.
