3 stars Responding to a query on the Forum pages, let me share a bit of my input here. Previously, I've heard some of the band's earlier works and that left me quite impressed. That I haven't followed it up is partly due to the fact that one can only pay attention to that many works at a time.

I totally agree with a reference to this band as having a "retro" feel. Indeed, they sound like a mix of Black Sabbath and Grand Funk Railroad - minus the riffs. Good guitar work along with thunderous bass often in a jammy fashion. Pretty good if you are into such grunty deliveries.

This album "She Said" follows a similar approach as before, but perhaps too much so. A feeling of "deja vu" creeps in, as if I've heard these lines before. Indeed this work sounds like a repetition of previous efforts and that leaves it rather redundant. Not bad at all, only there is hardly anything new here. A couple of mediocre vocal tracks bring down my rating to a 3.

I do like this band in general, their sound is well worth exploring, but on the face of it, compared with earlier releases this album is not really essential.
