I've been in on the Diablofurs journey for quite some time, I've had the pleasure of watching them, then as a promoter, then socially and generally getting to know them. Top people, musicians and friends.
That all aside, I will try to be as objective as I can be !!
For me, this album is (was) the most anticipated I can ever remember, and when the postal service faltered there was a build up of pressure which didn't stop.
I knew that it was just a matter of time before the dream album became a reality. After all when someone sleeps, eats, breathes and drinks music (Rob Furs), joins up with other like minded individuals who also buy into the vision, then it just has to result in an outpouring of sheer joy.
And so here it is, a bloody fantastic CD / dayglo album and download. Be proud Diablofurs, be very proud.
No bullshit, this album will have you dancing, singing, tapping and air guitaring, (hell, throw in some air keyboarding too) from start to finish. It's one catchy, glammy, stompy, singy, happy track after another. You'd need a wheelbarrow full of ket to stop you from dancing to this, and even then it would be the trippy soundtrack of your dreams.
If you have been lucky enough to see them live then you will have joined in with some of these songs before, maybe not realising that they have already tucked themselves away into the happy place in your mind, but I can assure you that the recorded tracks have been elevated to another level. Great performances from all of the band, their sound fits together perfectly on all of these tracks. Any one of them could be a single and in days gone by each one would've been a massive hit.
No need for me to take this album track by track, you know that I'm going to dribble the same droplets of excitement over each and every one.
When we are all released into the wild find out where you can see Diablofurs and go and enjoy them. The Diablofurs sound attracts a wide and varied clientelle, there's no wonder festivals like Deerstock, Rebellion and Undercover love them, but until these are back add this album to your life.
