For my money, this is the greatest pure rock band of the 2000s. Granted, I don't listen to a lot of pure rock, so I have limited exposure. For me, they have it all. Powerful, psychedelic effects and sharp studio skills. Great songwriting. High energy. Solid albums that aren't one- or two-song wonders. If they have one weakness, it's being interviewed. They do not come off as bright bulbs. Oh, their shows to bigger audiences look like snooze fests. This is a club band (aren't all the good ones?). To both their credit and their Achilles, they aren't afraid to shift directions and try new things. After two solid rock albums, they went acoustic and quasi-country with Howl 2005, and they did it well and convincingly sincerely because it isn't rote gesture. It's still wholly Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. That first album is on my Best of the Decade list.You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?
