Song of the Day - November 16, 2005

It's time to jet back over the big pond and set the plane down in Detroit to enjoy the sounds of The Sights. I can't believe I missed their self-titled album because it rocks in the spirit of all the best Detroit rockers. Their sound is very late 60's and early 70's influenced and couldn't be better. The track "Circus" is an instant rock and roll classic. I love the keyboards which are slightly reminiscent of ELP but much earthier and not as erudite. The vocals are raw and the guitars distorted, loud, and rude. The chorus sounds like it came straight out of the 70's and is slightly sweet sounding, before the whole song erupts in fits of frenzy, while some smokin' guitar licks from the Ted Nugent school leap out of the flames erupting from the "Circus."
