My Top 10 Albums of 2013 – No. 4

Specter at the Feast4. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Specter at the Feast

Six albums into their career, it is probably fair to say that Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are unlikely to ever pull any major surprises with their sound, which could have made the prospect of following 2010’s career-best Beat The Devil’s Tattoo a difficult one. After opener ‘Firewalker’‘s hypnotic, slow-burning groove, the trademark BRMC Blues-Psych-Folk-Country sound is evident throughout, punctuated with moments of touching reflection (‘Lullaby’, ‘Sometimes The Light’), no doubt influenced by the sad loss of bass player Robert Been‘s late father (and band tour engineer), and making ‘Specter’ a fitting tribute.
