The Colour: Devil's Got a Holda Me EP

The Colour is rock. Don't let the extra, fancy "u" in their name throw you off. These guys are rock, with a hint of cockiness. This EP feels like these guys spent quite a while on each song, perfected them, and are now making all of us their bitches. The Colour has sort of a Raconteurs/Spoon/ACDC feel (I know those bands have nothing in common), especially on the title track "Devil's Got a Holda Me", a song that features a breakdown with handclaps. The layered guitars, well thought-out vocals and occasional guitar-hero solo's make for one hell of a debut EP. I can't describe them as anything but pure rock, and I'm excited to be able to say I told you so when these guys make it big with their debut LP, Between Earth and Sky. Just listen. The Colour - Devil's Got a Holda Me [download or die] The Colour - Until We're High I've been told the best way to take in The Colour is in a live venue, which seems pretty obvious given their style and sound.

Your set up can only lead to a let down. I was expecting the next coming of Bon Scott, or similar.

This music just straight sucks.

Stop pimping.

anonymous you are a coward. show your face and we shall duel at dawn.

for serious, give reasons why this music 'just straight sucks'...or at least tell us what type of music you like so that i can decide if your taste is any good. its okay to listen to 'juliana theory/new found glory'. really it is...just say so!

in closing i'll leave you with some wisdom that may or may not been told to me in a one of my less-than-sober moments: 'you can't pop every womans' cherry, but that wont stop you from sexing.'

thumb up!,
