TVD's Daily Wax | The Darkness "One Way Ticket To Hell...And Back"

Maybe it's because I miss Queen so much. Or the quality of the Roy Thomas Baker production with those sonic flourishes that have been marinating in my brain since childhood. Or maybe it's the cool--albeit corny--cover art. Or maybe it's because, while waiting with Big Andy for The Darkness to hit the stage at the 9:30, they played nothing but Thin Lizzy to warm up the crowd. Then Dan Hawkins comes out wearing a classic Thin Lizzy t-shirt. That could be it. But I tell you one thing, it's not the falsetto. Certainly not the falsetto.

I have to admit I really liked their first album as well.

Or maybe it's because the album is called One Way Ticket to Hell...And Back. That's pretty awesome.

True. But it can't touch Andrew WK doing The MacLaughlin Group. Let's be honest.
