This is true-blue, road-dog-fashion bar rock. It’s nothing progressive, but they’ve certainly polished their sound enough that it could easily accompany a commercial for a brand of tough trucks. There is a glimmer of uniqueness for a brief moment during “Deuses Wild.” A vocal harmony is noticeable in the beginning of each verse that sounds like a group of female back-up gospel singers accompanying the masculine trio. It makes for a riveting sound. The addition is all too brief, but that’s fine, considering CRH are plenty good at playing the traditional sound they prefer to boast. –Justin Gallegos
