The Darkness - Hazel Eyes

The Darkness will release their sophomore album, "One Way Ticket to Hell... and Back" this upcoming Tuesday. I've had the chance to listen to it a couple times already (full review coming on next week), and here's the simple breakdown - awesome, but not as awesome as their debut. A track though, that immediately stood out for me, is "Hazel Eyes", proof that the Darkness aren't really a throwback to cock rock so much as they are absolute devotees to 70s rock such as Queen, Boston, Sweet, Thin Lizzy, and AC/DC. Their sense of humor throws people off guard sometimes into thinking the Darkness are a 'joke' band, but if you ask me those people are just confusing 'fun' with 'funny'. You can stream some more tracks, as well as the video for "One Way Ticket" via the Darkness' site
