Dixie Witch - Let It Roll ...
What I got with “Let It Roll” was a short (barely over thirty minutes. Not necessarily a flaw but not a good thing either, in the days where albums are an investment) and simple set of anthemic tunes that at times dropped into oversimplified riff rock by-the-numbers. Dont misunderstand me, the songs here have a raw, unpolished, fist pumping glory that you will adore if you like the genre. It's hard to deny that the guys know very well what they're doing and have those gritty sounds deeply engrained into their DNA. Still after a five-year hiatus, I kinda expected more.
In the end, all “Let It Roll” is, is a well done, dirty and very simple pebble of Boogie Rock, that hits and then is easily forgotten. Again, it works and its fun. But in a time where there's many bands who are approaching this type of sound and doing it well, I would've expected a better effort from Giants like Dixie Witch. 6/10
