Released in 2006, for me this album was a breath of fresh air when it came out. These boys have proper punk attitude, something which has been missing for too flaming long on these shores.
If you stuck Appetite For Destruction in a blender with Never Mind The B*****ks this is the kind of album that'd be spat out onto your kitchen surface. Glam punk. Very 80's (complete with big hairsprayed barnets) but not naff sounding thanks to the punky rawness of it all. Although there are some big fat Motley Crue choruses to be had.
Highlights include I'm A Rat, F*ck It Up (2 versions are included, both are great but the acoustic one is supercool and gets my vote as the better version) and the outstanding How Rude She Was, which is still the best single I've heard for donkeys yonks, the guitars on this track are gorgeous!!
Since this album, the Towers have changed line-up following a bust-up on the streets of Tokyo and haven't really been the same since.
Blood, Sweat & Towers is definitely worth a listen if you like any of the bands I've mentioned above. It does have a few 'filler' tracks on it, like Good Times which is pretty lame, but mostly it's a good punk n roll album.
