      Interesting album

      Like Bashful Alley another band that failed to release an album but now have a compilation out courtesy of Castle Music is the wonderfully talented Aragorn. This band obviously came at just the wrong time and didn't stick it out together, their sound a little different from other bands of the era but one which would undoubtedly be welcome today to break the cycle of meaningless pop groups, mass produced hip hop and whingeing emo bands.

      A lot of the band's tracks start in a similar manner, deep dark almost doom like riffs which then turn into fast and furious rock n roll which sounds a little heavier than garage. Iggy Pop & The Stooges meets Candlemass! Chris Dunn's vocals are rather cool, seemingly not trying anything to wild with his voice is more along the lines of Billy Idol than Bruce Dickinson, a style which really works with their mish mash style of rock n roll music.

      This album is highly enjoyable, each track is so energetic and catchy that you fail to notice the slightly rough bathroom recorded sound of the album which was re-mastered from a fan's cassete.

      Noonday, Black Ice and a cover of Golden Earing's Radar Love are the best tracks out there and whilst there are no stinkers Midnight Hour is probably the least impressive track. A cool band that are definitely worth a listen.
