Marvellous!

People often think it must be great reviewing albums – getting to hear stuff by artists you like before anybody else and all that. Sure, that is a major perk, but it also means I have to review a lot of stuff I don't request. I have no idea who they are, no idea what they will be like and no idea if they are to my taste. Sometimes it's soul destroying, listening to an album over and over knowing you aren't enjoying it, but you can't pan it because it's not bad, it's just not for you. However, on those occasions when you receive an album that ticks all the boxes, it's all worthwhile!

Kill For Eden are just such an example. This, their debut album, is packed with blistering riffs, hook laden choruses, great vocals and a strong collection of tunes. Entirely penned by British guitarist Dave Garfield and Sydney born vocalist Lyla D'Souza, Kill For Eden tread a similar path to the excellent Saint Jude, albeit with more aggression. 'Kerosene' is a prime example, a hard rocking opener with a great hook. D'Souza's voice is the major selling point for me, taking an already fine set of tracks and lifting them with a clear, powerful delivery. Whether it's the fiery foot tapper 'Untouchables' or the brilliant power ballad 'Fate Insists' with a sublime soaring chorus, she nails everything.

There are great songs throughout the record, with notable cuts including 'Beige', 'Living On Mars' and the Ned Kelly inspired 'Ned'. There's an hour's worth of material here and very little that isn't worth your time. I'm delighted with this album and have played it far more than I needed to for review purposes. This one is a keeper – one of the strongest debut albums I've heard for a long time. Don't take my word for it – check them out on this issue's cover CD*.

Marvellous!
