Orange is the new fashion colour. Orange Goblin is thus fully in line with the trend. For their seventh studio album they threw an extra scoop of coals into the fire and are getting even closer to the hard rock greats Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy in a straighter rocking way. Sometimes rigorously rolling everything down ("The Fog", "Death Of Aquarius"), sometimes with jubilant rock guitars ("Save Me From Myself", "The Bishops Wolf") - the English institution has it in every situation to such an extent with the clichés that it already starts to make mood again. Orange Goblin don't let anything burn, don't care about any zeitgeist considerations and don't strive for any trends. This makes them as authentic as they are likeable. The highlight of the album is without a doubt the title song, almost a ballad, if it didn't come along with this sting, which makes it impossible to feel good.
