Another cool rock tube from Sweden, another young band dedicated to retrorock. Quite as mature and soulful as the voice of Blues Pills singer Elin Larsson - the comparison simply suggests itself - is not that of Ann-Sofie Hayles, but that doesn't harm the Spiders songs. Their slightly hoarse and passionate vocals are well able to stand up to mostly rougher guitar riffs, occasional rock'n'roll piano inserts and energetically forward driving drums. "Lonely Nights" has something of a Jefferson Airplane piece and is a good example of how the Swedish quartet manages to revive the spirit of the early seventies in songwriting and arrangement. Through the female voice in a hard rock frame and the catchy melody, a consistent "Hart trifft zart" style is created. Most of the young wild animals want to rock out and therefore accelerate in most pieces. They take a breather with the successful lament "Hard Times", the bluesiest piece on the record.
