Near-per­fect 12th out­ing

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Death. Taxes. Clutch to turn in an ut­terly face-melt­ing new al­bum. Just three things that you can take as guar­an­tees in this life.

Jean-Paul Gaster and the Mary­land rock­ers have done it again on Bookof

BadDe­ci­sions. Gaster is the com­plete groove mon­ster. The feel and fills on opener ‘Gimme The Keys’ are an ab­so­lute joy.

The ti­tle track’s del­i­cate ghost notes, the break­neck ‘How To Shake Hands’, the pow­er­ful snare roll in ‘Weird Times’ – it’s high­light af­ter high­light.

It’s about time that Clutch clocked up the com­mer­cial suc­cess to match their crit­i­cal ac­claim – we see no rea­son why BookofBadDe­ci­sions can’t de­liver that suc­cess. (RC) Down­load: ‘BookofBadDe­ci­sions’ Goto:
