CLUTCH BOOK OF BAD DECISIONS
Near-perfect 12th outing
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: www.pro-rock.com
