Genre: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Greg Watson
'Blackout' is another notch in the belt for Audrey Horne. The smooth production and catchy, well-written songs worm their way into your brain and set up shop there. This album is on par with 2013's 'Youngblood'; full of standout tracks throughout the album. "Audrevolution" and album closer "Rose Alley" are my two favorites as both tracks epitomize what Audrey Horne does so well. The hook on both songs is infectious, the vocals perfect and some seriously awesome guitar throughout. If you are a fan of the band, you will no doubt already have this one but if you are looking for something with a classic rock feel or have been curious about the band, give 'Blackout' a spin.
