Dark Angel CD Review In Blues Magazine France – July 2012

Major Dark Angel Review in Blues Magazine – France – July 2012 – Available in Most Newsagents and Supermarkets Across France:
It’s good to hear albums whose roots you can really feel, and coming from the training of 7 musicians who have as many as 3 magnificent feminine creatures to sing, who lack neither charm nor voice, and even represent some of the best (last few words are as near a translation as we could find) on the scene. Once you’ve listened to this excellent treat, you will quickly realise that we’re in a blues rock vein of the best vintage, of which the longtime guitarist is inspired magnificently by the masters of the genre like Creedence, Clearwater Revival and Lynyrd Skynyrd.A few excursions into country and latin music like Carlos Santana (So Over You) are just

“The Maginificent Feminine Creatures”

are just as tasty, and always with this characteristic fibre that distinguishes this group.The 9th album contains some really nice nuggets like langourous Stormy Monday, a cover of the excellent Stormy Monday, a cover of the excellent TBone Walker where the very young voice of Maudie (Mandie?) excels and G Boner plays with an extreme sensitivity to the original. The recording is technically superb, and it’s a treat to hear all of this beautiful group in perfect balance.

Go on, treat yourself, some blues rock of this quality combining such sublime voices – you have to fill your ears with it without moderation.
