Infections, gut-punching garage! Detroit's Own! The Gories combine bluesy fun with Cramps-style garage. A great album. One person found this helpful. As advertised! Great album, great condition. Some decent garage tunes, but guitar work is lacking. Lead singer's soulful voice blends well with the bluesy garage sound. Totally minimalist real bluesy, garage rock. They epitomize the "garage" band. No bass, primitive drums, and two often poorly played electric guitars.
Some songs I love and some songs I just plain don't like. But I don't think this band ever pretended to be anything it wasn't. And that says a lot to me. If you're into the White Stripes or bands like that check it out. Chances are you still may not like them. What you have to look at here is the sincerity and the spirit. Not the production or chops. Minimal garage-blues melt-down!
This is the real Detroit sound baby! Forget all that stuff 'bout how the White Stripes and The Strokes are savin' rock'n'roll and creating a "new" scene! Those lame-o dweebs couldn't even dream of making and album this great. The Gories had a profound understanding of both blues and garage minimalism.
Mick's soul roar combined with Dan's punk wail mixed with a healthy dose of Peg's heavy thud created a sound capable of melting any space-age metals! See all reviews.

A Blues Garage Rock masterpiece, A little rough, a little raw, some slower tracks some more uptempo but all great!
