The Pinx: Look What You Made Me Do 

Much of the Pinx's Look What You Made Me Do builds on the thump of a kickdrum, riffs and bass to underscore the feelings of elation that dominate the album. But visceral hooks are the guiding light here. Opening number "The Desert" swells with guitar bombast while the band members play as if their lives depend on it. Rock exuberance a la Sabbath, Zeppelin and Queens of the Stone Age puts an emphasis on skewed pop, which comes across in the bellow and chug of frontman Adam McIntyre on "The Owl" and "Killing Me." The only down point is "Change Me," a broken-hearted, Billy Corgan-style downer, but it's only a momentary lapse in a maelstrom of tight, hard rock songs that burst with melody. (Self-released) 4 stars out of 5
