Thirsty - Albatross

Led by Guy Bailey, formerly of The Quireboys, Thirsty is a beautifully sloppy rock & roll band. Albatross features smart songs that can be interpreted in multiple ways. Bailey's voice has all the best rough-edged qualities of Ian Hunter and Mark Knopfler. However, during "Beat of her Heart," he sounds most like the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards. It's not pretty or smooth, but it's consistently soulful. Then again, the name Ian Dury comes to mind during "Parliament of Fools." It's likely a political song. Then again, almost any government, at almost any time can be described as a collection of foolish people.

During "Parliament of Fools," Lynne Jackaman provides soulful vocal backing oohs and ahs, which adds a little sweetness to Bailey's sandpaper lead vocals. It all adds up to an overtly old school sounding rock effort. This kind of rock & roll has a timeless quality to it. Sounds and styles may come and go, but solid, tuneful and intelligent rock music will always find a home in the hearts of true fans.

The albatross is a much-maligned bird. It's a metaphor for dead weight. But in contrast to this album's title, the music here flies beautifully.
