Sweeden's Sweetest Treat - Hard Rock Candy
Justin S. Lukenbill | 06/12/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Sweeden's Hellacopters are nothing new. They've been on the scene now for 10+ years. This release is only a continuation of their long tapestry of slash-and-burn rock albums that prooves once again that this un-American group knows more about American R & R history than most American R & R bands.

If you're not hip, here's a walking stick: The Hellacopters get a lot of comparrisons to The Black Crowes. While this is a half-truth, think of The Hellacopters as The Black Crowes with more MC5 than Faces. Their newest release shows these four Sweeds (plus an additional keyboardist who doesn't get in the way) getting into more blues-based ideas rather than their early recordings that are comprised of straight-up aggressive rock songs. Hell, maybe rock and roll is dead for The Hellacopters. Oh wait - the album title now makes sense."
