The Hives
"Tyrannosaurus Hives"

This is only of the most tightly-wound albums I've ever heard. It's as if the band asked "why, if you can do a song in 3 minutes, can you not do it in one?"
Each track is sizzling with frantic energy, crammed shoulder-to-shoulder yet, magically, with daylight showing between one guitar riff and the next.
On top of this "Screamin'" Pelle Almqvist unleashes his trademark stylings.
Of the Hives' three full-length albums, I consider this their finest output to date.
