With their forthcoming sixth album just landed, Texas Hippie Coalition or THC as they are known as show no signs of slowing down, if anything it is quite the opposite.

If the last album “Dark Side Of Black” was their best work to date then this one blows that out of the water and then some. The same big sound is there but it seems more evolved and refined without losing any of its rawness and power. “Moonshine” opens up proceedings with a chugging riff and massive drums and Big Dad Ritch give it up big time on the vocals. This is Southern hard rock at its finest and its only just starting, “Dirty Finger” is a monster track, pounding drums courtesy of Devon Carothers and some excellent riffs and a tidy little solo on what can only be described as a barroom anthem.

“Bring It Baby” changes things slightly with a strange but funky opening before the trademark riffs and vocals kick you right in the teeth true Southern style. “Ride Or Die” slows things down considerably, it has a real buddy film montage feel of it and yes while that sound cringy and cheesy it is not and it is actually a fantastic song and a tip of the hat to those that have gone before them. “Tongue Like A Devil” brings things right back up to speed nicely with a groovy little number packed full of riffs and a tasty solo. “Stevie Nicks” is a grinding track that pays tribute to the Fleetwood Mac Legend and her enchanting ways, a great track. “Tell It From The Ground” is an absolute cracker of a tune, heavy riffs with a blistering drum and bass beat and Ritch giving it socks on vocals, possibly the best track on here.

The final track on the album is “Blue Lights On”, opening up with sirens wailing before smashing you in the face with some good old fashioned balls to the wall hard rock, with heavy riffs, drums and a nice solo, a rather apt way to finish off what is a cracking album
