The Quireboys – Twisted Love (2016)

Quireboys_TwistedLove4 out of 5 Stars!

In 2016, Britain’s The Quireboys released a brand new collection of tracks, and in my opinion, it was definitely a “return to form” after the band’s previous album, St. Cecilia and the Gypsy Soul, which I found a bit of a disappointment.

On Twisted Love, however, vocalist Spike (a Rod Stewart soundalike) and his bandmates once again conjure up ghostly soundscapes reminiscent of Faces (and Rolling Stones), with a ton of catchy riffs, hummable melodies, and up-tempo rhythms. From “Torn And Frayed,” “Shotgun Way,” and “Gracie B (Part 2),” to “Killing Time,” “Breaking Rocks,” “Life’s A Bitch,” and the bouncy title track that reminds me of an updated version of “Brother Louie” by Stories, this is ’70s-style party rock at its finest.
