The Hives
Tyrannosaurus Hives
(Universal)
It is can be hard to look beyond the shtick and attitude, the white ties and chaps, the kooky band-member pseudonyms—but sometimes it pays to pay no attention. The Hives’ mod styling is ludicrous but boy, can they rock. Tyrannosaurus Hives is colossal, pounding, backbreaking rhythms into stiletto-heeled guitar riffs at a pace that only Rocket from rhe Crypt could endure. “Scream Through Head” and the single “Walk Idiot Walk” are shameless, exciting and a hell of a lot of fun.
—Dave Hayden
