Overall, High Crimes is breath of fresh air for hard rock and just about every surrounding style. The Damned Things bring some grit and their own brand of greasy rhythm and it shines many times. Take the songs as individual pieces and you will find ones that you love. For all the albums out there trying to make a statement or make a band famous, here’s one that’s just meant to listen and enjoy.
