I love the Protomen. Their live shows are theatrical, hilarious, exhilarating, and always a good time. I might be a bit biased because they're my friends, and because their music was the soundtrack to the beginning of my relationship with Keith, but no one can get me out of my seat like this band. Way back in December 2010, they covered Queen for an entire night at Exit/In, and it was one of the best shows I saw that year. This librarian was singing, fist-pumping, and dancing like a maniac. Wayne channeled Freddie perfectly.
So I've been waiting impatiently for this album for, like, ever. It's finally out, and it's awesome! As Death & Taxes says: "Its biggest fault, if I’m to be truly honest, is that it literally sounds exactly like you think Queen would sound playing at the top of their careers in a small venue. That is: too good to be true." It's big perfect fun, y'all.
Buy it! Love it! Give the Protomen all your money!
