Rival Sons: Pressure and Time Review

To say expectations were high for Pressure and Time would be an understatement. After a strong debut with Before The Fire and a stellar EP could Rival Sons possibly keep the momentum going with Pressure and Time? The answer is a resounding yes.

The single and title track, “Pressure and Time,” has been an overnight sensation on YouTube with over 300,000 views in its first three weeks. “Get Mine,” another standout track is currently featured on a commercial for Jeremiah Weed. Rival Sons have seemingly come out of nowhere to take the rock world by storm. Pressure and Time is pure rock and roll the way it was meant to be played.

Pressure and Time moves at an extremely fast pace with most songs in the 2:30-3:30 range. Rival Sons are a magnificent breath of fresh air and could finally be that modern band with a classic sound to receive play on the radio. Pressure and Time is a strong candidate for rock album of the year as Rival Sons deliver the breakout performance of 2011.
