This band decided to name themselves after a British Naval officer who lived in the 17th and 18th centuries. Their band name had me thinking of Sir Lord Baltimore. The sound isn't exactly the same as that, but it's in the ballpark or at least the right era. Fuzzy, psychedelic tinged proto-metal is the sound that's at the core of Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell's madness. Think the usual suspects like Sabbath and Deep Purple, but also Budgie (that may explain the cover too), Dust, Buffalo and others from that late 60's-to early 70's period when playing heavy music was still in its early stages and these bands were pioneers still figuring out hold to mold and control these sounds. This band captures that raw spirit, and despite having definite influences they still channel their music in such a way that you feel like you experiencing this style for the first time.

When I am given a promo copy of a band entitled Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell with a photo of a man in a giant red chicken head on the cover, I tend to take notice. My first impression was, “Oh my God! Are you having a laugh?” But once Don’t Hear It…Fear It! started spinning I was hooked! What can you say about the album? The band is a throwback to some trippy 70s vibe. The guitars are distorted. The bass guitar is totally in your face. The tone is heavy. The drumming is bombastic. It's got this slow burn southern rock thing happening. Some of the songs are even bluesy with a rock overtone. The only thing missing is the crisp and crackle of needle on vinyl.

Everything about Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s Don’t Hear It… Fear It! is hot! If you are driving in your car down the highway or sitting in traffic on the I95 or M25 this is the album you want spinning. If you are kicked back lounging by yourself or have a few mates over for a BBQ this is the album you want blasting. If you are knee deep in a first person shooter on your XBOX360… oh yesh, you want this album cranked!
