Another solid entry in the Clutch back catalogue - perhaps their 5th best to date (out of 9, 10 if you include the rareties album 'Slow Hole to China'). This is no criticism though, as the top 4 albums are absolute stone cold classics.
Clutch continue down the blues rock road, previously displayed on From Beale Street to Oblivion. As always, the riffs and grooves are huge. The incredible musicianship can be compared to Led Zeppelin at their tightest; each component essential to the overall sound. At the forefront is Neil Fallon, with his amazing lyrics and booming voice. Highlights include the single 50,000 Unstoppable Watts, Abraham Lincoln (why wasn't history at school this interesting?!) and Minotaur.
If you are already a Clutch fan, you will lap it up. If you have heard the name before but never been sure, Strange Cousins is the perfect introduction to one of the world's greatest rock bands.
