The Blood Arm - Infinite Nights Album Review

The Blood Arm Infinite Nights Album

Review of Infinite Nights Album by The Blood Arm

After the release of three albums, including 2006's critically lauded 'Lie Lover Lie', The Blood Arm decided a change of scene was needed and relocated from their Los Angeles base to Berlin.  Funded with the help of their fans, those local to their new home will have a chance to see the investment performed during a tour of Germany in October.

Far from an all-guns-blazing start, The Blood Arm begin the record with slow-burner 'Wrong Side Of The Law', a number that slowly builds in intriguing fashion.  Much more forceful is 'Midnight Moan', understandably selected as the lead track, which brings the sort of lo-fi blues rock that Jack White specialises in and at a quality to match.  A switch of direction brings the soft and melodic 'Oh Ali Bell!', a track that is lullaby-like in presentation but also forgettable.  This also applies to 'Happy Hour' and 'Let Me Be Your Guide', resulting in a frustrating position of beautiful music not incorporating the hooks required.  The flip-side to this coin is found in 'Bubblegum', a song that quickly moves from spoken word to infectious and quirky, doing well to narrowly avoid stepping into the bounds of annoying.  Also worth a mention is 'Sex Fiend' a frantic injection of quirky rock and roll energy in the midst of the album that stands out for genuine enjoyment and not just due to being a change of pace in proceedings.  More like this would certainly raise 'Infinite Nights' into an album that leaves a more memorable impression.
