The World Was A Mess But His Hair Was Perfect
The Second single to be released from The Rakes highly acclaimed album 'Ten New Messages', 'The World Was.' is, what can only be described as, an instant classic. It's vibrant, it's classy but most of all it's unforgettable. The guitar riff gets drilled into your head from the minute you press play, so much so that it leaves you humming it for a few hours afterwards. It's so effective, kind of like subliminal messaging.'Buy The Rakes, Listen To The Rakes, Live The Rakes.' It's practically illegal but somehow you must succumb to it. It's so powerful.
The music is delivered with a similar power. The guitars are strumming away vigorously in the background, as the drums play a frantic rhythm above the determined strong vocals. A great song from a great band; what more can I say?
