VOLBEAT / Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies 
While they still mesh thrash metal, rockabilly and punk, the lines between the genre-hopping are less apparent as they all meld together quite organically now. It's as if they've finally found that spot of comfort and it shows with the enthusiastic performances and tight compositions on this album. I don't know why Volbeat always feel the need to write 1or 2 songs for each album that sound dangerously close to Nickelback or Creed but fortunately it doesn't take away from the insane enjoyment of the rest of the songs. In short, this album is feckin' great great fun.
