Music Review: 'The Charlatans UK' (1995)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: The Charlatans UK; Genre: Rock

Scavenging the late '60s and early '70s for inspiration, the Charlatans blast Hammond-organ-dominated rave-ups, striving to evoke old Stones but sounding more like Delaney & Bonnie. Energetic, sincere, and a bit thin-voiced, featuring slide guitars and hummable tunes, their enthusiastic retro-ing recalls a more current model: the Black Crowes with hipper references. B
