The Most Terrifying Thing
Things Always Change
‘The Most Terrifying Thing are deserving of your ears’ drools their press officer, who may or may not be wearing a Hannibal mask and uncorking a nice Chianti. Oh scary man, we needs our ears! All the better to listen to TMTT’s long player ‘Victoriana’ which must be a treat if this single is any guide.
The Liverpool foursome aren’t quite the most rip-roaring rockers I’ve heard this year – that honour would have to go to Zero Point Field – but are definitely in the frame. They know first impressions count – ‘Things Always Change’ opens with a descending starburst of a guitar lick and never slackens.
This song would have comfortably held its own with anything from the post-Seattle boom of the early 90s and singer Pricey’s cultured howl has more warmth and character than the average rock yelper. He and his empathetic band meld perfectly.
A big, single-riff beast, bearing the DNA of Zeppelin and grunge with a melodic kink, ‘Things Always Change’ has real earworm quality and bespeaks (gadzooks!) a band who should go far.
