Review of Flash Lightnin’ – For The Sinners (Pheromone/Universal Music Canada)

Flash Lightnin'It has been a few years since we heard anything from Toronto rock band Flash Lightnin’ but at long last, the group has delivered a new slab of bluesy riff-driven rawk for the public’s consumption. Kicking off with the irrepressible “Last Breath”, the band rarely pauses to catch their breath on For The Sinners with the exception of the acoustic ballad “Hard Feelings.” Flash Lightnin’ consistently lay down impeccably great grooves on “On The Radio”, “Free Country” and the bass-heavy “Born With Money”.
