Album Review: Buffalo Tom - Skins (Scrawny)
Fighting the inevitable drag of maturity to regain their rock'n'roll stamina
Where that album delivered a fierce shot of good ol’ fashioned rock’n’roll, though, this follow-up might reasonably be described as both ‘sensitive’ and ‘mature’ – generally the sort of behaviour to be actively discouraged.
Happily, it makes a good go of bucking the trend here and there, with singer Bill Janovitz’s full-throated delivery investing his words with the kind of gritty undercurrent of self-loathing and inner torment that makes ‘Skins’ jolt with bursts of fresh energy.
