New Music Review: The Kills 'Blood Pressures'

After her stint fronting the Dead Weather with Jack White, Alison Mosshart reunites The Kills and returns to her original guitarist, Jamie Hince, to releases the duo's most intense and best effort to date, Blood Pressures.

The Kills have always taken a minimalistic approach on earlier garage sounding albums, but there are a variety of sounds on the new record.  The mood of the album is strikingly intense and Mosshart wails with reckless abandonment.  Highlights include the bluesy "Nail in My Coffin" and the mood shifting "Satellite.

Showbiz Kids Rating: 7.5 out of possible 10 "Recommended"
