Stand Back I Don’t Know How Loud This Thing Gets is not an idle threat. It’s reality cause this is one hot, smoking album that sizzles with rockin’ blues. The album delivers its title with a vengeance under the expert guiding hand of Dan Doiron (prounounced De wire-on). Dan hails from down East where he’s well known as an accomplished musician.
This is Dan’s third solo release and it not only features great guitar licks but also highlights Dan’s composing and lyrical skills.
From the opening track of You Give Me Shivers, you know this album is going to take you on a musical journey with his blistering guitar leading the way. Take a listen to the title track and you know where the title Stand Back I Don’t Know How Loud This Thing Gets, especially when he sings “Stand Back this could get dangerous”. And that’s another point worth noting – his vocals blend seamlessly with his guitar to form a sophisticated, yet raw sound.
One of the more remarkable songs on the cd is Killing Each Other Trying To Get Into Heaven. It’s a modern protest song that points at the ironies of present day. “What if we all decided to just get along?” is the plea that resonates through the tune, framed by Dan’s shrieking guitar. It is one powerful song you have to listen to over and over again.
And then there’s Dance Naked. Need I say more? This entire cd is packed with great tunes, great guitar work and great vocals. And oh yeah, great lyrics. Dan Doiron merits serious attention.
