Product Details

The Darkness’ career didn’t go much further than the waves created by this debut album, lasting a year or two after it came out. Their glam-metal package was lathered in pop-sweetness – a limited vehicle indeed once the novelty wears off. However, it proved to be one that ensured they would etch their mark on the world before disappearing into oblivion, thanks to their secret weapon: ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’.
