Rhett May has successfully written and released an album that challenges the cookie-cutter landscape of rock music today. Rhett was originally born in Calcutta before moving to Australia. He showcases the culture he was born into with his Sitar playing and also leaves no doubt about his love of classic rock. His melodic lines are engaging and played with impressive mastery while still balancing perfectly with the distorted guitars and vocals.
Mays lyrics are top notch as well. His observational writing is incredibly successful and, lyrically, his songs are all more than satisfactory. If you enjoy the cohesive album writing of classic rock, Creatures of the Night should definitely be on your listening list. Though the songs vary heavily in stylistic intent, orchestration and lyrical content- the album maintains an outstanding flow and will satisfy you from the first note of the first song until the reverb ends on the final track of the work.
To get a taste of what the album has to offer, head to Noisetrade where Rhett is giving away a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lexxi May”. If you love what you hear, then head to iTunes to get yourself a copy of the album.
