Division of Laura Lee
“Black City”
(Burning Heart)

With bands like The
Strokes and The White Stripes making headlines doors begin to open for
others with that same kinda sound. The Division of Laura Lee happens to be
one of them. The album “Black City” contains 12 tightly wound retro-punk
tunes along the lines of The Hives mixed with some of The Stooges feel. This
Swedish foursome will make you dance and thank god that “rock music is still
alive”. The lyrics are pretty good and the music is up-tempo. The thing I
enjoyed most about the lyrics was a line that said, “I’m not your toy for
penetration”. Overall I would say that The Division of Laura Lee’s Black
City album is good.  Think Joy Division/ My Bloody Valentine.
