The Necks: Drive By

Nick Southall, Stylus, 12 January 2004

TALK ABOUT ROCKIST; Drive By consists of one hour-long track, meaning you have to listen to the latest album by this intriguing Australian three-piece all in one sitting or be damned. This is far from being a problem though, firstly because anyone at all familiar with The Necks' music will have been expecting this anyway, and secondly because Drive By is such a wondrous experience that I simply cannot imagine anyone wanting to do anything less than soak it all in at once.

Total word count of piece: 600
