The title sonf, ''One Way Ticket To Hell and Back'' totally kicks ass. Great guitars, musicianship and arrangement.

That'd be 2 albums so far...

...13 more Queen studio albums to carbon copy to go.

LOL! Jingles...be nice now... ;-)

Don't forget the BOX set too! The Darkness will probably copy it before Queen ever even releases it! Don't hold your breath!

Somebody try to explain to me how the Darkness are musically similar to Queen. Please forgive me, but I still don't see it.

I don't see it either. Not even a little bit.

I never said they were similar. I feel so honored - Flashman posted on my topic!

I can see the similarities a bit, mostly in the layered guitar parts, but I think they draw inspiration from a bunch of bands and aren't just 'ripping off Queen'. I hear a lot of AC/DC and some Thin Lizzy in there, too, but there shouldn't be anything wrong with a band sounding like another one early on in their career before they've managed to develop their own sound...Queen did, too. :)

It does sound like AC/DC but with some ridiculous falsetto. I mean, I love it, but if I had to choose one adjective to describe it, it would be ridiculous. But it's great. I have to say I really like the Darkness, mostly because they reinstilled hard rock in an industry that was beginning to lose its heaviness.

As for layered guitar parts, I don't really see too much of that - no more than usual for a band. But in the solos I have noticed such things as overtracking thirds and such, but nothing too polyphonic.
