Royal Headache's 26 minutes go by quickly, and while it's not all run-and-gun pacing, another ballad might have helped a bit with the balance.

Their version of soul revival captures the sweat and fire of classic soul music better than almost anyone else in 2012.
No Ripcord
It'd be a stretch to tag them as soul revivalists, but there's no denying these combustible pop tunes are still 26 of the most promising minutes you'll hear all year.

This is a sugar-spiked head-rush of a record that will undoubtedly rank as one of the best punk releases of 2012 and have people buzzing about this band for quite a while. Royal Headache is an absolute joy to listen to all the way through and hopefully signals the start of great things for the young band.

Consequence of Sound

With a handful of infectious hooks and a gem of a vocalist, Royal Headache has the tools to capture an arena audience by the ears.

Fast, Fuzzy and filled with infectious riffs, Royal Headache sums up what punk today is all about. A very promising debut indeed.

Favorite moments: Never Again, Girls, 2 Kinds Of Love.
