Koen B. : One Last Shot debuted with the ’First Gear’ EP a few years back and now their first full-length ‘Even Cowboys Have Sundays’ was released. The aforementioned EP was kinda nice but I can’t remember playing it after having reviewed it two-and-a-half years back. I think the same will occur with ‘Even Cowboys Have Sundays’. I mean: this CD is neither great neither bad and therefore mediocrity is around the corner.
What I don’t like about this CD is that the individual tracks sometimes sound too familiar, which for sure is not a bad thing but I want to be challenged or entertained whist listening to it, but nothing really special is happening here. What I do like is the fact that these French dudes have interwoven various styles like U.S.A. hardrock and some southern boogie woogie within their sound and it rocks like fuck. You might sometimes think they are a genuine U.S. band. Therefore I’m inclined to give One Last Shot the benefit of the doubt again. Next time I want some real killer tunes that rock like fuck!
