The six-track EP, "Start Your Engines" by The Royal Spuds from Holland is superb to say the least. I listened to it four times before
I could commence to writing this review, simply because I was enjoying it too much to distract myself from the pleasure of hear-
The title track, "Start Your Engines", is a vocal that is a call to start your engines; much like you would hear at a racetrack...I found it clever and amusing. The first song, "Morrisons's Warrior", is a highly energetic instrumental that definately gets your heart racing. Their renditions of "Come Out Ye Black & Tans" and "Finnigan's
Wake" are lively and refreshing.
My favorite track is "Last Call", a song about living life as a pauper. Lead vocalist, Maarten Van Vliet is one incredible singer...I got shivers listening to him in this track...his voice is commanding and heartfelt. The instrumentalists compliment Maarten in such a way you get the feeling the band is one...they fit perfectly together.
The Royal Spuds are one talented band and you can hear it in every song in "Start Your Engines". You HAVE to own this EP...I can guarantee you will LOVE it!!!
