Best Christmas gift EVER.

Confession: I'm obsessed.
I. Love. BlackRebelMotorcycleClub.

This band fulfills all remaining schoolgirl I-love-all-things-rock desires I have in my body. Last spring I wrote a raving review of their album Baby 81, and I'm about to do the same for American X: Baby 81 Sessions, their newest gift to the music world.

Track Listing:
1. "The Likes Of You"
2. "Vision"
3. "The Show's About To Begin"
4. "MK Ultra"
5. "Whenever You're Ready"
6. "20 Hours"
7. "Last Chance For Love"
8. "American X" (short film)

Personal favorites: #3 and #5. American X: Baby 81 Sessions will be available for musical ravaging in the US Dec. 4. Here's what guitarist Robert Levon Been has to say about it on BRMC's blog:
"We're proud of all our songs, even the ones that don't make it on the final album, they have a life force of their own... And we simply wanted to find a way of getting those songs out there.
As well as this short 9 minute film we created for "American X" with our friend and visionary artist Jamie Dagg, with whom we believe in and even paid out of our own pockets to get this released.
The strange thing is that for every album we've recorded there's at least twice as many songs that never see the light of day. So someday, hopefully when we're dead, maybe someone will unearthed all of it remember that, hey maybe those 3 strange kids that all dressed in black weren't so bad after all."

Spin it!
