On Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, it’s hard for a new listener not to compare Band of Skulls to the White Stripes and Radiohead. There’s little doubt that both bands had an influence on them, but I found some tracks to be well done, hard-driving and uplifting rock ballads. I would love to see this band live and witness how they manage to set themselves apart from their influences in creative ways.
