Anvil – Legal At Last (Review)

Anvil Announce New Album "Legal At Last"

Review: 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

Anvil have returned with another great album called “Legal At Last”.  While you don’t have to be Einstein to figure out what they’re referring to,  Anvil also has some poignant and timely lyrics about various subjects that the occasional listener and metalhead might actually miss. The band covers some deeper topics about society other than just the legalization of marijuana.  Tracks like Chemtrails, Gasoline, and Plastic In Paradise venture outside typical metal lyrics and show that the band is way more than just stoners and loud musicians.  Although, thankfully they are loud.  Anvil has never pulled any punches. With Anvil, what you see is what you get. Now that Motorhead is gone, Anvil survives as one of the few, raw, straight-ahead metal bands out there. Fans of the band will no doubt absolutely love this album.  With Anvil, you know what it’s going to sound like before you buy it.  You buy it because it’s that same dependable brand of metal that they’ve been delivering since Hard N’ Heavy in 1981!  While the whole album is a slab of metal goodness, my favorite tracks are “I’m Alive”, “Legal At Last” “Food For The Vulture” and “Gasoline”.  Glad to see the boys in Anvil still making metal the old fashioned way. “Legal At Last” is a an enjoyable, solid metal album from beginning to end.
