Sweden's excellentTSOOL are anti-materialistrock roundheads withenough cavalier spirit toallow them to enjoy theirchosen creative formwithout unnecessary selfconsciousness.There'snothing very original here(their fifth album, anotherdouble), but the obviouspleasure the group takein their influences – Zep,Oasis, Nirvana, Kinks –means their inner thunderalways brings rain andfresh air.
