Well, if Noel Gallagher is allowed to wake up and think he's John Lennon, and Mika can channel the pop-tart spirit of Freddie Mercury, then why shouldn't this 22-year old rocker from Chicago be T. Rex for our listening pleasure?

To be fair this album does offer a little more than mere retro manoeuvres (but only a little more) -- however if you haven't heard T. Rex in a wee while this might get you digging out Electric Warrior.

Nothing new under the sun?
