Listing Detail Tabs

Sweden's clown princes of garage-punk returned in 2007 with THE BLACK AND WHITE ALBUM. While primal street-tough riffage and Iggy-style vocal prancing remain the band's bread and butter, the Hives display an obvious desire to experiment here. For one thing, two tracks ("T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S." and "We All Right!") were produced by Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes--a talent for certain, but not one often associated with the Hives brand of retro-rock. In addition to the funky edge displayed on those tracks, the album also boasts a spooky lo-fi organ instrumental ("A Stroll Through Hive Manor"), a synth-driven new rave tune ("Giddy Up!"), and a Tom Waits-style neo-cabaret number ("A Puppet On A String"). BLACK AND WHITE may prove a curiosity to long-time fans, but for a whole new audience, it should confirm what lead singer Howlin' Pele Almqvist has been saying for years: "The Hive are you new favorite band."
