BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB...Specter At The Feast  (2013)
Specter At The Feast is the 7th album from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.  It is currently at number 35 on the U.S. Billboard album chart.   I was surprised by this album.  It's actually pretty good.  "Let The Day Begin" flat out rocks! I really enjoyed the softer "Lullaby" and "Sometimes The Light" is a fantastic 'dreamy' track.  The album is almost an hour long but I did not find myself anxious for it to end.  A pretty good listen, I recommend it with a 3 out of 5 stars.
