The ep opens with the joyous rocker 'I'll Be Your Man' and immediately my appreciation-meter starts running. This is a great song, reminding me of the origins of hard rock. You know, the age of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, The Who... Well, this a great start but there's more where that came from. Title track 'Glorious Days' even incorporates some elements of soul by bringing in a backing vocals choir that seems to know a thing or two about gospel. Nice. Very nice.
'Everybody Gets It Wrong' is a bluesy ballad, and a pretty good one too. By now, I'm starting to regret the fact that I waited so long to finally give this album a chance. Shortly after, we get some more blues in 'Black Moon' and I can't help but think about acts like Black Crowes or Rolling Stones. By the end, blues completely takes over in 'Down The Road', a song that could have been written by The Scabs, even though they're not a blues band.
So yeah, I was wrong to wait so long and I'm really happy that I finally listened to album, over and over again actually. To my defence, the biography also mentioned Oasis, another one of my firm dislikes. Anyway, if you're in for a decent slab of blues rock, you need this album in your collection and you need this band on the upcoming summer festivals. I sure hope they pop-up on one I'm going to. I'm sure Faith & Spirit will bring a smile on a lot of people's faces.
