THE DOGS DIVINE
SIZE OF THE FIGHT
MORTAL

No frills hard-nosed hard rock is what The Dogs Divine serves up on this Illinois unit’s sophomore effort SIZE OF THE FIGHT. Taking the skeleton of the southern-tinged commercial sound and dragging in through the gutter to comprise a batch of cliché addled and predictable yet undeniably soulful tunes, this quartet makes certain their badass take on heavy (“Hell Wouldn’t Have Me”) is delivered with the necessary levels of gutwrenching aggression (“One and Only”), bluesy swagger (“Gypsy Queen”) and fierce musicianship (“Gussie”) in order to make them stand out amongst the pack. Grab a six-pack and a shotgun and blast this release through the pickup trucks system to feel right at home with the direct approach from The Dogs Divine. -MikeSOS
