Doosu make a powerful and grand musical statement. The two vocalists are excellent, bringing an emotional vulnerability as well as a gritty edge to their performances. It's impressive to hear them go from throat-ripping shouting to a quavering, almost angelic, melodicism. The musicianship is stellar, with massive riffs pounded out with extreme dexterity and athleticism. The song "Hotshot," for instance, is an exuberant and ferocious number that begins with crushing rhythms -- the bassline at the beginning comes at you like a rabid pit bull -- strange, minimal yet perversely pretty guitar harmonics, and spoken vocals. All this somehow expertly leads to wonderfully anthemic choruses (well, they might be considered choruses) where tight, instantly memorable riffs careen at the listener while the singers intone (with what might by a sneer on their lips), "Hotshot!" This is modern guitar rock like it should be: soaring, gritty, passionate and unforgettable.
