One Way Ticket To Hell... And Back (Edited)
by The Darkness
Released: Nov 2005
Label: Atlantic Records
With a Spinal Tap-esque album title, a Zamfir inspired panflute intro, glass shattering falsettos and track names like "Knockers" and "Bald," it's easy to write off the Darkness' sophomore album as hair metal novelty. But if it rocks harder than the entire sum of the 1980s, is it still just a novelty?
