Out of a more psychedelic album, the track American Guilt hit me like a ton of bricks. It’s big distorted blues guitar riffs are driven by John Bonham sounding drums. It creates a sound that is more reminiscent of acts like Jack White or The Black Keys, and came in stark contrast to the more refined tracks on the rest of the album Sex & Food.
The track works well in its own right, but really shines through in the context of an album. It provides a shot of rough energy that keeps the listener intrigued.
