When they appeared on the scene around the turn of the century, BRMC didn’t seem to have the same clarity of vision to hang with the garage revivalists they were lumped in with (The White Stripes, The Hives), nor did they have the songs to match up favorably with their obvious influence, The Jesus and Mary Chain. Time had been good to them, though, and more than a decade later, the engrossing “Let the Day Begin” from their sixth album, Specter At The Feast, is a reverberating beast of a track that sounds all their own.
