'Truth Be Told' is the prefect distillation of his musical influences and showcase for the bands alarming virtuosity. Mixing the spring-loaded sleaze-Funk of Grand Central Station with the Blues Rock swagger of Led Zeppelin, the melodic finesse of Prince with the metallic menace of Queens of the Stone Age, it leaves the listener wide-eyed and unzipped; Nick Hirsch garrotes the air with lethally taut precision psych; Kerim Kez Gunes volleys of bass notes ricochet around the room like rubber bullets; and Virgil Howe, leading the charge from behind the drums as he stampedes across his kit. For Truth Be Told they revisit live favourites " from the haunting and redemptive Somewhere in the Romance with its jackknifing guitar lines, to the adrenalized head down charge of Get Down, and debuted several new compositions while exploring more progressive directions with songs like album closer Spanish Silver. Meanwhile, producer Kostas Latrelis muscular and imaginative production puts their rock heft at the heart of the sound while his lightness of touch ensures the set never stumbles under its own weight. Most of all, it coaxes the subtleties and inventiveness of Nicks melodies and his acerbic yet heartfelt lyrics to the fore. On Truth Be Told the standard Blues-Rock cock-out strut is replaced with wry self-doubt and emotional perceptiveness.
