Looking at the cover for The Trews’ No Time For Later, you might be wondering if the band sounds as intriguing as their Ralph Steadman-inspired cover art looks. The answer is yes, this album is the sort of rock album that’s allowed to have thong-clad women on the cover. The third album from Canadian-born The Trews, No Time For Later is a diverse effort that draws pleasantly from classic rock influences with songs ranging from hard-rock anthems to introspective, mid-tempo numbers.
The Trews dive right into one of the album’s most pop-friendly songs with the title-track “No Time For Later.” The song has a gleaming, sing-along style chorus and addictive guitar hooks that could make it right at home on rock radio. However, what truly makes the song great is the organ and country-influenced melody that gives the song a Neil Young folk-rock feel.
