CD Review: Facial Hair Becomes The Main Focus Of Australian Rockers The Beards

If you're a fan of facial hair, then I have the perfect album for you. From Australia comes The Beards with their newest full-length album "Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard." Their new album was originally released in March of last year in their home country of Australia, but is finally hitting the U.S. this March 5. It features a dozen rocking songs paying tribute to all that hair below your nose.
The Beards show their passion for the subject matter with the guitar driven, "I'm In The Mood...For Beards." Even if you smirk at the subject matter or at the lyrics of "Got Me A Beard," rest assured that these guys can rock. The album's first single, "You Should Consider Having Sex With A Bearded Man" has an eighties rock feel full of synthesizers, but the lyrics just keep  you grinning as you can't help but sing along to the chorus. The Beards show their passion for the subject witht the emotional jazz/blues piano piece, "Still Got My Beard," before moving on to the acoustic folk/rock of "The Beard Accessory Store." The album closes with the boys showing their true feelings with "There's Nothing Better Than A Beard" and the hidden chant of "Beard Related Song Number 38."
The Beards will be hitting the U.S. in early March, but only for a couple shows. To find out more from this amazing talented band, please visit their website at
