The Darkness aren’t your typical Hall of Fame induction. But Permission to Land is hardly your typical record. Released in 2003 when the mainstream music press’s idea of “rock” was the Strokes and Jack Fucking White, Permission to Land exploded with an an energy and swagger that honestly hadn’t truly been tapped into since Guns ‘n’ Roses unleashed Appetite for Destruction nearly two decades earlier.
While the Darkness prepares to release a new LP, Easter is Cancelled, in October, Permission to Land now takes its rightful place in the Decibel Hall of Fame, complete with a six-page story on that making of the album and interviews with all four original members who performed on it.
