Rockabilly with a laid back, sixties sort of country and western. Hints of Johnny Cash and the Nekromantix can be heard on Crazy Theory, while listeners will be treated to a slower and more intricate effort with NSA. The effort is deliberate and soars on the back of soulful and intimate vocals. A rich production allows the guitar to shine brightly, while That Man adds a haunting bit of brass in the Ennio Morricone tradition. The narrative style of Ten Ton Man is unparalleled, with a rich story told in That Man that continues into the glitzy, Voltaire-meets-Vegas approach of A Bone to Pick. The Permission to Sin EP touches upon a number of genres and stands up to repeat listens.
