Studio D'Lux delivers a truly great piece of that arena-filling classic rock sound with 'Ain't Good Enough.' A nice nod to that epic 70s sound definitely reigns supreme over the piece. Chugging rhythms give the whole thing a driving force as it races through with a strong sense of defiance. By ensuring that each element gets fully accentuated there is a grace to the entire experience. Full of so much gusto they make sure that one can get completely lost in the wildness that they so effortlessly trade in.

New York City. 1863. The Civil War raged on. An extraordinary thing occurred amid the dangerous streets and crumbling tenement houses of the Five Points, the notorious 19th-century Lower Manhattan slum. For many years, Irish immigrants escaping the devastation of the Great Famine settled alongside free-born Black Americans and those who escaped slavery, arriving by means of the Underground Railroad. The Irish, relegated at that time to the lowest rung of America's social status, received a sympathetic welcome from their Black neighbors (who enjoyed only slightly better treatment in the burgeoning industrial-era city). The two communities co-existed, intermarried, raised families, and shared their cultures in this unlikeliest of neighborhoods.
