We gave it a B+

Can there be such a thing as an alt-rock Doobie Brothers? Well, no. But Royal Trux give it a shot, replacing the hazy Stones riffs and couldn’t-be-bothered attitude of past albums with seriously warped, ’70s-style stoner rock. Their sincerity is questionable, but with plenty of cowbell-and-conga drumbeats, raspy vocals, and general rocking out, the execution on Sweet Sixteen is impeccable.
