Shakin' and stirring, the Morning After's On the Rocks is straightforward, ambitious rock. With only brief nods to alt-rock, the members of this Cleveland quintet spend their debut album showing how well they can play their instruments. Behemoth guitarist Justin Smith squeezes out blues riffs and classic-rock solos -- "Homewrecker" could be a Blue Öyster Cult deep cut.
