The Hives' breakthrough hit “Hate to Say I Told You So” arrived around the time that The Strokes and The White Stripes were ushering in a so-called “rock revival.” That fortunate timing earned the Swedish rockers diamond status on their American introduction, 2002's Your New Favourite Band. Five years later, the band teamed up with producers including Pharrell Williams, Jacknife Lee and Dennis Herring for 2007's overblown The Black and White Album, the only misstep in their otherwise lean discography. Thankfully, the band went D.I.Y. for their latest album, the self-produced Lex Hives, a return to the raw garage rock that earned the group their following.
