Man I love discovering new amazing and groovy albums and that’s exactly what we have here today.
Looking at the album cover for this album I didn’t really know what to think, I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t know what kind of vibe I was in for so when I click that play button and let the music do its thing I was happily surprised with what came out!
What we have here is an album just shy of 27 minutes of rocking vibes some of the most interesting blends of rock and metal that you’ll find anywhere and I mean anywhere and all of it works! Some of the styles you’re hearing on this album such as rock and roll, blues, country rockabilly, alternative metal and more!
What’s impressive to me is that all the various moods and genre influences make the record sound ‘fun’ which I know may not be a big deal to some (hell for some that maybe the opposite of what you're looking for) but I honest felt like I was having a good time while listening this record, not to mention that the first two tracks sound like something ‘Queen’ would have made in their prime with such high energy and conviction, passion and heart that you just don’t find these days!
I also love how the vocals are so stripped back and mellow, so relaxed in the delivery of the harmonies and chords which I think only enhances the ‘fun’ element I spoke about above that this record has in spades!
I can’t say enough good things about this record! Go give it a listen below and I guarantee you’ll have a great time! Corban Skipwith
