Released: 2008, Roadrunner Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
This Australian band is heavily influenced by early AC/DC. If you are into that then this is the album for you. Bursting onto the scene this 4 piece heavy rock band takes all the elements and cues from Aussie-land’s greatest export. Their explosive energy and good time party lyrics create one of the most talked about releases in awhile.
All 11 tracks on this debut could easily be mistaken for Bon era AC/DC. This is the album that could’ve been BACK IN BLACK had Bon have lived. While the vocals are not as good as the late Bon Scott, Joel holds his own and would be a much more suitable replacement for him than Brian Johnson. While the album is not totally original or unique it does offer some pure heavy guitar driven rock that has been missing in today’s music industry. It is this simple guitar rock that the masses love and cherish. It is hard to pick out standout track(s) as all are equally good and pleasing to the ear.
This is THE guitar party rock album of the year. If you do not own it you are truly missing out on a great thing.
