Released: 2008, Wannabe Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Engines rev, drums and guitar kick in and the assault begins. London Ontario hard rockers return with their 3rd release (4th if you are counting the Xmas E.P.). This disc is comprised of a dozen original tunes and a cover of the Forgotten Rebels’ “Surfin’ On Heroin” featuring some guest vocals by the Rebels’ own Mickey DeSadist.
The originals are exactly what we have all come to know and enjoy from Bob and band over the past few years. While the selections are not as heavy as his previous offerings in Razor they are far from mellow and predictable. They are similar in style to Motorhead in that the music is borderline Metal and Hard Rock. The songs are upbeat, heavy and loud like Metal should be but there is an element of Rock in them which makes it hard to categorize. Either way you label it, it is good time music to crank up and party your ass off to. Songs like “Down” and “On A Front” contain some of those certain party references. Lyrically the songs tell a bit of a story and you can easily picture most of it in your mind especially the song “Hush” which is the closest to a ballad you’ll probably ever get from Bobnoxious. Listening to the words you just have to wonder if this one actually took place. Did it Bob? The song “Valencrime” shows their view on this over commercialized holiday with a bit of a humorous yet truthful look. The biggest surprise on this disc is the last cut, “Friends Are Friends” with its bluesy lounge styling.
Over 13 Roaring tracks to fuel your next party. Fire it up and turn it too loud.
