Beautiful Creatures
Deuce
October 2005
Released: 2005, Spitfire Records/ Eagle Rock Entertainment
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: Keith McDonald

When the Beautiful Creatures released their debut album via Warner Brothers Records in 2001 the album made a few waves while not selling all that well. At the time bands like Jet and Velvet Revolver either hadn’t been formed or weren’t off the ground just yet. Beautiful Creatures, like Velvet Revolver and Jet, delivers straight-ahead guitar-driven, radio-ready rock ‘n roll. From the opening track ‘Anyone’ all the way through the band delivers catchy, melodic tracks that make this album worthy of not only major label distribution, but major label push and money – neither of which Joe Leste and company will get.

Joe, better known in the hard rock community as the former lead singer of Bang Tango, delivers strong vocals and lyrics that fit well with the direction the band is going in. But what really grabs your attention and makes this CD a must buy for fans is the guitar work by Mark Simpson. Well though out and placed riffs that make good songs great. The best song on the disc is “Save Me’ which showcases some great guitar riffs – this song would be great for radio.

The band is better known for it’s great live shows but this CD does offer something. I guess the only problem is the new label that they’re currently on. Spitfire does have the money or manpower to take this disc anywhere. They started out well with the signings of Alice Cooper and Twisted Sister and LA Guns but since then they haven’t done much. Hopefully Beautiful Creatures will get enough good reviews that allows hard rock fans to know it’s out there and worth picking up.

Beautiful Creatures
Deuce
February 2006
Released: 2005, Spitfire Records
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

Joe LeSte and company return with their second disc and their first for Spitfire Records. It too some time to get this album completed because LeSte didn’t want to have any throwaway songs on it. This persistence paid off well as this is one excellent hard rockin’ CD.



The first single “Anyone” opens up the album with it’s aggressive vocals and steady beat. The guitar is slightly distorted and similar in sound to late 80’s metal without sounding dated. There are many great hard rock tracks on this sophomore release. Some of the standouts include “Freedom”, “Save Me” , “Empty” and the ultra heavy “Straight To Hell”. Joe’s vocals on the album are great but he uses too much growl/effects at times. Musically there is no complaints: all instrmentation is mixed well and executed with precision.



The 4 year wait was worth it, Beautiful Creatures release a collection of songs more powerful than their first.
