Destined to be one of the year’s best releases. CKY have returned to give fans an album filled with pure kick ass hard rock. Each and every one of the eleven tracks on CARVER CITY are meant to be turned up to eleven and enjoyed to the fullest extent.
Starting off with “Hellions On Parade” and not letting up until the last note of “The Era of An End”, CKY are pleasing fans and gaining many new ones here. With a song like “Imaginary Threats” the song starts with drums then…BAM! The vocals punch you in the face. The catchy chorus and radio friendly hooks are sure to make this one a single. Another stand out on here is “ A#1 Roller Rager” which showcases more of Jess’ killer drumming, add in some 80’s sounding keyboards and you have yet another hit on your hands.
A fantastic release that will make it to many people’s “Best of ‘09” lists. This is one disc you should definitely own this year. It will spend allot of time in your player once you buy it.
