The Dead Daisies
Make Some Noise (LP)
Released: 2016, Spitfire Music
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
John Corabi and The Dead Daisies return with their third album in as many years. Like most, I became aware of this band due to it’s who’s who star studded line-up. Upon first hearing the music I found it generic and forgettable. With the release of this album a few month’s ago now I can honestly say that it was not on my personal list to check out. That changed one day when I saw the you tube clip of them covering The Who’s “Join Together”.
I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of this album on LP which is my preferred form of listening. The 2 LP set is pressed on transparent red vinyl and looks quite nice. The LP’s were flat and quiet and required no cleaning, which is a bonus. I sat down and gave it my undivided attention. The music was good and I was enjoying it but feared it would be like the last (which I only have digitally) and be forgotten as soon as I lift the needle from the groove. After playing both LP’s I found it to be more enjoyable than the last. I then decided to give it another spin immediately after. It was more enjoyable than the first. Luckily it came with a CD which I popped into my car’s player and the more it played, the more I liked it.
MAKE SOME NOISE is one of those albums that will take a couple spins to get into and the more you play it, the more you’ll like it. Simply put, it’s a great Rock & Roll record. There is nothing groundbreaking amazing, just a good solid album from start to finish. There are two cover songs on here, the aforementioned “Join Together” and CCR’s “Fortunate Son” which is miles above the classic original. They really kick it up a notch and inject some attitude to it giving it’s meaning more depth. Originals like “Mainline” and the opening track, “Long Way To Go” set the tone for the album. If they continue down this road sounding lie that, I will be a fan for life.
After a couple spins of the LP’s and several plays of the CD in my car I can say that this is one of the top albums of 2016. A fun listen and solid Rock & Roll album from the get go. I will be going back to revisit their earlier tunes thanks to this release. Do yourself a favour and go buy this wonderful slab of red vinyl. It IS one of THE best albums of the year. Buy it, Crank it and MAKE SOME NOISE.
