The Street
The Divine Debauchery
February 2008
Released: 2007, Music Buy Mail/Artist Workxx
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

The Utah based The Street is about to launch their sixth album since their 1997 debut THE MIRACLE TREND. According to the bio the band is heavily influenced by Bon Jovi, Led Zeppelin and Van Halen and has performed with acts like LA Guns, Dokken, Warrant, Great White and Alice Cooper. The Street’s philosophy is “If we stay true to writing the music that is within us we can move the listener as well” which is a great way of thinking. The Street’s contribution to the music scene is a heavier kind of melodic hardrock mixed with elements of sleaze/glam. The guys have injected a whole lot of energy, vitality and spark in the music which makes it all sounds great.

THE DIVINE DEBAUCHERY is one of those albums that you love from the moment you push play. Their music has a lot in common with Skid Row, Faster Pussycat, LA Guns and Dokken. My absolute favorite moments are “Greetings From the Ghetto”, “Devil’s Dilemma”, “Step It Up”, “Vendetta’s My Name”, “Shovel” and “Head or be Dead”. Those songs are the golden moments of the album and are heavy hard-pounding melodic hardrock songs with a lot of attitude and balls. The rhythm section paints a solid wall of massive and heavy riffs and the guitars deliver catchy riffs that only add excitement to the music.

The tempo slows down but the heaviness remains in “Light Of Day”, “Nemesis” and “Walls”. The lead vocals dominate the production in these songs and the guitars are faded down in favor of the vocals. I know that I have practically picked every song on the album as killer tracks but it’s so hard to choose just a few, that’s how great this album is.

I am really impressed by The Street and I can warmly recommend the album to every hardrocker out there. This album makes you happy and puts a smile on your face.
