Danny Rexon and crew are back with a hard rocking throwback slice of good old 1980’s sounding sleaze rock and what would have been a superb follow up to 2010’s fantastic ‘New Religion’ album, we will forget about 2012’s ‘Riot Avenue’ for the moment.

This self titled album features eleven hard hitting tracks with all of the hooks and big melodies that they gave us with ‘New Religion’. This record has a huge sound to it with some big production. All catchy, hook laden tracks without a real ballad in sight and just balls to the wall rock ‘n’ roll.

These guys borrow heavily from their 80’s influences and they do so with such passion and fervor that you can’t helped but be sucked into their music. The catchiness of the choruses on songs like ‘Outlaw’, ‘Girls Of The 80’s’ and ‘Sound Of The Loud Minority’ are undeniable and you can tell that the band loves what they do, and they do it well.

Everything about this record just works. Productions is fantastic, the band sounds excellent, the vocals are top notch and the music is stellar. This Swedish band gets it all right this time around and have given their strongest release to date.

If you are a fan of the band’s first two releases, Crashdiet, Santa Cruz, Reckless Love or modern sleaze rock then don’t hesitate to pick this one up. It is a great throwback to the heyday of sleaze rock and is just an all around fantastic album.

Really nothing negative to say about this release. It is a very strong and solid album through and through and I can’t wait for the next studio offering from these guys.

 

Standout tracks:

 

‘Sound Of The Loud Minority’.

‘Outlaw’.

‘Girls Of The 80’s’.

‘All Looks, No Hooks’.

‘Call To Action’.
