That's a capable line-up and they do well here, the downsides being with songwriting rather than performance. That's especially odd given that that oomph was there from the very beginning of this album, so toning it down had to have been a deliberate choice and, as an obvious enough failure, I'm surprised they didn't drop it from the album. Fortunately, there are few downsides, even where descriptions might suggest one.
Whatever I say about If This is Heaven sounds like a negative, for instance, as it feels like an unusually perky song put out as a single by a much heavier band just to try and break the mainstream. However, this band do it very well indeed and, while such songs are usually the worst on their respective albums, this one could be considered a highlight by some. It's not one of mine but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The final tracks all feel like other genres rocked up, but with varied results.
California Queen is, of all things, a pop punk song that feels rather out of place. I think it's supposed to show a lighter side to the band, and it's not a bad song, but it seems at odds with the earlier, more vicious approach because this is a song for a party band and they've been all about the music up until this point. In between those two is Battlecry , which works better, even though it has an early U2 vibe, probably because it's heavied up instead of watered down and that helps the song immensely.
So this is a mixed bag. Kudos to Carl Sentance for putting such a solid line-up together and for not confining it to a single style. Some of the ideas work better than the others, but it's decent stuff and it often becomes much more than that. For me, it's the early songs because my favourite four are the first four, when they're playing hard rock with a metal edge. It's tight and it's vicious and it rocks. And, entirely separate to new Persian Risk and Nazareth material, let's see another solo album sooner than another dozen years.
Post a Comment. By Hal C. But things may change as his second solo album Electric Eye saw the daylight on the 19th of November Carl Sentance is a great singer, that is beyond doubt. It sounds like he has no problems sounding light and heavy at the same time which sure adds a lot to the overall quality. The album goes on and it is interesting how old, yet at the same time also modern it sounds.
And that beautiful bass sound! It might make the listener think of the legendary John Entwistle of The Who; had he not passed away back in , he might have done today if he got asked to play it — because he would have literally bored himself to death.
But surprisingly, that bass line matches the rest of the instruments really well, therefore it is not bad. According to the Japanese beliefs it is four that is the bad luck number. This one kicks properly!
In case anyone has ever wondered what Red Hot Chili Peppers might sound like combined with Metal — they need to wonder no more. This album is getting more interesting with every song. It is worth mentioning that there are many deep and touching solos on this album. Incredible how well the John Frusciante sound of electric guitar can work with Metal and it should not be much of a surprise — whether one loves or hates the RHCP, they always deliver quality music.
That song starts very similar to how the album Hybrid Theory does.
