Unattractive Revolution by Rockeyes
The Unattractive Revolution (4/5)
This has to be one of my most anticipated CD’s not only for me but also for sleaze metal fans around the world. I got a call at work from my wife saying the new
CD came in and I was anxious all day, all kinds of thoughts and emotions filled my being.
I heard some of the early demo material that my buddy
sent me and loved it, but those were demos and
was still looking for a replacement for the Great One Dave Lepard (RIP). Well
found that person in
I want to express that when listening to the CD that you have to put your feeling aside and try not to compare
. This is a new era in
’s evolution so look to the future with these boys.
First off, you can’t deny the great songwriting by the boys; every song has killer chords and hooks which make them standout. When I was talking to
, I asked him, ‘
What it is like writing without Dave?
’ his answer was, ‘
I still use the same secret magical technique we used together
“In The Raw” starts thing off in true
style with riveting hooks, great catchy chords and the vocals being a little raspy but fitting perfectly in the
mold. The boys still hold tight with the fantastic harmonies which are a key element to success.
“Like A Sin” keeps the ball rolling as they kick it up a notch driving home another fierce shredding tune, the song just elevates and the chorus is outstanding,
goes off the hook.
“Falling Rain” is one of my personal favorite songs and should be a number one song on the Swedish Charts very soon. It rocks yet has a softer side of melodic rhythms.
does one helluva job which is not easy trying to win over
fans and this is just one example of great musicians collaborating in harmony.
hook up with the harmonies and background vocals throughout the CD makes the songs run smooth and you can hear the excitement on “Alone” that also features
. “Alone” is not your typical style
power tune, its more melodic yet still adds the power of
guitar which makes the song heavier. If I had to give a comparison of
’s voice, I would say he’s on the same wave as
“XTC Overdrive” is one of those arena songs that will have crowd participation and is another high profile tune that rocks your socks off and check the pipes on
Listening over and over again
and I see no reason that success isn’t just a step away. The CD is excellent, just a notch below “
Rest In Sleaze
Note: Rumors before the new release of “
The Unattractive Revolution
” are completely untrue that
left the band as you can see by the tour dates on their official site; I would like to thank
for thanking our site and me on the new record. I can’t wait for guys to hit the US shores!!!
