CrashDiet: Generation Wild

Melodic (Glam/Sleaze) Hard Rock
5.0/5.0



Some minor bookkeeping to start. CrashDiet's latest, Generation Wild was released April 2010 on Swedish label Gain/Sony Music (and possibly elsewhere). Now signed to Frontiers in Italy the band is getting the push in North America and, again, I suspect elsewhere.

Generation Wild is CrashDiet's third album with their third new singer, Simon Cruz. It also may be there best album to date (although their debut was also rather impressive). Generation Wild has solid musicianship with the vocal arrangements being particularly impressive. The songwriting, from lyric to arrangement, is cogent, dynamic, and refreshing. Little comparison should be made to the greats of the glam/sleaze/hard rock of yesteryear. CrashDiet has claimed the genre as their very own. And Generation Wild sounds terrific: crisp and roaring. Frankly, there is not a single bad song on this work.

Even with that said, let's highlight a few tracks. So Alive rocks as clever and catchy. Rebel blisters with all the raucousness that made sleaze/glam so risque from the beginning. Save Her, a ballad of tragedy, displays CrashDiet's sound songwriting, and Cruz' fine vocal talent. For more satisfying and entertaining rock, the quick Down to the Dust and rowdy Generation Wild score big. With the rest, Generation Wild is easily another candidate for this Summer's iPod playlist, and something to keep handy for your next road trip. Strongly recommended.
