Now when we discuss the revival of the European scene Sleaze Glam, it is fashionable to cite (and all other sauces) group CRASH DIET. For this promising combo, which we had already made clear it would take with him after the demo released in 2003, just give us a 1st album ma-gis-tral! Indeed, this "Rest in Sleaze" will melt lovers Sleaze Glam Hard tendency U.S. speed of light as this album is full of excellent songs.
I think I can safely say that in the genre, it has rarely done so well this year 2005 and that this album may well leave a deep imprint in the mind and heart of those who love this genre of Hard Rock. The sound of this album is huge and thus multiplies the power of songs that, at base, are already highly efficient. The "Rest in Sleaze" wickedly flirts with zero fault and we must look to find something negative to say about this little bomb that was waiting to explode and knock as many people as possible.
If the single "Breaking the Chains" and its chorus is especially effective unifying, it remains that this title is one of the most soft in this album. Believe me, pieces such as "Riot in Everyone" or "Straight Outta Hell" have enormous potential to make you headbanguer. We already imagining what it must to live ....
But the group is also able to lay Hits a little more poppy but equally compelling. And in this category, "It 'sa miracle" seems to win votes. You have understood, if you need one album from Sleaze Glam Hard for U.S. to end the year 2005, it is that you need it and to miss such a bomb would be a mistake énooooooooooorme.
We understand now why CRASH DIET start to seriously talk about him in his native Sweden and why this group has managed to turn the spotlight on him in his home country. For if the group displays look very eye-catching and very typical Hard Rock 80ies (long hair peroxide, destroy Glam Punk look ....), It is with his music he makes his credibility and that s 'prepares to set out to conquer a world that is waiting patiently for that group to seize power by offering quality albums.
One can already some disgruntled people who will claim that the music CRASH DIET is retrograde and it remained locked in the years 80/début 90 and as such the group does not deserve it gives more importance than that. But they are wrong because if CRASH DIET does not revolutionize the world of Hard Rock, he handed up to date style that still has many fans and gradually returns to the front of the stage. And with an album of that caliber, no doubt the group will be welcomed with open arms. A board friends: even if this album is hard to find for us, given what it takes to get their hands on it. It's almost a necessity!

“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think.
Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there
was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than
when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.”
