5.0 out of 5 stars Great 28 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got this album on the strength of the song 'secret agents of lust',and I would be happy to have paid just for that song alone.It's a great album full of good fun pop/rock,almost fitting the old power pop term.Think of a Cheap Trick/Hanoi Rocks cross.Great melodies and songs.

I love this LP now. It took several plays and now I can't think of a weak number on the whole CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glam metal meets glam rock 19 April 2012
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Here's another great (mostly) Swedish hard rock band that fans of the whole Swedish sleaze rock revolution are bound to enjoy. Casablanca features former Alice Cooper/Electric Angels guitarist Ryan Roxie as well as members of bands like Sahara Hotnights and Melody Club).

Apocalyptic Youth is the band's debut, and it's about as fun as rock n' roll gets. In terms of style, they take the `80s hard rock (call it "hair metal" if you must) sound and give it a hefty dose of `70s glam rock and of course that Swedish sense of melody. It's less Motley Crue/L.A. Guns and more T-Rex and Mott the Hoople. The album has lots of melody, lots of swagger, and a very soulful tone. You can hear traces of Roxie's previous bands (especially the underrated Electric Angels) as well as new bands like Diamond Dogs and American Heartbreak.

Casablanca isn't the same kind of party rock band Crashdiet and Hardcore Superstar are, but they're definitely a band that will appeal to fans of that kind of music. Apocalyptic Youth is just a really solid, really fun album that gets to the heart of what rock n' roll is all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous Rock ' Roll Ride 19 Mar 2014
By T. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
I have owned Apocalyptic Youth for about four months and I have listened to the album all the way through at least a dozen times. This record is a no frills straight ahead rock effort. The guitar work is catchy, memorable and laced with talent...reminding me of Keith Richards in the way the lead works effortlessly over the song and enhance the feel. Check out Deliberately Wasted and the title track out...these two songs alone are worth the price of admission.

Every song is mid tempo rock that you can tell, would sound incredible live. The lead vocalist is not a classic singer in the American Idol sense, but man does it work in a big way. The Juggler is a great tune to check out what I mean...it is a moody, low slug chugger.

A must buy for anyone who is sick of over produced, middle of the road, studio crap.

Cheers to Casablanca...please release another album soon.
4.0 out of 5 stars New Rock 'n Glam Savers 5 Oct 2012

Hi, This is a great new band from sweden featuring american veteran guitarist Rian Roxie (Alice Cooper, Slash Snakepit, Electric Angels etc,,,)if you like bands in the line of; Guns and Roses, L.A Guns, Kiss, N.Y Dolls, Girl, Tigers of Pan Tang, Dead Boys, T-Rex, Bullet Boys, Motley Crue, Faster Pussycat, Dogs D'Amour, Hanoi Rocks, Backyard Babies, Toilet Boys and/or even Georgia Satellites, The Cult etc,,, then you should'nt just pass by this cd that could so well SATISFY YOUR SLEAZE-GLAM-70'S-ARENA-ROCK-HUNGER.

In my humble opinion what is so peculiar about CASABLANCA is their fresh and modern and yet at the same time classic sound. I mean this album could have apperead in the middle of the 80's just beetwen,,, White Lion's "Pride" and Little Caesar's debut, and Zodiac Mindwarp's "Tattoed beat messiah" or also very well in the 90's between,,, Mother Love Bone's debut and,,, any fine band that provided a great "wall of sound" rock mood from their back ground, and a straight daring-provocating kind of "fist in your face atitude" in the front.

CASABLANCA are Fun and Great songs, full of passion, and faboulously well performed.

Come on give then a chance and just buy it! Lord knows they need our dollars and euros in these days of records companies all wrecking around. But they will make your rock hears and glam souls a big favour specialy if your tastes match the above mentioned bands. Enjoy it bro's & sister's!!!

Another amazing band from Ryan Roxie! It's a really great rock record from a very talented group of musicians. Every song rocks, but I love "Downtown" and "The Juggler" the best. Would love to see this band live, as well as Ryan's other band Roxie 77. Would've loved to see him live when he was in Electric Angels in the late 80s/early 90s, and I also missed him with Alice Cooper. Come back to NYC, Ryan! And bring all your bands with you!
