Brilliant 31 Aug. 2005
By Steven Swan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was a band that was a welcome relief from the over abundance of the hair bands of hard rock that had made the scene a bit stale. Guns N'Roses had taken over and had begun to stir it up a bit, but were bent on self destruction and all those other bands were clamering to change their sound to make it sound "modern"; a band like Electric Boys comes out and makes a funky, mellow, and even heavy album that just fills in a gap. It's sorta a mix of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and some other bands like Kings X, Saigon Kick, and even maybe Extreme to name a few that kinda snuck in to fill in time before the Grunge movement took over. Sadly this sound faded all too quickly. This fits more into an alternative rock format that maybe a band like Jane's Addiction might have been kings of.
From the opening of "Psychedelic Eyes", and the anthemic stripper theme "Lips 'N Hips" which sounds kinda cheesy by todays standards I admit. But later on it get's funky, and it get's so heavy and melodic you can't resist. It just sounds like they are having a good time making the record. "The Change" just lifts you up, a great song if you are indeed heading for a change in your life perhaps. So many great rock songs on here. Groovus Maximus is a pretty good CD also, and I'm curious to hear the newest "Freewheelin'" , but for now this will do for me.

Not on itunes! 8 Dec. 2007
By K. Walsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been looking all over for this CD. I truly love "All Lips 'N' Hips" and it gets me in the mood when I'm getting ready to go bar hopping! My husband loves to watch me dance to this song with all my girlfriends..... I went to itunes to download the CD but it ISN'T there! I couldn't believe it - I thought itunes had just about everything. Oh well, I'm truly loving this entire CD... I truly recommend getting this CD for your collection.... ENJOY! I KNOW WE WILL!

Almost Aerosmith 4 May 2006
By Henrik Harbin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album sounds like what Aerosmith might have become if they'd moved to Scandinavia instead of doing Permanent Vacation and Pump.

Conny Bloom isn't quite the wild and crazy guy that Steve Tyler was and is, but this was a promising start. One more album (Groovus Maximus) came out in the states, but Nirvana sabotaged anything that might have come forward from here.

Too bad-- this band was COOL.

Funk Me! 17 Sept. 2009
By JAMES MCCORMICK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
3 Stars = Good

In 1989, Sweden's, the Electric Boys, released "Funk O Metal Carpet Ride," another entry into the funk/metal sweepstakes that rose up in the very late 80's to early 90's. Much like another band of that time, Extreme, the Electric Boys performed a competent, & sometimes very inspired version of funk/metal built on the shoulders of 70's seminal acts in this sub genre like Pat Travers & Mahogany Rush. Though no where near as adapt or groundbreaking as those bands, the Electric Boys were still a band that was worth a listen & took the right cues from the right bands to funk it up right.

"Funk O Metal Carpet Ride," had its share of exciting musical passages & time changes, funky rhythms, & tasty guitar. Their singer was pretty good to, & there was a pinch of Beatlesque sound to some of the harmonies & music on this album. The center piece song for me was "Captain of My Soul," a rip roaring Pat Travers like song if there ever was one on this album. Catchy, hook & riff driven funk/metal of the kind I enjoy very much. It's just too bad that the rest of the album was not up to that standard, not that it was bad, it wasn't, but "Captain of My Soul" just ruled! The rest....well they more or less served "Funk O Metal Carpet Ride," to a good extent, being competent, if not always truly inspiring. Even so, if you have a funk/metal Jones like me, you could do a hell of a lot worse than "Funk O Metal Ride!"

After "Funk O Metal Carpet Ride," the Electric Boys put out "Groovus Maximus," which tried to live up to it's name, but just did get the funk/metal out like the first & the band started to dissolve. Then after their third "Freewheelin', disappeared all together, never to be heard of again....
