"The Unattractive revolution" is the second studio album by highly acclaimed Swedish sleaze metal band "Crashdiet", originally released in 2007. After the commercial success of their 2005 debut and the tragic death of their lead singer, the members of "Crashdiet" chose to move forward with the same name and record label (Universal music) to record their second album "The Unattractive Revolution".
To meet this end, established members-guitarist Martin Sweet, bassist Peter London and drummer Eric Young recruited Finnish lead singer Olli Herman Kosunen (who would later reach fame with his own band "Reckless Love") nicknamed here as Oliver Twisted. In comparison to their debut, "The unattractive revolution" is a considerably more melodic/harmonious-perhaps one could say mellow-effort. Having said that, the offering proved another step up the ladder of commercial success; also featuring songwriting collaborations with "Motley Crue" guitarist Mick Mars on several tracks.
Despite its title, "The unattractive revolution" is not quite as protestant an album as one would expect, instead it is mainly self-exploratory, extensively dealing with emotions and for that matter delivers a rather melancholic/sad essence. Naturally the album features up tempo party rockers like "In the raw" but includes an even larger amount of darker material including "Like a sin", "Falling Rain" and "Die another day". Overall "The unattractive revolution" came out considerably differentiated from its predecessor that effectively took the band onto the next level while indirectly setting the basis for the formation of "Reckless love".
