This review is from: The Savage Playground (Audio CD)
Yet another band from Sweden aiming for sleaze dominance. Having seen the video for Cocaine Cowboys, I pre-ordered this and two of the back cataloguue.

The album doesn't disappoint, full of catchy hooks, big choruses and strong melodies.

Can't wait for the tour in April with Jetblack now.

Harry Hess displayed his songwriting capabilities in Harem Scarem, so it came as no surprise when this album came highly recommended in melodic magazines.

The harmonies are of the quality of the Beach Boys, although with the guitar laden hooks and keyboards of the biggest bands of this genre.

All in all, this will appear in my top 10 of the year.

This came highly recommended in Fireworks magazine with a track on their cd and as I knew of the musicians, it was a no-brainer.

Two words, BUY IT. It's packed full of massive riffs, hooks and harmonies, just the way the Scandanavians do things now.

It's little wonder that this region is now dominating melodic rock. I am soon compiling my top 10 cd's of the year for a rock Facebook page, no surprise, this will be No1.

This was obviously a band that passed me by in the 80's, fortunately Fireworks magazine had a back page ad containing this cd. I went on to the MP3 section of Amazon to check this out and wow, I was blown away.

Anyone, who was a fan of hair rock will love this, big riffs, excellent vocals and harmonies abound.

So, if you miss bands like White Lion,Firehouse and others of this genre, this is for you.

Highly recommended.

Another Amazon recommendation and it's a classic. Well sung vocals and some great guitar playing, laden with catchy melodies and choruses.

I am now hoping these guys could maybe get over with W.O.A. and W.E.T. at some time, what a tour that would be. Although more tours are announced for this type of band, it seems down to Firefest to bring them over.

I will now be searching this and similar bands back catalogues for more gems.

The one trhing I like is when you look at an album on Amazon and get recommendations. This popped up and when I went and listened to the samples I knew I would be playing it for a while.

Sure, there are comparrisons to W.E.T. but they compliment each other on different levels. At the moment, it seems Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia are leading the way in melodic rock, the rest now have to catch up.

If, like me you are still a follower of 80's rock and in more recent years MTM, Z, and Frontiers Records, then this is right up your street.

Firstly, not having the first BCC cd yet didn't stop me getting this, having heard the single on Planet Rock. Having seen Bonamassa twice and Hughes once really wet my appetite for this album.

From start to finish this is packed with quality playing and vocals, as powerful as an elephants fart. If you are into the classic rock of the 70's, this is a must have album and one that won't disappoint.
