Young Heart Attack - Mouthful of Love
For their first album YHA really have pulled out all the stops because this really is one hell of a rock'n'roll roller coaster of an album. YHA hail from Texas and when listening to their album you really do get the feel that effortless Texan swagger.
One of the things that makes YHA so unique is that they have both a male and female vocalist. Instead of one singing half the songs and the other the other half, they take turns within most of the songs. Almost as if they are competing all the way through the song to see who can make the best rock and roll screeches. The end result is barrages of ferocious all-out rock songs such as "Over and Over" and "Starlite" which are quite simply brilliant.
Although the singles such as Tommy shots and Mouthful of love give the impression YHA is just a full out rock as hard as you can band. They also make sure you know they can kick back and slow it right down through songs such as the superb Mary Jane. Hopefully YHA will be around for a long time to come as they are exactly the kick up the back side rock and roll so badly needs. They have certainly set the benchmark high for their next album to live up to, but with what seems to be such an effortless and cracking album I believe they will.
If you like The Datsuns, The Darkness or Jet's debut efforts you will love this.

I saw this lot supporting Motorhead last year and they clearly stood out from the others on the bill. They made you realise the difference between sincere, quality music & an excuse for it -The Wildhearts were next on the bill and were embarrassing in comparison.
The album is a breath of fresh air. Clearly the band have listened to AC/DC once or twice, but that's no bad thing and this stuff sits pretty comfortably with the best that the Angus et al have to offer. There are one or two tracks that are not as good as the others but when the album as a whole is so good then that's a minor point.
I've listened to rock n' roll of the harder variety for about 25 years and you know when a band is a cut above the average. This lot has stardom written all over them. If you could buy shares in bands I'd put my house on them.

This is old fashioned guitar oriented rock very much in the mould of the Black Crowes, AC/DC and the like
The lyrics are nothing to write home about (Girls/Rock n roll etc etc) but musically the songs are well crafted and the execution is pretty good without being showy.
But what really distinguishes Young Heart Attack from being run-of the mill rock-radio filler material is the excellent harmony/counter singing between the male and female lead singers.
With the current vogue for guitar rock, YHA may do pretty well, but in any event this album is worth a spin.
Something that is worth noting is that the CD clocks in at a meagre 34 minutes .

This band just get better and better. I'm not going to repeat what the other reviews have said about Young Heart Attack's musical and vocal abilities. I've been going to rock gigs for almost 30 years and after seeing Young Heart Attack live in London, I just had to buy the album when it came out. It was well worth it. This album conveys the incredible energy of their songs magnificently.
If you want a modern up to date encapsulation of the quintessential essence of rock - This is it! Seminal influences can be recognised and if you know your Rock Pantheon you will pick up the cheeky little musical references. However, they just serve to inseminate the ova of Young Heart Attack's own original creativity. It is developed and incarnated and Young Heart Attack's music springs like a torrent of freshly spawned piranha instantly devouring any apathy or lassitude your soul may harbour.
This band deserve to make it big.
See them live for the Real Deal!!

YHA are all out dirty rock music. Ten headbanging, ear smashing tracks to delight any hard rock fan. Comparisons with ACDC are inevitable as YHA hold nothing back in this riotous debut.
Their 2 singles Tommy Shots and Misty Row appear, as well as being supported by songs like To the Teeth and the brilliant Starlite. From the opening track Mouthful of Love to final track Misty Row, YHA are on all out attack.
If you like your rock music hard, dirty and relentless then you will love Mouthful of Love. YHA have announced their arrival on the hard rock scene and with some strong live reviews, are showing they have every intention of sticking around for a long time.

After touring with Motorhead and The Darkness they have to be thought as something special.
If you like The Datsuns with a bit of added AC/DC for good effect, stop, click and buy beacuse you will love it. I ve heard a some of the tracks off the album and they are all pretty excellent, no real "albumy" tracks all equally brilliant. The lead singer is brillant on the album, her looks just an added bonus, of course.
Expect great things.

I saw this band supporting the Darkness...
imagine the datsuns, ACDC, KISS...basically a proper old school metal band and youre somewhere there. Misty Rowe and Mouthful of love are both brilliant and this album is set to instal Young Heart Attack as next years Datsuns.
