Altruism be damned - this is fine music.,
This review is from: Emergency Haiti 2010 (MP3 Download)
What these youngsters have produced has to be heard to be believed! Yes, buy it "It's for charity, Mate!" but you'll be rewarded for your altruistic actions by becoming the owner of probably the most listenable charity single produced.
From the start, the pounding rhythm guitars, drums and bass set the tone. Lemmy's cracked vocal enhancing the verses appearing behind the female lead, just giving it that rocky gritty edge. The full on chorus augmented by crashing power chords and gut-wrenching bassline and thunderous drumming (complete with Rudy Sarzo's tone adding an almost harmonic quality to the young bass player's fingering. If that wasn't enough, there is a more than adequate guitar solo two thirds of the way in just to add that final polish to the whole thing.
Have they done justice to Girlschool's original? - Yes!
Have they devoped something of their own quality within it? - Yes!
Finally, does it rock? - OH, YES!
Buy it, you won't be disapponted .... and you'll be raising funds for a great cause.
