Probably TOAD's best record,
This review is from: Gasoline (Audio CD)
Anyone who has read my review of Nickelback's "Dark Horse" album will be aware that I regard TOAD and Nickelback as being very similar.
The only real difference being that no-one has heard of TOAD, shame really because they are at least on a par with Nickelback, maybe even better.
"Gasoline" is a very strong batch of Hard Rock, from the opening rocker "Hating Hollywood" to the acoustic ballad of Santa Monica, TOAD cover all the usual rock traits very well.
It's quite a straight forward listen, nothing to really tackle the musical brain in you but its a record that rocks, plain and simple.
The real standout track for me however is the beautiful power ballad "Since You've Been Gone," a very moving and emotional track.
Perhaps best not to listen to this if you've just broken up with someone, it's very likely to make you cry.
Give "Gasoline" a listen, for just 45 minutes of your time, it'll be time well spent.
