The best song for me is "Memorial" which features an epic riff for the chorus complete with clanging bells. "Coup D'Etat" is an instrumental that only lasts for 39 seconds but is still an excellent track made up entirely of a Michael Kelly Smith guitar solo. "Sri Lanka" is an interesting song ending with a 4 minutes plus instrumental section featuring Smith playing the mandolin.
Its a real shame that at time of writing Britny Fox have not released another studio album. Currently bassist Billy Childs is the only original member left in the band which is a pity as the line up on Bite Down Hard and Springhead Motorshark is for me the best Britny Fox line up. Tommy Paris's vocals are much more suited to Britny Fox than his predecessor and Michael Kelly Smith and Jonny Dee were both core members of the band, Smith in particular for his excellent songwriting.
In conclusion Springhead Motorshark is an excellent album and one that is well worth getting your hands on.

Man. Well, it's been a while for the boys to release a new studio record, but here we are. Before I step any further into this review, let it be known that if the sole reason you enjoyed Britny Fox's music in the past was because of Dizzy Dean Davidson, avoid this cd. Paris has been with the band as singer and rhythm guitarist since 1990/1991. Get over it. 'Bite Down Hard' was Fox's third record and their first with new vocalist Tommy Paris.
Gone with Britny Fox's first new album in twelve years are the 80's production sounds. This is not a heavily reverberated album (i.e. 'Boys In Heat' or Def Leppard's 'Hysteria'). While I love the sounds of past Fox cds, I must say that I appreciate how 'Springhead Motorshark' was executed by the boys. Unlike Dokken's 'Shadowlife', BF hasn't sold out to "the times" They are not desperately trying to fit into the new music scene like half of the OTHER 80's rock bands. So what are we left with? A good hard rock effort that is perhaps a bit too spotty in some areas. Out of the 11 tracks featured on 'Springhead Motorshark', I'd have to say that seven of them are very good leaving the rest a little "iffy". For example, "Sri Lanka" is one of the more undesirable tracks on the album. It could have used a lot more bite than it did (pardon the pun). A hard rock song should be a hard rock song. The added percussion on this track is unnecessary and bland. Some real heavy metal drumming on Dee's behalf would have been appreciated.
The spotlights: "Coup D'etat", the guitar solo which leads directly into the fantastic hard rocking "Far Enough". This tune blends melody perfectly with rock. "Pain" is a good lead-off number that harks back closest to the 'Bite Down Hard' days of all the tracks on 'Springhead Motorshark'. And "L.A.". Ah, L.A. Hmmmmm... What a beautiful song. Parises' keyboard playing and soaring vocals on this one really send it flying. Dee's drumming is tasteful and Michael Kelly Smith's soulful guitar playing is always a plus. That said, "Far Enough" and "L.A." alone are worth the purchase of the cd.
This cd is for: Fans of good, unadulterated, hard rock with no compromises. For people who appreciate talent. For those who enjoyed 'Bite Down Hard' in '91. For fans who loved the 80's music but can still appreciate different sounds of rock bands that they were once familiar with.
In conclusion: Dizzy Dean, we all love ya and we miss you. But Britny Fox is doing fine these days. The Philly boys have reunited once again and have treated us to a satisfying piece of rock 'n' roll history. I can't wait to hear more from BF in the near future.
