ALBUM POUNDING THE PAVEMENT
OUT 2018 (Jan 19th)
OUR RATING 88/100
LET'S START TO END: GROWIN'OLDER..GETTIN'BETTER!!
It's a pleasure for all fans seein' the band playin', composing and writin' at its best!
And It's right, because they deserve the current position!
And POUNDING THE PAVEMENT is the subsequent outturn!
After difficult years It's right seein' them produced at top level, with a"big" label and finally with the right man on bass, Christ, brilliant bass player and the missing piece of a smart puzzle!
No fillers, only ANVIL of a better time!
This album starts with BITCH IN THE BOX (READ LYRICS..never obvious!), a real kick in the teeth..powerful, it gets inside in your veins!!
After EGO, the well-known first single, DOING WHAT I WANT is another thunderous tune and SMASH YOUR FACE is a real hymn to real music, to real rock'n'roll full of heart of energy!!!
The title track is ai instrumental, to remind us that Lips, Robb Reiner and Christ are at first three top players, both in studio and live!
ROCK THAT SHIT is another top ROCK'N'ROLL, so classic, while LET IT GO never misses brightness!
I love NANOOK OF THE NORTH..as eskimo hunter ANVIL never gave up faced with difficulties!
BLACK SMOKE is fastest, while WORLD OF TOMORROW, with Sabbath's drops, looks forward, towards a future, finally, full of love and peace.
The end is for WARMING UP..I'd see well played live! And here ROBB REINER is totally amazing!
As Bonustrack is available DON'T TELL ME, that isn't of the lover class!
ANVIL ARE BACK..AT THEIR BEST!!!
