BAND THE DEAD DAISIES
ALBUM BURN IT DOWN
OUT 2018 (April 6th)
LABEL SPITFIRE MUSIC/SPV
OUR RATING 85/100
After 6 year, four studio full-length and a live album, someone insists on calling them project or superband..they are only an amazing band with top musicians who never stop to surprise us!
Out BRIAN TICHY, so busy in several projects, now it's time for DEEN CASTRONOVO to be involved.
We really like his contribution, finally free to disclose his hard side!
HARD..Yeah..because this album is only HARD ROCK, soaked with heart, soul and blues to the skin, surely harder than previous and pleasant MAKE SOME NOISE.
You can understand what I'm sayin' from RESURRECTED, a scathing hard rock tune.
RISE UP starts "acid", maybe more "modern" but it's able to develop itself in somethin'catchy and more usable.
The title track is more bluesy, with bass of Marco Mendoza that shore up the sound.
A thoughtful intro is reserved for JUDGEMENT DAY, before returning to a wild riffing..this is the (really appreciated) trademark of this platter!
WHAT GOES AROUND is recognised by its acid riff, so 70's, enhanced by "sly" John Corabi (maybe always undervalued from "music business"...).
B*TCH is full of groove and rhythm and solo of Doug Aldrich is only..awesome, just as all solo parts of this platter.
SET ME FREE is a shot surely more melodic but full of heart and soul, perfect for a live sing-a-long!
DEAD AND GONE is full of vibe while CAN'T TAKE IT YOU is powerful but less direct but...works great!
LEAVE ME ALONE is the right end and remind us somethin' from 70's Aerosmith, the music that even now warms our hearts!
THE BEST TDD ALBUM? WE SAY YES!!
