I like this, I like this a lot. Easy Romance is not the first album for Suckerstarz, they previously had an album released in Japan and a split album with Sonicdollz.We're talking about a rock n'roll trio who know their stuff. You can expect simple but groovy rock n'roll riffs, fast palm-muted guitars and 10 songs mostly about women.
Is it all that good? Well actually it isn't very original. There are tons of bands like this, but Suckerstarz just does it so well. Their music just sticks with you.
I really like the vocals of singer Blondie, he's really got a nice intonation and color in his voice. Sometimes his pronunciation is really funny, English is clearly not his native language, but he gets away with it.
Actually, I find it to add something to the music. Listen to the chorus of "Kill Her One Day" and you'll know what i mean.
Easy Romance is alltogether a very consistent album. I always listen to it from start to end without skipping any songs, I can't find a track that brings the album down.
Also, the production is done very well, altho Suckerstarz' songs are very guitar-orientated, the rythm section ("Stuffy" on bass and "Pamyz" on drums) drives the songs ahead through the album. Not very complicated but it works nicely.
Actually there isn't much that has to be said about Easy Romance, it kind of speaks for itself.
Do you like straight-forward up-tempo rock n'roll with clean but strong vocals? Do you hate albums that last longer than 30 minutes? Well then, just buy this, you will have a blast.
For myself: if I would have a car this album would be in it for quite some time. As a matter of fact I'll buy a car just so that I could play this record in it.
