05/10/11 is the date. The date of Reckless Love’s newest release with the sleazy title “Animal Attraction”. It has been a long time ago I wrote the review for their self titled album. Must be the spring of 2010 I guess...Well, I thought; why don’t I put this semi-classic review right here on Sleazenation to turn up the heat before the Finnish Glamsters take over the AOR scene for the second time? It’s a short one, so what? Why should I write two pages full about an already epic album? So here we go!
Nowadays, many bands tap into an old music formula and rebuild it to something fresh. Reckless Love brings you four tough but endearing guys who are not shy to bring back cool ‘80’s Metal clichés. Reckless Love really makes the hearts of many teenage girls run faster then ever before. However, I’m not a teenage girl but Reckless Love’s self-entitled album keeps me rockin’ till I drop!
An awesome Metal record but also very fun and pleasant to listen too. It’s an album your parents could appreciate…or at least should. Promoting their debut album, Reckless Love has put out four music videos, of which "Badass" is my very favorite. Besides this kickass song, “Beautiful Bomb” and “Romance” is flooded with love, heartbreak lyrics and tender sweetness.
“One More Time” is a bit rough on the edges and has a nice fast pace. These only are four of the 11 badass songs which makes the album a must sing-along in front of your mirror. This glittery record is produced very smooth. If you ask me, It’s a more mainstream sound then other ‘80’s Sleaze bands like Crash Diet and Vains of Jenna. Still, musically it’s top notch and you’ll notice that playing with each other is nothing new to them.
It’s your musical taste which make you decide to purchase this album or not. Forget the sweaty men wrapped in black outfits. Courtesy of Reckless Love and other new Glam bands, Fashionrock makes it’s re-entry with albums like this one. Screaming girls and pretty boys. A perfect way to continue the summer in your heart like you where in Cali!
If you don’t own a copy yet, be sure to look for the “Cool Edition” as can be seen above. This re-release includes improved artwork and some bonus tracks, previously only available on singles and the Japanese edition!
