Let´s take a trip to the 80´s !
This album is one of the most interesting I´ve heard in a long time. It takes you back to the vibrant club scene of early 80´s, when it was full of young and hungry bands with the dream of becoming big Rockstars.
My first thought was that this is a mixture of early Hanoi Rocks, Rock City Angels, Dogs D´amour and Tattooed Love Boys. The attitude is straight in your face. The sound is dirty and rough. Still it´s rather catchy. There is a good blend of up tempo and mid tempo songs on the album. The singer has a rather cool cigarette/whiskey raspy voice that fits right in with the music and sound. There are some really good songs on this album, like the title track “Rock n Roll Brotherhood”, “Destination LA”, “Occasional Lover” and “Love After Death”.
The biggest downside to the album is the couple of songs that stand out in that way that they don´t really fall in the same genre as the rest of the album.
Some might like that some songs stand out in that way. But I´m not one of them when there is so much talent in the songwriting on the other tracks, that it should be enough to write a complete album in the same style.
And to sum things up, this is sure an album to check out. It gives you the feeling of a garage band with the quality to make it big.
As this being a debut album it gives rather big hopes for something really great if there will be a second album.
