Straight from America’s heartland comes SOULICIT, a Kansas hard rock band in the vein of Nickleback.
If partying like a rockstar had a soundtrack, I’d say SOULICIT is an awfully good candidate to supply the tunes and in my book they are the perfect example of the state of rock and roll today.
First track “HellYeah” is the big single for these guys and is getting some national airplay.The guys also shot a promotional video for the song that features girls straight out of the trailer park.
Up next is “Beauty Queen” which harkens back to what rock and roll is all about.
“Parking Lot Rockstar” is the album's title track, and if there are any copyright lawyers employed by Nickleback’s label, they’re sharpening their pencils as we speak as it sounds uncannily like The Canadian's “Rockstar.” A very commercial track complete with catchy guitar riff.
“Complicated” starts off with a nice clean riff played on downtuned guitars, then kicks on the distortion only to go back to the clean guitar sound on the verses. The song has good dynamics and it’s really a great mood-setting song.
With "You Are the Song” the album takes a dip for me as far as lyrical quality is concerned. Somewhat cliched lines like, “..I can’t get out of my head…take me away from what’s cold and dead.” It doesn’t exactly make for a warm and fuzzy love song.
“Blow Me Away” hits hard right from the start with a wicked downtuned riff. There’s a great solo on this one as well, very melodic.
“Too Cold To Pray” is an interesting track. I was struck by the interesting minor riff. I’m not a huge fan of downtuned guitars but despite the downtuning, the song still has an articulate sound.
“Getting High“ is equipped with a big chorus and great harmonies that make it a very radio friendly track. It’s a tragic love story about a girl ruining her life by getting high. The guitar is almost 80's in its sound during the solo.
The boys of SOULICIT blend a modern guitar sound with lyrics that would make Tommy Lee blush, if such a thing is possible.
These guys are defenitelly worth checking out !!!
