It´s always fun when you can sit down and listen to an album and having absolutely no idea what to expect. It´s like starting with a clean canvas and not knowing what it will end up like.
That was the case when I pushed play the first time on this album. And to be totally honest I was very pleasantly surprised with what I heard.
What struck me the most with this music was that it was fun. Genuine fun and probably done with a smile on the band members faces. This is a fantastic blend of what I sometimes can feel that the music today can lack. Such as the story telling of Alice Cooper, the irony of The Darkness and the attitude of 80´s extreme Sigue Sigue Sputnik.
I later found out that the image of Crosson probably is inspired of the latter band. Crosson has taken the post apocalyptic image to their hearts and taken it all the way to the top.
And the music? Well the core is very traditional Hard Rock with the roots in the 70´s. Still you can feel the vibe of Punk attitude flowing thou the music, especially in the singer voice.
This is genuine and pure. Some might say that it is simple and populistic. I would rather say that it is clever and done with a true passion for the music that they do. The songs got great hooks and choruses that really catches your attention. I even would go as far as saying that this is brilliant.
These guys play their hearts out and brings us some true gems. “All About The Music” is an excellent song inspired by the late great David Bowie. “Taxman” brings you typical ironic Punk Rock song in the likes of Sex Pistols. “ Horizontal Bop” makes you wanna stand up and jump with your fist pumping in the air. “Spreading The Rock N Roll Disease” pretty much sums up all what this band is about, catchy music and the love for Rock n Roll.
I´m not saying that everybody will love this album, but I truly think that you will have a good time while checking this band out.
