Crazy Town

Reviewed by BravoMarco

LA based musician, songwriter & producer. This is a sax & synth driven release. Lots of 70’s/80’s electro pop - rock influences. At times this sounds like a soundtrack of a film you can’t remember the name of. Old-fashioned rock on some tracks then soft electro beats on others. The sax is quality, whenever used. Really like 5, No FCC’s

1) You Don’t Have To Try (To Hurt Me) (4.23) The sax drives this on. First ninety seconds is great & then it goes a bit wobbly.
2) Crazy Town (4.50) Speech rolls over busy synths - the sax gets going breaking the vocals up.
3) If Love Is All I Need (3.35) Some sractchin’ going on in the background with a slow beat – Soulful & mellow.
4) Look So Good (4.38) Mid paced rocking. Flashback to the late 70’s – Denim jackets cut offs worn over leathers.
5) Melancholy (4.36) Dire Straits sound. Soft rock instrumental that hits the right spot.
6) Get This Right (4.50) Soulful mid tempo track, lots of vocal effects – Added female vox. Catchy chorus. Bit busy though.
7) Liar (4.20) Big beat with sax & song title repeated with echo. Loving it until the other sounds/vocals come in. Might be good for some on KZSU though.
8) Blacked Out And Blue (3.29) Ode to drinking, rambling bluesy style track.
9) Walk With A Zombie (3.04) Effected vocals alongside the club rock & then it goes more electro. This is probably a hit when played live.
10) Gone In The Morning (3.42) Another rockin’ bluesy number. More rousing than the others. Mid paced. Sassy sax from halfway on.
11) Provocateur (4.30) Experimental in the Ultravox model. Not quite an instrumental “Vienna” but along those lines.
12) Love Goes On (4.53) Standard mellow electro ballad.
13) Caged (3.53) Easy going instrumental beat mixed in with laughter & applause.
14) Love Has New Meaning (6.19) Glockenspiel (I think) opening with relaxed vocals – Smooth sax floats you away. Another busy track – but pretty good.
