Plenty Strong And Plenty Wrong
|Ragnar of Ravensfjord|
Big, raucous hard rock sound. Blends 70’s stadium boogie ‘ala Nazereth & Montrose, 80’s area rock like The Cult & Hanoi Rocks, 90’s Sub Pop and current era stoner rock like Clutch. Oddly enough it’s a concept album about the Ma Barker gang. Pretty fun stuff that makes it feel/sound like long lost band from the 80's.
(((1))) Swampy, burnin’ , boogie
((2)) Swaggery but sorta almost likable, crotch-rock with a catchy chorus. A little TOO contrived though.
((((3)))) Basic, big dumb loud rawk but…hell, they’re trying hard and it’s pretty much workin’ maaan!
((4)) Soundgarden/Alice in Chains on shoots up Florida meth? Yeesh! Some ok riffs but the rest feels like “shitty opening act”
((5)) Total southern fried twang, ramble merged with polished faux-grunge rock – so much so it screams “KSJO: 1993”.
((6)) More of the same as last song except a bit faster and a closer to the late 80’s.
(((7))) Pretty slick but also slithering around in the a enough dirt to keep it rockin’ & changed up that it doesn’t stay in sucksville.
((((8)))) “Nazereth gone down South”, big ass loud, super-rockin’ to add to your cheap beer, whiskey and pool balls a’ clangin’ together.
((9)) A little too redundant on the formulatic 80’s hard rock.
((((10)))) An actually rather good “radio-friendly” southern rock ballad. Plenty o’ twang & strum & well done vocals.
(((((11))))) Really pretty country-slide/instrumental. Has almost “indie rock” feel to it. Out of place but very nice!
