Finally! Innocent Rosie will release their first album “Bad Habit Romance on February 18th 2009. I dunno about you, but I’ve been waiting for this album for quite some time, and I tell you all it’s been worth the wait. Innocent Rosie is everything Guns N’ Roses can never be again, raw, energetic and a kick ass rock n’ roll band.

 

The album is packed with big riffs and even bigger arena worthy choruses, ready to be chant along with by insane crowds from all over the world.

I love the wah-pedal guitar action in the intro  of “Knock Me Out”, as well as the vocals on this song. “Animal” is made to play as loud as possible, once this song grabs you there’s no letting go. The guitars are fast n’ heavy and the drums are ready to bash your guts to jelly. “Sextalkin'” starts of with a high pitched scream off the guitar and then transforms into a Mötley “Dr. Feelgood” era-riff. I like the rock n’ roll piano on this song.
“Let A Memory Die” begins like a slow groofy blues tune, but then slowly but surely morphes into a rock n roll gutpounder.

Cherry Lips – Cherry Lips
01. Dead or Alive? (Are You)
02. Haunted
03. Stop Messin’ Around
04. Right Now
05. Mean Hot And Nasty
06. On My Own
07. Back For More
08. Shadow
09. The Race is On
10. Heartbreaker
11. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
12. Narcissus

Guys who say girls can’t rock hard should listen to this record and choke on the guitar violence on the album. Cherry Lips is an all-girls band from Italy formed in 2004, and on 27 March this year the world can expect their first album “Cherry Lips” to be released on Swedmetal Records.

 Though this album is more poppy that the music I usually listen to it’s worth more than one spin on my radio. I especially love the music section on this album, it sounds real tight girls!

My personal highlights on this album are “Stop Messin’ Around”, I love the laidback Rolling Stones kinda guitar slide intro, and the vocals sound a bit more aggressive on this one. The song is about something everyone can relate to, people hating the music your playing and wanting you to turn it off. “Mean Hot And Nasty” starts with a mean hot and nasty riff and once again a more aggressive voice than the first couple of songs. Cherry Lips also recorded a way better version of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” I have to say this is the first time I’m not annoyed by this song.

Pretty Wild – All The Way (E.P.)
01. All The Way
02. Time
03. Let The Good Times Roll
04. Shockin’ Teen
05. Dangerous
06. Take It Off
07. Let The Good Times Roll (-86 Mix)
08. Dangerous (live in L.A.)

It’s All The Way back to the 80’s Sunset Strip with this record. Loud but melodic buitar riffs and high pitched vocal screams dominate this album. Pretty wild has played the Roxy and Whisky a Go Go in L.A. And I must say, if they’ve been there two decades earlier they would’ve made it bigger than now.

Like the band said themselves, When you turn on a Pretty Wild song you wanna grab a beer and get the party going, this E.P. is perfect party music. Though “All The Way” isn’t just a party disc, I believe their sound is big enough to fill arenas and stadiums.

The party has begun, and you’re invited; 18 February 2009 “All The Way” will hit the stores. Their debut album will be released later this year.
