The Dead Daisies are a band that never seems to receive the praise and respect that they deserve here in Australia. Well, perhaps their brand new album ‘Make Some Noise’ will be the album that does that because this is a record that is a pure flashback to the glory days of hard and dirty rock & roll.
With a line-up that consists of past and current members of bands such as Motley Crue, Guns ‘N’ Roses, Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake it is easy to see why this is the kind of album full of music that makes you want to pull out the denim jacket, grab your long hair and then just headbang. Yes ‘Make Some Noise’ takes all the best elements of the 1980s and 1990s hard rock and brings it all together in a truly phenomenal (and loud) way.
From the opening strumming of the opening track, ‘Long Way To Go’ it is very, very clear that this is a guitar driven album that really does show the skills of David Lowy and Doug Aldrich who whine and wail their way through an album that is going to have everybody out there wanting to air guitar as they take a listen. Tracks like ‘We All Fall Down’ and ‘Freedom’ will put any guitar lover in pure bliss.
One of the things that do stand out about this album is that producer Marti Frederiksen (Def Leppard, Aerosmith) has done a great job capturing the very raw sound that is normally only heard when a rock band plays live. He really has the best vocals from lead singer John Corabi who delivers in payloads whether he is delivering catchy rock tracks like the title track or ‘How Does it Feel’, a beefed-up cover of Credence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Fortunate Son’ (which is one of the best tracks on the album) or even taking the country route with the album’s second cover – ‘Join Together’ (originally recorded by The Who).
‘Make Some Noise’ in not a subtle album – it’s brash, brutal at times and loud, but more importantly it is evidence of a rock band at their very best. Fans of loud hard rock music must embrace this little gem.
