The Dead Daisies
Release Date: Out Now
I received The Dead Daisies’ first album from a magazine for free about a few years ago, and it very surprising at how incredible it was. It’s good old high-energy rock that gets a thumbs up from me. John Corabi and Brian Tichy are the newcomers to the band, joining David Lowy, Richard Fortus, Marco Mendoza and Dizzy Reed. These guys have been members of bands like Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses to name a few. So, will Revolucion live up to the exciting rock n roll that the first album brought to us? Let’s see…
Mexico was originally released as a single, but it makes a brilliant intro to Revolucion that reeks of The Who, that’s simple and catchy and keeps that addictive vibe the previous album had. The riffs get slicker with the solos and keys providing the energetic vibe. Evil and the title track Revolucion both crack their knuckles and let rip with the addictive style that has similar elements to Lynard Skynard. This is strong in Make The Best Of It, with a strangely addictive vibe to it with the soothing piano intro until the cheerful chorus.
There are ballads on this album, which is typical from any hard rock band, but Something I Said is a decent listen. Things do get smacked into fifth gear with funk as Get Up, Get Ready is a sexy song that spins the whole riff heavy sound aside and letting the Hammond organ have a go at a solo. Devil Out Of Time has a whole Lenny Kravitz nod to it, but it gets exciting towards the solo after Corabi yells, “piss off”! Revolucion has two bonus tracks, which are worth a listen.
Revolucion is just as brilliant as their first album. The Dead Daisies have a sound that is just wonderful to listen to, it’s something that can cheer you up after going through a very shit day. Corabi’s vocals sound better than ever, and the music is on a constant sugar rush that will make you want to write all over the walls with crayon, eat the chocolate spread when you’re not supposed to and stay awake after your bed time.
Album number two is a triumph.
