DETROIT - same (Hard Rock Usa '79)


This youthful hard rock album isn't great but has its charms. Among them are high energy songs (all but the ballads are fast), amusing use of talkbox and electronics, and spastic bass and lead guitar playing. Certainly there's more enthusiasm than talent here, but it's fun nonetheless. The snotty vocals are clearly inspired by another Motown hard rocker, Alice Cooper, but lack his sense of theater and irony. Eventually they become annoying, especially on the otherwise enjoyable ballads. Side one has five medium length songs, side two three long songs, including the two ballads, which respectively have nice reverbed lead guitar and crazy dual leads. Often this album is reported as having a lot of synthesizer, but actually it's only a small amount on two songs.
