‘Cut To The Chase’ gives the impression that the band are very comfortable with the material they play, not overstretching themselves but able to create their niche effortlessly and with a refreshing approach to their music.
Favourites such as ‘Baby Loves You’, ‘Fly High Michelle’ and ‘New Thing’ were laid at our feet with superb style and picked up with fervour from the rockers at the Underworld to do with what they wished, which is my case was dancing like a blissful loony!
All in all, what’s not to like. The world is too serious by a long [cum] shot. Steel Panther dismiss everything and focus on having a good time without a care. And why the hell not?
I’m looking for Collateral to deliver a ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ or ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’ for the 21st century.
Pekka has to duck and weave like the best of boxers at times to avoid Jason’s bass neck as it whirls around mid air
This sounds so good that if it doesn’t become an example of a modern metal masterpiece then I shall start listening to Justin Beiber
‘The Real Deal’ really smacks of a southern blues version of old time Whitesnake …..simply glorious and probably my favourite from the whole album.
First impressions of this album are pretty good being previously unfamiliar with both ‘Ween’ and the ‘Dean Ween Group’.
This is an album I have enjoyed immensely and will continue listening to. Lee Aaron has a voice which it seems is improving with age.
