‘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.
I’m well aware that this is a side project, and then as much as I’ll talk myself to death about these projects, we all know it can’t possibly compete with Def Leppard or anything like that. So, it has to be standalone to be taken for what it’s worth, which is, I like to think a great record that will stand up by being played on people’s stereos at home, you know what I mean?
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?
Yngwie does not just play the song note for note (we have all heard it before) he adds his trademark licks and brings the song up to date with his own indomitable sound.
I’m looking for Collateral to deliver a ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ or ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’ for the 21st century.
The ultimate goal which I feel I have accomplished is that people don’t miss a vocalist when they see my band play
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
First impressions of this album are pretty good being previously unfamiliar with both ‘Ween’ and the ‘Dean Ween Group’.
