Crash Kelly - Electric Satisfaction Review

by Johnny Hardcore

.
I try to listen to every album I am given for review with virgin ears if you will. I try to allow the artist's music to be fresh in my head to give it the most objective, non-biased review I can. I did that in this case with Crash Kelly's release of Electric Satisfaction. I even listened to the album 5 times in my car alone while on our lovely 405 freeway.

I can't find one bright spot on this album. Every song reminds me of a dead rocker. Sorry but it does. Are these T-Rex wanna be's or what. At times they even seem to try and mix a classic 70's sound with a more modern power pop sound. And it just does not work. For example the first song which is by far the best one, "Hang Out Where You Matter" has some nice guitar hooks, but the lyrics are just juvenile…. Are they emulating a more mature 70's rock sound, or are they trying to attain a younger fan base…… Or… are they grabbing at whatever they can? It goes severely down hill from there. Song#2 "Ride The Wire" seemingly is a Pro Drug song and with an OOO Uh OOO chorus like beginning that just makes you want to turn to the next song immediately. The next song "Turn it around" is a lousy attempt at trying to offer an upbeat self motivator of a song…But it sounds way too much like the Bay City Rollers to get past the second verse. "On the charts" sounds like another Bay City Roller song…no hooks, and wat the hell does "I'm still your fan, my #33 on the charts" mean any way…?

Keep going?? Ok. Why not? "Two Year Runaround" - Another Bay City piece of crap. To be honest about it…I don't think I can go on about this recording any further. If Crash Kelly was trying to sound retro cool, they fail miserably. On the slight chance you are a HUGE fan of the Australian band Jet or the US based band Wolfmother…there is a very very remote chance you will like this album. If not, put this one back on the rack…

Out of 5 stars it gets ½ of 1 star. And that just represents the effort, nothing more.

Keep on rockin'
