Sex Museum - Fly by Night
By Brad Podray
Combine the voice of the Cranberries with
the guitar work of Nickelback, throw in a dose of older Creed rhythm and
what do you get? A terrible band unrelated to this review.
Since that two-sentence tangent
is over, on to the review! For those of you interested in what Sex
Museum's Fly by Night is, here is the summary: A two disc set of
hard rock played live that takes you directly out of wherever you are and
sticks you in a nice scummy bar. While in that scummy bar, you play
pool and pound down beer after beer while that cute blonde in the tight
jeans keeps on eyeing you, not because she thinks you're attractive but
rather because you're obnoxiously singing along with every song that the
local bar band is playing. That's the CD in a nutshell. On
this CD, you'll hear the hits they were famous for, such as the classic
"Flyin' High," which you may have heard at 4 AM somewhere on a college
radio station. While they lack the high-budget polish of many modern
pop-rock bands, there's a respectability and honesty about this CD that
makes it not suck. It uses the tried and true tactics made famous
by bands like Deep Purple and utilizes them in a way that's original enough
so that they can't be called hacks.
It has the grungy riffs and straightforward
lyrics about being a badass and loving women that everyone can relate to.
Deep philosophical undertones soak up the classic "Red ones" as the singer
belts out "I love you girls. I love all girls. Get into my
car. It's gonna be nice." While it does relate to a wide audience,
it's not exactly what one would call classic writing. To summarize
the CD again: straightforward hard rock double CD set of Sex Museum new
songs and classics that doesn't suck.
Sure to please: Old hard rock fans.
People who like being in bars.
Sure to disappoint: Rap fans. Techno
fans. Anybody who's favorite band released their first album after
