CD REVIEW: S/T by Federal Charm

S/T by Federal Charm
(Independent Release)

Stunning debut release by Federal Charm from Manchester, England. Nick Bowden - Vocals, Guitars, Paul Bowe - Guitars, L.D. Morawski - Bass and Danny Rigg - Drums. These guys mine a somewhat retro take on modern hard rock with Led Zeppelin being an obvious influence. The classic rock influences are pretty obvious, but most of the time it doesn't sound like they're trying to copy one particular band. Their debut outing is one of the best I've heard in a very long time!!! Outstanding musicians, to rock solid vocals and without the stellar writing & composing, they could be lost. Not one bad song on this album, though I do have a few favorites. "I'm Not Gonna Beg"will wake you up and shock every nerve. "Somebody Help Me" will blow you away, tug at your heart, you don't want that song to end! "Tell Your Friends", is a all out blues rocker that is best played at maximum volume! The guitar playing is masterful.The band is just damn good. If they get any better it could hurt. What a powerful debut outing. Federal Charm bring back great vintage rock and roll sounds, good songwriting. The bottom line,  This is a great album and a great band! If you love music, You owe it to yourself to listen to this amazing band! You will not regret it. Get into these guys now before they make it big so you can say "I told you so" to all your friends. Trust me. - Highly Recommended
