CD REVIEW: S/T by Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker

S/T by Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker
(High Roller Records)

The self titled debut release by Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker combines twin guitar harmonies with tight classic rock hooks. Featuring a guitar sound that is reminiscent of Thin Lizzy, these guys are just the right mixture of retro and modern rock! Check out "Haunt My Mind", "Serious", "Can't Change", "Wasted Time", "Mesmerizing Mind" and "Falling Into Darkness". These tracks give you a decent representation of what the rest of the album has in store. There is literally not a track on this album you will want to skip over! The album was recorded at Gutterveiw Recorders in Stockholm. Contributing musicians on the record include friends Nicke Andersson, Dolf De Borst och Tomas Eriksson of Imperial State Electric; Peter Stjärnvind (Nifelheim, Black Trip), Joseph Tholl (Enforcer, Black Trip), Robert Eriksson (ex The Hellacopters), Olle Dahlstedt (Entombed), Johan Bäckman (Necrocourse) and Johannes Borgström. Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker debut release has a great, upbeat, rock n' roll energy and spirit, and is incredibly fun to listen to. It's a shame more modern rock bands don't take this approach. It seems like having fun isn't allowed anymore in mainstream rock. If you are a fan of the "Classic Rock" vibe done up 70's style then look no further. I was blown away by how good this album is and how much like classic Thin Lizzy this band sounds. Excellent all around. These guys need much, much more airplay in America. And America needs more bands Like Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker. - Highly Recommended
