RIVER CHILD by Red Sky Mary
(Carved Records)

If ever the rock music scene needed a solution to the self consciously stylised over-hyped "art-pop-rock" being peddled in the so-called mainstream music industry, ladies and gentlemen, I give you Red Sky Mary. Sam Vlasich (Vocals), Tom Boisse (Guitar), Gary Boisse (Bass).and Barrett Goeman (Drums). One listen through the band's latest release, 'River Child', you get it all: soulful crunching riffs, rolling bass, fluid, resonant playing and hooks that are solid gold. Exuberant rock music played with guts, power and boat loads of skill that captures perfectly the excitement and joy of the shared experience which is great Rock `n Roll music. The classic rock influences of bands like Led Zeppelin, Bad Company and Black Crowes are continuously evident from start to finish.  The opening track, "All Hell's Breaking Loose" is a great way to kick off the album with Tom Boisse's infectious guitar riff, and the groove rolls on with the excellent "Payback" up next. "Gone" is a faster number and shows the band's harder edge. Other songs guaranteed to get your blood pumping are, "Run Ragged", "South Of The City" and "Pride". In terms of the slower tracks, "I Will Wait For You" is a vibrant bluesy number and album closing, "River Child" finishes things off in rocking fashion. There isn't a bad tune to be found on this album. It just gets better with every listen because this band kicks serious butt! Red Sky Mary are ready to roll up their sleeves, and bring good old fashioned rock music back to the rock and roll faithful. This is a rock band that knows how to rock a groove, emote feeling, and draw in all those that encounter their passion serving up full-bodied rock music with soul, depth and confidence. To be enjoyed again, and again and again! - Highly Recommended
