MADAME LIBERTANAH by Bohemian Lifestyle
(Attitude Recordings)

Listening to the latest release from Swedish rockers, 'Madame Libertanah' by Bohemian Lifestyle is like getting a good grade on a test you didn't study for, or finding a four-leaf clover. The music isn't incredibly intense nor is it innovative, but what it lacks in innovation it more than makes us for in jump-up-and-down fun. The band is comprised of, Daniel Gustafsson (Keyboard/Vocals), Filip Conic (Lead Guitar), Richard Lindström (Drums) and Pontus Viberg (Lead Vocals/Guitar). 'Madame Libertanah'  is 100% energy throughout with contrasts in tempo and heaviness. These are tightly crafted songs with more hooks than a fisherman's tackle box. Their songs are refreshingly structured and predictable in a way that is wholeheartedly gratifying. A combination of '90's loud guitar rock, '80's energy, and '70's glam. Songs like "Libert├ínah ", "Fool's Mask", and "A Brighter Day " are good old fashioned power pop gems. While tracks like, "Woodlands", "Coming Back Around" and "Superman" are guaranteed to satisfy you riff cravings. Songs on this album have a certain staying power that you won't find with most artists in this genre. This is one of those recordings I feel crosses all boundaries in the world of rock music. Like other hard rocking European band's that have came before them, Bohemian Lifestyle know the power of a good riff, and this album is chock block full of enough to keep air guitarists around the world throwing the windmill shape until their arms are ready to fall out of their sockets. 'Madame Libertanah'  is unapologetically radio-friendly and a hell of a lot of fun. It's vibe is so contagious, it practically yanks you out of your seat and commands you to move! - Highly Recommended
