REVOLUCION by The Dead Daisies
(Spitfire Music)

The Dead Daisies are back with their highly anticipated sophomore release, 'Revolucion'. The new album also features the new line-up of newly appointed vocalist John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, Union, The Scream), along with Guns'n'Roses guitarist Richard Fortus and keyboard player Dizzy Reed, bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent) and drummer Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne). Everything about 'Revolucion' is great; musically, lyrically, the vibe of it is incredible. I don't care who was in what band, this is simply addictive! Each song is a hit, hook laden and well written. Hats off to John Corabi for his vocal delivery it soars all over the album. The album opens with the down and dirty swagger of, "Mexico" and is followed up with a solid take on Willie Dixon's, "Evil". From there it's non stop rocking with, "Looking for the One", "Empty Heart" and mid tempo soul mover, "Make The Best Of It". Other highlights are, "My Time", and a rocking cover of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band’s “Midnight Moses”. I have to say, just like their debut, 'Revolucion', get better and better the more you listento it. Don't get me wrong, it was great on the first spin, but the more you listen, the more depth you realize is there. The album has more layers and intricacies to explore than most bands these days. What we have here with The Dead Daisies are a band of brothers pumping out powerful rock songs served up with that devious sense of mischief which has always lived at the heart of rock and roll. For fans of unadulterated, unhyphenated rock with catchy hooks and thick riffs. 'Revolucion' is a superb sophomore effort and just goes to show you don't have to conform to any latest trends to produce a stunning 'no frills'  rock album that you will play again and again. - Highly Recommended
