Title: Crazy LixxLabel: Frontiers Records
out of Malmo like a rock n' roll hurricane in 2002, Crazy
Lixx's Danny Rexon and his band of rock n' roll renegades
brought that 80’s sleazy Hard Rock vibe kicking and
screaming into the now, when they released their debut 'Loud
Minority' in 2007.
with three albums under their belts, each one surpassing its
predecessor, the band return in 2014 with a self titled
an old school Hair Metal fans like myself, this album is an
absolute pure joy to listen too, as the band continue to
wear their influences on their sleeves.
get underway with the current single ‘Hell Raising
Women’, an all guns blazing hard rock assault on the
senses. This one really sets you up for the rest of
album as it continues its Hard Rock/Sleazy vibe with
excellent anthemic ‘Sound Of The Loud Minority.
hard rocking keeps on rolling with the bands Skid Row
influenced ‘Outlaw’, before the band pay homage to the
big hair tight jeans of the Sunset Strip, no not the bands,
but those ‘Girls Of The 80’s’ with this mid-tempoed
rocker. That same mid-tempo Hard Rock style is
continued on ‘I Miss The Mark’, before bringing back the
heat with the excellent ‘All Looks, No Hooks’.
Another ripped slice of Hollywood styled sleaze that will
make you want to dig out your tightest jeans, rip up a few
tees and dust off those cowboy boots once more, or is that
so many good tracks under their belts you’d think
there’d be as few fillers in here as well, but this
isn’t the case, as the band bring out the big Hard Rock
guns for the Krokus styled no-nonsense rocker ‘Aint No
Rest In Rock n Roll’. Nowif this one doesn't get
those feet tapping, then you’ve got no rock n' roll in
rock n' roll frenzy continues with the harder edged arena
rock of ‘Call To Action’ and the hook laden ‘Heroes
Are Forever’, then it's time for some dirty blues with the
storming ‘Psycho City’, before this superb album closes
as it started, with an all-out rock assault courtesy of
‘Wrecking Ball Crew’.
Every band must have a self titled album in their catalogue and with this their fourth album, the Swedes have an album that is more than worthy of the name. If you liked the previous three albums, then you're gonna love this one for sure. ALL KILLER, NO FILLER! Enough said.
