The Dead Daisies self titled album is pure, hard hitting rock and lots of it; twelve tracks of solid rock songs, most of which are extremely viable for airplay on commercial radio and, so far, their single releases have managed to achieve that which is no mean feat these days. It doesn't hurt the band's street cred to have ex Guns 'n' Roses guitarist Slash adding his expertise to the track 'Lock 'n' Load' which was the first single from the album and was in fact co-written by Slash and Stevens.

 

This is the debut album from the Super Group, led by vocalist Jon Stevens. Other than Jon and guitarist David Lowy, the line-up that you see at their 'live' shows these days is not quite the same as the line-up that recorded this album in the studio last year. There have been more than a few changes since then but the sound is still as punchy and tight as it is on this album.


The CD kicks off with the rockin' 'It's Gonna Take Time', the third single from the album. The track was written by Stevens, Lowy, John Fields and Vanessa Amorosi, who also contributed her very impressive vocals to the CD.

 

All this energy is balanced by the track 'Yesterday' slowing down the pace a little and the slightly bluesy 'Can't Fight this Feeling'. My personal favourites on the album, though, would have to be the catchy 'Yeah, Yeah, Yeah', which has a definite singalong hook to it and 'Writing on the Wall'. But then, all the tracks on this album are good; there isn't one that I would skip. Of course, it goes without saying that this is a CD that is best listened to LOUD so put it on and turn it up and get rockin'...
