"YOUNG & DANGEROUS"
BODY TALKS - A storming opening track, The Cult meets Queen in this high tempo hard rocker.
PRIMADONNA LIKE ME - This has a beat like Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up" but its a kind of Iggy Pop And The Stooges New Wave Punk rocker.
IN LOVE WITH A CAMERA - A quirky Glam Rock styled track with elements of Progressive and Classic Rock. Catchy chorus as well!
BULLETPROOF BABY - Blink-182 and the 90s Pop Alternative Punk bands spring to mind here. Great tempo, and incredibly engaging with the snappy chorus.
WHO AM I? - This is a great Alternative Pop song, similar to bands like Maroon 5 and a quirkiness of Electric Six.
PEOPLE - Snow Patrol meets early Def Leppard, radio friendly Pop Rock at its best.
FIRE (Part 1) - Alternative New Wave Rock akin to The Psychedelic Furs. Carries on right through at a brisk tempo and a booming chorus ending with a piano finish.
SOMEBODY NEW - Freddie Mercury reborn in this Queen-like slow rock ballad, awesome track.
TATLER MAGAZINE - Makes me think of The Sweet and Slade, a brilliant 70s Glam Rocker. Love this.
I DO IT SO WELL - This is an experimental Rock/Hip Hop fusion hybrid which has a Beastie Boys style that smacks you in the face like a brick. Instant favourite.
FREAK LIKE YOU - 80s sing-a-long Classic Rock, top stuff.
ASHES (Part 2) - Slow tempo anthemic Rock ballad, proving the band can turn their hands to all styles.
BODY TALKS (Featuring Kesha) - Remix of the opening track with Pop rap star Kesha. I am not familiar with much of her work but this really works. A great end to a great second album by the band!

PRINCE AND THE REVOLUTION "PURPLE RAIN" 1984 LET'S GO CRAZY - It's memorable opening line, "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today..." well you all know the rest! A powerhouse of a track, blistering guitar solos and a backdrop of spiritual spoken words about God and all things religious. Just a superb track which has many "air guitar" moments for the wannabe Rock stars, even though by their blinkered standards he was never thought of as a Rock guitarist...quite ridiculous in my opinion. TAKE ME WITH U - A sultry Pop ballad sung with Apollonia Kotero. Jill Jones, Wendy and Lisa sung on backing vocals to add "sexy fullness" to Apollonia's vocal. It was released as a double A side with "Let's Go Crazy" and was often played on the radio as an alternative. Allegedly it was going to appear on an Apollonia album. Romantic, sultry and sexy, all in the best possible Prince taste! THE
OLIVIA RODRIGO "SOUR" 2021 BRUTAL - Olivia Rodrigo's debut album opens with a scorching 90s Brit Pop Punk track, reminding me of Elastica and Sleeper in its female angst ridden vocals. It also has me thinking of Wendy James and Transvision Vamp in its brash style. The former Disney star shows she has left that way behind with great Indie Pop Rock album with a few expletives thrown in for good Punk measure! TRAITOR - A slowed down tempo for this track, a beautiful, soft and melancholy Indie Rock track similar to Avril Lavigne in style with maybe a little nod to Kate Bush or Tori Amos in the atmospheric vocals? Love this track. DRIVER'S LICENSE - Perrfect Pop break-up ballad, Taylor Swift, Sophie B.Hawkins and Michelle Branch spring to mind on listening to this. Beautiful heartfelt vocals over a sparse, orchestrated style moody backing. Really nice and accomplished composition from 18 yr old Olivia and her debut single. 1 STEP FORWARD, 3 STEPS BACK - Another
ABBA "THE ALBUM" 1977 EAGLE - The album opens with one of my alltime favourite Abba songs. Its mystical, space age, almost sci-fi musical backing and effects really got my mind engaged. This is just a superb composition, and in headphones this whisks you away into the sky, free as a bird. Almost 6 minutes of class. TAKE A CHANCE ON ME - One of the band's most successful singles, a great sing-a-long memorable chorus and chug-a-chug style backing. Europop Disco at its best. ONE MAN, ONE WOMAN - Piano and synthesised led track with string parts make this a lovely ballad with Frida (Anni-Frid Lyngstad) on the leading vocals. THE NAME OF THE GAME - Such a clever song, so many different sections in the song, even the vocals are jointly led by Frida and Agentha Faltskog with solo parts too. There is a lot going on and is very complex if you listen closely. Another hit single. MOVE ON - This is a Waltz song that starts
