Lzzy Hale and her boys have put out a sophomore album that is much more varied than their previous efforts with tinges of southern rock, arena rock and even some pop overtones overlaid into their bread and butter hard rock. I think their branching out into different sounds really adds a level of complexity to their work. While they didn't get the mixture perfect on every song, the songs don't all sound the same and have much more personality. You won't find yourself thinking you accidentally hit the repeat button as each song is distinctly different which I really appreciate as that's a common problem within this genre. The inclusion of beautiful ballads like "Beautiful With You" or "Break In" make you appreciate that much more the hardness of other songs like "Love Bites."
The outstanding musicianship of the band is especially evident in the crafting of these songs. You'll find yourself waiting for a guitar breakdown or a quiet moment that helps convey emotion. Lzzy is simply an exceptional vocalist who can carry technical riffs, high notes and still convey heartbreaking vulnerability. This album also seems more personal than their last which showcases Lzzy's talent even more.
This album is empowering, strong, soft, sexy and an insane amount of fun. It's system blaring, top down on a warm night kind of music. Highly recommend.
**Like the others I also recommend getting the deluxe version. I personally wish the extra tracks had just been put on the album.Read more ›
Lzzy Hale is a mix of Joan Jett and Lita Ford. She's by far the superior singer of the three, though Lita has her beat on lead guitar of course. Just check out the video for "Love Bites (So Do I)" on that "video sharing" site and see what I mean. A hot chick with attitude. The rest of the band holds their own as well, especially Lzzy's brother on the drums.
The song lyrics range from fun to sexy. Nothing too deep, but they are a whole lotta fun to sing along to.
If you like rock with heavy riffs, a few ballads thrown in the middle for balance, melodic song structures and a female singer who is in my mind one of the best rock vocalists working today, buy this album now. I bought the deluxe version because it includes three bonus tracks.
