The Dead Daisies debut album hit Australian shores this February and has had people talking about it left, right and centre. This, coinciding with a massive run of Australian shows has seen fans loving The Dead Daisies music on and off the stage. Not only have the fans been getting into the music but also some of the critics have added their thoughts as well. See what they have to say:
Theaureview.com -8.3/10: “The Dead Daisies have delivered a polished and well-produced album. The arrangements on each track are perfect, there’s no room for any other instruments and none of the tracks ever feel crowded by instrumentation. Each guitar solo compliments a vocal line, each keyboard riff backs the guitar up perfectly. This is a consistent album, and one that makes me hope this super group make another one soon.”
Blabbermouth.net – 7.5/10: “With all the hype surrounding them, The Dead Daisies don’t play like the next minute matters. What’s best said about their work is their concocted weave of seventies-to-eighties blues and hard rock is entertaining and occasionally explorative. Stevens and Lowy do have undeniable passion.”
Themusic.com.au – 3.5/5: “Whatever strong brew is responsible for this bizarre ‘90s rock lovechild can be commended – opener, ‘It’s Gonna Take Time’, showcases Stevens in his element, and the Foreigner/Bad Company vibe is enhanced with Slash’s input on ‘Lock ‘N’ Load’. It’s a well-trodden path of guilty pleasure rock”.
Jpsmusicblog.blogspot.com.au said: “The Dead Daisies waste no time getting down to business with the opener ‘Its Gonna Take Time’ and Richard Fortus’ guitar and Jon Stevens vocals blaze a trail with their performances. The title-song, ‘Lock ‘N’ Load’ features guest appearance from Slash as he lends his signature blues/rock sound to this up-tempo rocker.”
