Alcohol & Bad Decisions includes ten tracks, in which four of them have music videos. A nice choice for the album’s beginning with a powerful song was‘Crazy Janet’. It takes you smoothly to “Mary” which is already featured as a music video; which released last June. In general, I like all their music videos concept, as well for directions, story, and performing. ‘Crossing Guard’ one of the heaviest songs on the album, I like the rhythmic riffs and the speed soloing that reminds me of late 80’s and early 90’s era so much. ‘Mr. Suit’ – by the name I was expecting to luxurious cars and nice suits and some hot chicks! The song illustrates how it goes when you suddenly lose money and authority, it’s a short message with to-the-point music.
Their focus on music appeared more in songs like ‘Dear Alice’, ‘Temporary Friends’and ‘Brotherman’. The variations of guitar sounds, soloing techniques and for the singing style as well.
‘Paranoia’ is very nice regarding music, but I didn’t enjoy the video really that much. I would say it’s the least of quality among the others but for ‘Street Named Desire’ it’s amazing indeed, and I like the change! The concept of the clown’s makeup and characters are great elements along with the music. For sure, “Street Named Desire” is the astonishing video of them all.
‘Breaking Bad’ is a very well-made song indeed. I can see that it’s a mix of hard rock, punk and rock n’ roll. You cannot believe it, right? Check the WAH solo and if you didn’t get melted by the sounds, then you may face a listening problem! Of course, I would call it a stunning outro for the album.
The band’s influences for bands like; Mötley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses, Audioslave , RHCP, Rise Against, and System of a Down are very obvious in their music. I believe this band would be one the booming Pop Rock acts very soon.
