I remember a couple of years ago I bought an album with this Swedish band BAI BANG
and I totally disliked it and gave it away the very next day. So to be honest I did my best to forward this promo-CD called ‘Are You Ready’. The band’s 6th release, by the way. But I was stuck with it.
Well... I threw it in my totally exhausted CD-player and I discovered that this band is not
that bad after all. The music reminds me of a mix between Poison, Def Leppard, Aerosmith,
Ratt... and even Alice Cooper... especially on the very first track “I Love the Things You Hate”.
Then add a few sleaze rock bands and then I think you have a pretty good idea what to expect.
On the track “Bad Boys” they even sound a bit like Twisted Sister.
The band knows how to write a catchy tune, just take listen to tracks such as; “Born to Rock”
a track you’ve heard a million times, but contain a guitar riff and a chorus you wished you’ve
have written yourself. Or what about the just as catchy “Are you Ready I’m Ready”... sing-along
rock music of the highest calibre. The rocking “Longtime Cumin’ and “Bad Boys” are worth
The rest of the songs are sadly not above average in my humble opinion but this disc is still
suitable for a day at the beach in company with a few friends and a million beers.
Check it out and be your own judge.
