'77
21st Century Rock
Rating
Style: Hardrock/Blues
Release date: April 26th 2010
 

You don't need a bachelor degree in Rock to be able to point out where 77's influences come from. It is one band and one band only: AC/DC. This band hails from Spain and they play the AC/DC blues like we know it from the Aussies in their early Bon Scott era. Rock'n Roll boogie songs with blues.

Armand Valeta must be practicing a lot to sound as the re-incarnation of Bon Scott; with your eyes closed you really think it is Mr. Scott. Perhaps the little Spanish accent is open to doubt. This record was already released by the band in March 2009 and only available on imitated basis. Listenable signed the band and now it will be available for everyone. With this signing, Listenable Records has recruited their own AC/DC clone. With bands such as Airbourne and Big Ball there seems to be a kind of AC/DC revival. I don't think they are as good as Airbourne, because 77 donít bring in any new elements. You could easily say that 77 is an AC/DC rip-off, but it is a very good rip-off.

I give them the benefit of the doubt, there are many power metal bands that sound just like Helloween also and still we give them high marks, so why not a band that sounds like AC/DC? If you want to go back to the year 77 to feel young again and boogie all along, try this one.
