The four young Germans (20, 17, 17 and
18 years old) in the hard rock band Rebellious Spirit,
which is fronted by a vocalist who's singing with a similar
voice mode to Vince Neil in Motley Crüe had in the good old
80's. Rebellious Spirit's music is quite pubertal and there's a
lot to wish for in the technical department and in the song
It sounds pretty thin and with wobbly choruses at times.
That's my overall impression of 'Gamble Shot' and also that some
of the tracks don't hold together completely. BUT they do also
deliver a young energetic sleaze rock with a lot of raw,
positive and aggressive attitude. The best moments are mostly in
the quicker and straight rock 'n roll tracks like in:' Lights
Out ', 'Let's Bring Back 'and' Sweet Access Right', all of which
stay at an higher OK level.
The album 'Gamble Shot' is a recommended purchase, if you're
interested of new young melodic rock bands. We will absolutely
hear more from these youngsters, that's my conviction.
This is promising debut album, but they need
more time to improve their technical skills and musicality to
make a bigger impression on me.
