Strange Karma’s New LP Will Appeal to Any Classic Rock Fan

Strange Karma - Cold Blooded Cover Art

Courtesy: Chipster PR

Early this year, Strange Karma released its latest album Cold Blooded to the masses.  The 10-song, 41-minute record, is a work that will appeal easily to fans of Savatage, Queensryche, Poison and other similar acts.  That is due in part to the musical arrangements presented throughout the record.  They will be discussed shortly.  The songs’ lyrical content also adds to that appeal.  The record’s sequencing rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is important to the album’s overall presentation.  All things considered, they make Cold Blooded a record that 80s and 90s rock fans will find hot.

Strange Karma’s new full-length studio recording Cold Blooded is a work that any 80s and 90s rock fan will find enjoyable.  That is due in part to the record’s collective musical arrangements.  Some of the arrangements are clearly guitar-driven while others are driven more through their piano arrangements.  Just as important to note here is the fact that the arrangements vary between ballads and more operatic style songs that.  That combination, again, lends itself easily to comparisons to works crafted by Savatage, Queensryche, Poison and other similar acts.  At the same time, the comparisons are not just musical mirror images of the noted compositions.  Rather, they only display the influences of those noted bands.  Keeping that in mind, it becomes clear why the musical arrangements presented in this record are so important to its overall presentation.  They are, collectively, not the record’s only key element to examine.  The record’s lyrical content is just as important to examine as its musical arrangements.

The lyrical content presented throughout Cold Blooded is critical to discuss because, as is the case with the record’s musical arrangements, its lyrical content throws back to themes used widely in similar compositions from the late 80s and early 90s, too.  Case in point is the album’s lead single ‘Devil From The Moon.’  The very title seems somewhat eerie yet somewhat campy.  The lyrics build on that foundation as front man Martin Strange sings, “It’s 12 o’clock, it’s midnight/The moon shines/Night is day/All to you/Everything’s gonna be alright/Wolves are howling/The wind is blwoing/You’re running and running/running to nowhere/The shadow is right behind you/I’m the devil/I’ll find you/You belong to me/Bow your heads/I’ll set you free.”  On the surface, this sounds more like something that one might expect from a black metal band.  But the reality is that it is nothing bad at all.  That is illustrated even more through the song’s video.  It is just one of the songs that serves to show how this record transports listeners back to the previously noted musical era.  ‘I Believe (London Town)’ is yet another example of how the record lyrically reaches back in time.

‘I Believe (London Town),’ with its gentle, flowing piano and bass-driven arrangement sees Strange singing, “You want to go/And you never ever get there/You run and you swim but you’re standing still/The thought in your mind/You believe in something new…”  He adds later in the song, “I believe I’m gonna make it some day/I believe I’ll make it may way.”  Such lyrical content coupled with the song’s musical arrangement harkens directly back to the days of big riffs and even bigger hair, once more why it will appeal to the noted audiences.  It is just one of those lyrically positive yet somewhat cheesy wordings that one can’t help but enjoy even as a guilty pleasure.

On another note, ‘Crying For Your Love,’ with its brooding lyrical content is yet another example of how this record lyrically reaches back to days gone by.  Strange’s subject sings here about love lost in an over the top manner, “In night and day/I think of you/Tears running down my face/Lying here/Staring in empty space…thinking of better days/Thinking of you/Thinking of our love.”  The song’s musical arrangement couples with this over-the-top lyrical content (and Strange’s delivery therein) to make this a piece that would have fit in quite easily with the songs that it strives to emulate.  Considering this, the song proves why it is another work that will appeal to fans of Strange Karma’s key audience lyrically just as much as musically.  When joined with the record’s other songs, their lyrical content proves much the same, proving why the record in whole will appeal to those listeners.  Keeping all of this in mind, the lyrical content presented in these songs is only one more part of what makes the album appealing to fans of late 80s and early 90s rock.  The record’s sequencing is just as important to note as its musical arrangements and lyrical content.

The musical arrangements and lyrical content presented throughout Cold Blooded show from one song to the next prove to be critical to the album’s overall presentation.  They are not its only key elements to examine, though.  The record’s sequencing is just as important to examine here as those elements.  The record’s sequencing is important to note because it exhibits a well thought out balance of energy from beginning to end.  The album’s first two offerings are high-energy pieces that eventually make way to a much more reserved energy in ‘Crying For Your Love,’ the record’s third offering.  As the record nears its midway point, the band mixes things up even more with the coupling of ‘Realize’ and ‘I Believe.’  ‘Realize’ is a high-energy piece from start to finish while ‘I Believe’ boasts its own energy.  The catch with this song is that it is not as heavy as ‘Realize.’  That combination of energies within ‘I Believe’ and in the contrast of ‘I Believe’ to ‘Realize’ things get even more interesting as the album progresses back into a heavier vibe in its next trio of songs.  Those songs eventually give way to an arrangement that is best described as something akin to a southern rock arrangement in ‘Hey Man.’  The album’s closer, ‘Dreams’ can easily be compared to compositions from Savatage and Trans Siberian Orchestra with its driving guitar-centered arrangement.  It is yet another change from the songs that came before; a change that once again, audiences will appreciate.  When it is considered along with the other energy variations exhibited throughout the record, the whole of those constant changes is just as certain to keep listeners engaged as the songs’ musical arrangements and their lyrical content.  When all of this is taken into account together, it becomes clear why Cold Blooded is a record that any hot blooded 80s and 90s rock fan will enjoy.

Strange Karma’s latest full-length studio recording Cold Blooded is a work that any hot blooded 80s and 90s rock fan will appreciate.  As has been noted, that is due to musical arrangements that reach liberally back to the big guitar riffs and flowing piano lines that made music from that age so popular.  It is also due to lyrical content that reaches just as blatantly back to that era as the songs’ musical arrangements.  The record’s sequencing rounds out its most important elements.  The energy variations exhibited in the songs’ arrangements are constant from the record’s beginning to its end.  Each element is important in its own way to this record’s appeal as has been noted already.  All things considered, the noted elements together make Cold Blooded a classic rock throwback that classic rock fans will appreciate.  It is available now.  More information on Cold Blooded is available now along with all of Strange Karma’s latest news and more at:

‘Loud Hailer’ Speaks “Volumes” About Beck’s Talent, Importance

Courtesy: Rhino Records

Legendary guitar virtuoso Jeff Beck will release his latest live recording this fall.  The recording, Live at the Hollywood Bowl, will be released Oct. 6 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.  Considering that this is still August, that is a while to wait. Beck’s fans do have something to satiate themselves while they wait for that recording’s release, though in the form of his most recent recording Loud Hailer.  The 11-song studio recording was released July 15, 2016 via Rhino Records, and was his first full-length studio recording – at the time – in six years.  While more than a year has passed since its original release, it still speaks just as loudly (yes, that awful pun was fully intended) today as it did in its original release.  That is due to the songs’ diverse musical arrangements and their equally diverse range of lyrical topics.  The record’s opener, ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised’ supports that statement.  The same can be said of the deeply moving ‘Scared For The Children’ and of the funky ‘O.I.L.’ Each song in its own way shows why this record stands out.  When set alongside its other eight songs, the whole of the songs proves that this record speaks volumes about not only Jeff Beck but also his fellow musicians.

Jeff Beck’s latest live recording Live Hailer is a work that speaks volumes about the legendary guitarist’s place in today’s music community.  It says loud and clear that he is still one of the industry’s elite artists.  That is made evident from the album’s outset in the form of ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.’  This infectious blues-rock composition is a slow but heavy and is a solid starting point for the album.  That is thanks to the pairing (in this critic’s view) of Beck with fellow guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. The pair’s work conjures thoughts of some of rock’s greatest blues-based works past and present.  Drummer Davide Sollazi and bassist Giovanni Pallotti partner to add even more depth to the song’s arrangement. Singer Rosie Bones’ vocal delivery (and the effects used to enhance that delivery) put the finishing touch to the song’s arrangement.  When all of the noted parts are joined as one, they make this arrangement a work that easily sticks in listeners’ minds.  With this in mind, the song’s arrangement is only one part of what makes it stand out. Its lyrical content is just as important to note.

The lyrical content at the center of ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised’ is presented in more spoken word fashion than singing. It finds Bones stating, “The revolution will be televised/You can watch in HD/You talk like a weekend warrior/From the safety of your city/The graphics won’t be as realistic as Grand Theft Auto 3/Guess that makes the wheel unwheelable/This s**** real baby/I think you’d better turn the volume down/So you can’t hear them plea/Suppose you’d better change the channel…the revolution will be televised and you can choose to watch or not/But if we all just talk from the safety of our sofas there won’t be much of a revolution to watch.”  Bones comes across as making a social commentary here, saying the revolution will only happen, but only if people get out and get involved instead of sitting at home hiding behind keyboards and in front of their televisions.  That is just this critic’s own interpretation and should not be taken as the only interpretation.  When this is set against Bones’ spoken word style delivery of that seeming message, it makes the song that much heavier.  When her delivery and statement join with the song’s already heavy musical arrangement, the whole of those elements shows clearly this song is a solid starter for Loud Hailer and – in itself – why Loud Hailer speaks so loudly.  It is just one of the songs that stands out in this record.  ‘Scared for the Children,’ which comes a little later in the record’s sequence, shows just as much why Loud Hailer speaks volumes.

‘Scared For The Children’ stands out just as much as ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised’ because it is so in a way that is completely unlike its counterparts on this album.  Musically speaking the song is another blues-based composition.  But its gentile, ethereal  melody – driven largely by Beck – is one that evokes such powerful emotions in itself.  If not for the obvious social commentary at the heart of its lyrics, the song’s musical arrangement could be interpreted as a romantic work or something meant to evoke thoughts of other innocence.  When it is joined with the noted commentary, it makes the song in whole one of those works that is heavy without having to be heavy. The commentary in question addresses how far the world has fallen over time.  That is evident as Bones sings in the song’s lead verse, “Billy skipped school again/Lookin’ like a fool again/What a little waste/For a taste of a big boy’s life/I’m scared for the children/Computer screens and magazines/Manufactured hopes and dreams/Playin’ in a comfy box/Cause mother’s got her shows to watch/I’m scared for the children/This is the end of the age of the innocent/One more game before they go/This is the end of the age of the innocent/What do we leave them with/I suppose we’ll never know.  The concern continues as Bones sings about “little boys having too much fun playing with a big boy’s gun’ and an old man “kissing the last blade of grass” as “the last bird dies.”  Again, Bones makes a very heavy statement here.  What is so interesting here is that in so many cases, one might expect such powerful statements to be more forceful and coupled with a much harder-edged composition.  Yet even in this setting both elements work so well alone and partnered.  When they are joined, they make ‘Scared For The Children’ a song that will most definitely stick with listeners just as much as ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised,’ proving yet again why Loud Hailer speaks so loudly to Beck’s continued place in the musical universe.  It is not the last of the record’s songs that serves to support that statement, either.  ‘O.I.L.,’ the album’s penultimate composition is one more example of what makes Loud Hailer another bold statement from Jeff Beck.

‘O.I.L.,’ like ‘The Revolution Will Be Televised’ and ‘Scared For The Children’ is another clear example of why Jeff Beck’s latest full-length studio recording is another bold, loud statement from the veteran guitarist.  That is evident in part through the song’s infectious old-school funk-based arrangement.  The arrangement plays out like the best works from Sly and the Family Stone, Parliament Funkadelic and other similar acts.  Even more interesting is the infusion of Beck’s blues influence into that arrangement.  The coupling of those styles works surprisingly well.  The song’s lyrical content adds even more interest for listeners as Bones seems to sing about celebrating life, but in a clean way, even going so far as to say she doesn’t want to use drugs to celebrate.  It’s a simple statement, but a positive one nonetheless.  Bones’ seeming celebratory lyrics, coupled with the song’s equally celebratory arrangement, is certain to put a smile on any listener’s face and have any listener dancing along. Keeping that in mind, that whole stands out from the previously discussed songs and the rest of the album’s songs.  That being the case, that continued diversity and originality (musically and lyrically), shows once more why Loud Hailer is such a standout album.  When the song is joined with its counterparts, the whole of those songs makes Loud Hailer a work that says loud and clear that Jeff Beck is still one of the most important names in the musical universe today.

Jeff Beck’s latest full-length studio recording Loud Hailer is a work that proves from start to finish was well worth the — at the time – long six-year wait. That is due to the diversity displayed throughout in its musical and lyrical content.  From the musically heavy to the emotionally heavy to points in between, this record offers plenty for every listener.  That is proven in part through the songs discussed here.  That is not to discount the other eight songs that make up the rest of the record’s body.  All things considered, the musical and lyrical content presented in this record makes it a work that says loud and proud that Jeff Beck is still one of the musical universe’s elite artists.  Loud Hailer is available now in stores and online.  More information on the album (as well as his upcoming live recording Live in Hollywood – set for release Oct. 6 via Eagle Rock Entertainment) is available online along with Beck’s latest news and more at:
