"Deuce" (Meteor City; 2004)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Black Nasa's sophomore effort is a revival of sorts, taking the '70s rock shuffle of pre-sellout Aerosmith and UFO and beefing it up a bit for today's ears. 

Stripped down to the bare essentials, Black Nasa's fuzz-toned frolic is best when a big chorus like the one found on "Kamikaze" is sung from the rock'n'roll underbelly, but when the band gets bluesy - thanks to the slide guitar and organ one-two punch of "Light" - it's like 1975 all over again. 

Get in the Chevelle, hit the drive-thru burger joint, and crank this CD to 11, and you'll be the envy of the whole strip.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
