"Tropical Thunder" (Frontiers; 2021)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Rock'n'roll, be it 70s, 80s or whatever, is simply one of the best forms of music available. I may be wrong and can and probably will be disputed, but fuck it, rock'n'roll is what I like.

My current project is "Tropical Thunder" from the rock band Cruzh. Frankly, I have never heard of this band before but I saw it in my Apple Music queue, so I thought what the hell.

This music is straight-forward rock'n'roll: great vocals, killer musicians, right on up two the production value. This Canadian band rocks like a well-oiled machine. Before long, you're singing right along with the band and that, my friend, is when you know the music is good.

On the first spin, I found myself waiting with bated breath for the next song to start. This music is fun, easy to listen to, and has been on my A-List for the past 24 hours and, frankly, I do not see that changing.

It seems that there are a few bands out there with the same name but just remember this band was started in 2013 and, with the "zh" at the end of their name, you will get it.

I liked the music. It's simple, toe-tapping fun and very identifiable. This shit is real, in-your-face and, after a few spins, I found that you should turn it up as loud as you can. Not only did my wife start to like it, the neighbors seemed to like it also.

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.
