"Bronx Cheer" (Wicked Cool Records; 2021)

Reviewed by Snidermann

As much as I love my metal music (and I do love good metal), I also really like good rock'n'roll. Steve Conte has been around for awhile and the name of this recording is "Bronx Cheer."

Steve is the former lead guitarist of the New York Dolls and Company of Wolves. He has spent some time in Japan working on anime soundtracks and he has worked with Billy Squier and Blood Sweat and Tears. Google him if you're interested—you might be surprised.

The minute "Bronx Cheer" starts, you think you know where the music is going. All you have to do is let the music flow and you are front row center! In just a few moments, you're singing the chorus right along with the track and that is just way too much fun.

Alas, I have to say I really don't know where this album is a little uneven and I wasn't sure what direction it was headed. I mean, really, just because I do not get where this band is going is no reason to trash them. They're obviously very talented and I liked this music, really I did, but at the same time I really didn't get it ... but that's okay. Maybe you will!

Give it a listen and see what you think. And let me know!

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.
