Geelong’s own Dangerous Curves have unleashed their debut album, and what a rocker it is! A breath of fresh air in the current climate, 10 songs songs of hard rockin, sleazin’ music that takes me back to the glory days of the late 80′s, where music was hard, heavy and fun!
‘Sensational Submit’ starts thing off, and it is a cracking song. Killer chorus, catchy riffs and the scene is set. Track two, ‘Art of the Heart’ is the ‘single’, with a film clip shot in Geelong’s very own bowling alley, and has a sleazier vibe than the opener whilst retaining the catchy element.
There are touches of southern blues/rock which enhances the sleazier side of things, but ultimately, this is a hard rock album, whichever angle you take.
I must say the album lost me (just a little!) towards the middle, then things cracking again with the title track and the point is really driven home for the remainder of the album. You can hear the influences of bands like Poison, Kiss, Motley Crue throughout the album, but this is no copy cat album. A solid performance all round, these lads just might make it on a bigger scale. Stay tuned…
