“REMARKABLE & STILL RELEVANT”

AS A AVID MUSIC LOVER, AND AS A MUSIC JOURNALIST, I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED WRITING MUSIC ALBUM REVIEWS, AND ONE OF THE LOVED REVIEWS I’VE WRITTEN WAS A REVIEW I WROTE A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO ON A VINTAGE & CLASSIC ROCK BAND NAMED “FRIJID PINK”. THE BAND IS A PHENOMENAL BAND AND AS I STATED IN MY LAST REVIEW OF THEM, I USED THE WORDS “TOTAL RELEVANT” AND THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE. WITH AN ALBUM NAMED AFTER THERE HOME TOWN “MADE IN DETROIT”. THIS BAND JUST SURPASED THEIR 50TH ANNIVERSARY AS A BAND. DRUMMER & WHO I CONSIDER “FRONTMAN” FOR THE BAND RICK STEVERS, HAS SHARED THIS WITH ME AND GRACED ME WITH A COPY OF THE ALBUM FROM 2014 CALLED “MADE IN DETROIT” TO QUOTE THE BAND THESE GUYS ARE MORE THAN THE “BAND NEXT DOOR” AND THEY START OF THIS AMAZING AND REALLY ENTERTAINING AND FRESH ALBUM & APPROACH  THE SOUNDS OF TODAY. THE SONG CALLED “BAND NEXT DOOR, IS A RIPPER AND GRIPPER THE GUITARS ARE STRUMMING AND HAVE A SUPERB SOUND. ALONG WITH THE BEAT OF DRUMS KEEPING THE RHYTHM AND KEEPING MY HEAD BOPPING AWAY TO THE MIRACULOUS MUSIC BEING HEARD. AS I LISTENED THE NEXT SONG CALLED “TEAR” THE SONG HAS A REAL 60’S VIBE, WITH AN ADDED ELEMENT OF BLUES AND INCORPORATES AMAZING LYRICS AND TOTAL MUISCALITY. WITH THIS BEING SAID THIS SONG BRINGS IN THE KEYBOARDS OF CHUCK MANGUS THAT RINGS IN A TRUE 60’S FLARE AND IS A REALLY FRESH AND NICE FEELING THAT THIS SOUND IS STILL AROUND WITHIN MUSIC OF THIS AMAZING ALBUM. THE NEXT SONG IS A TRUE MASTERY AND SHEER MUSIC THAT IS AN AMAZING FEEL THAT TRULY “TAKE ME BACK” TO A TIME WHERE MUSIC LIKE THIS RULED ON AND OFF THE STAGE. THE SAX AND THE SOUND IS SUPERB AND BROUGHT MY MIND BACK TO THIS VERY INTREGAL PART OF MUSIC HISTORY. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “DETROIT ROCK N ROLL, HAS A REAL AND AMAZING ABILITY TO LEAN YOUR EARS BENT TOWARDS THE 60’S PSYCHEDELIC TIME OF MUSIC. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “LIVING BLUES” HAS THE ABILITY TO MOVE AND GROOVE YOU, THE GUITARS AREA BLAZING AND REALLY RIPPING AT THE SEAMS, WHERE I REALLY FELT, THE EMOTIONS THROUGH THE MUSIC , AND ONCE AGAIN HAS A REAL ROCK AND ROLL FEEL TO THE SONG, WHERE IT GOES TO PROVE THAT ONE IS NEVER TOO OLD TO ROCK & ROLL. “COME KNOCKING” HAS A REAL BLUESY FEEL TO IT, BUT ADDS IN THE CONSISTENT ELEMENT OF THAT 60’S VIBE AND SOUND THAT HAS BEEN ABSENT WITHIN THE MUSIC BANDS OF TODAY. MOST BANDS FROM THE 60’S AND 70’S SHARED THIS SOUND. “PROMISES” SLOWS DOWN THE TEMPO A LITTLE TO HEAR, IF YOU WILL THE TENDER SIDE OF THE BAND,  BUT REMAINS WITH THE SOUND THAT IS REMARKABLE AND WONDERFUL AND IS TRULY A SOUND THAT ONLY FRIJID PINK HAS. THE SOUNDS OF FRIJID PINK, ALSO HAS AN ELEMENT OF THEATRIC ROCK TO IT WITH THE SONGS “PROMISES & COMING HOME” SHARE THIS, IN ADDITION TO THIS  BOTH HAVE THAT FANCY FOOT STOMPIN’ AND GEAR JAMMING SOUND THAT KEEP THE SPEAKERS ROCKING AND POUNDING THROUGH THE AIR. AS I LISTENED TO THESE SONGS I REALLY GOT A TRUE FEEL FOR THE BAND THAT I’VE ALWAYS ENJOYED, AND NOW BROUGHT ME TO ANOTHER LEVEL OF SERIOUS LOVE FOR THE BAND & THEIR COMPLETE SOUND THAT IS TRULY REMARKABLE. FRIJID PINK IS ONE THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME. “WICKED WOMAN” BROUGHT MY EARS TO FULL ATTENTION, AS I FELT AS I STEPPED BACK INTO TIME WITH THE BAND AND THE TOTAL COMPLETNESS OF THE BAND. THIS SONG HAS IT ALL, PROBABLY MY FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM IT INCOROPORATES THE ENTIRE BAND, & ALLOWS YOU TO TRULY GET A FEEL OF THE MUSICALITY, WHILE  HEARING THE TOGETHERNESS OF THE BAND, GUITARS, KEYBOARDS, DRUMS AND HAS THAT ABILTY TO CATCH YOU,  AND MAKE YOU ASK PLEASE PLAY THAT AGAIN. WITH THIS, THE NEXT SONG CALLED “SLIP AWAY” FRIJID PINK SHOWCASE THEIR TALENT AND KEEPS THE TOTAL RELEVANT FEELING AND TOTAL AWESOME SOUND THAT  TRULY MISSED AND APPRECIATED BY MYSELF AND OTHER TRUE MUSIC FANS OUT THERE. THE SONG HAS THAT ONCE AGAIN TRUE “ROCK N ROLL FEEL TO IT AND IS NICE TO KNOW THAT ROCK HAS A VOICE AND THIS SONG ALLOWS YOU TO REALLY TAKE NOTICE THAT ROCK N ROLL FEEL. “WINK” ANOTHER SONG AND A KIND OF SHOWOFF KIND OF SONG, AND HAS A FUN FEEL TO IT, HOWEVER THE SONG IS TRULY A SOUND THAT IS MISSING FROM OUR EVERYDAY HOUSEHOLD BAND, THE SONG SHOWCASES GUITAR RIFFS AND THE TOTAL PACKAGE OF WHO FRIJID PINK AS A BAND. FOR A BAND WHO HAS BEEN RELEVANT FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS, AND AN AMAZING ALBUM THAT SHOWCASES THE BAND AND THEIR REMARKABLE SOUND THAT ALLOWS ONE TO STEP BACK INTO THE MUSICAL TIME CAPSULE AND REVISIT AND ALL THE WHILE KNOWING THAT THE SOUND IS AMAZING IN YESTERYEAR AS IT IS TODAY. A TRULY AMAZING BAND AND A BAND WHO TRULY IS “MADE IN DETROIT” AND BAND THAT I AM TRULY HONORED TO WRITE A MUSIC REVIEW FOR  AND TO BE ALLOWED TO HEAR THE SOUND OF ROCK AND ROLL AT IT’S FINEST. I THANK RICK STEVERS FOR HIS AMAZING FRIENDSHIP & KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION HE HAS SHARED WITH ME ABOUT THIS AMAZING AND YES “TOTAL RELEVANT” BAND AND LOOKING FORWARD TO KEEPING THIS IN MY OWN TIME CAPSULE OF AWESOME MEMORIES, AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SEE WHAT THIS AMAZING BAND ARRIVES WITH NEXT, A BAND WHO IS TRULY “MADE IN DETROIT”

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. with over 30 years experience. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry, writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and be exposed to their craft. As of date I have written well over 180 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists, but all in all my wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry and with my "Positive " music posts through my writing about them and reviewing their album always in a "Positive" forum.
