” STRANGE ANGST & MORE”

ALICE SWEET ALICE, A ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC GROUP AND THEIR NEW RELEASE CALLED “VIOLA ORGANISTA, THE MACABRE CARNIVAL” THE BAND HAS A ANGST FEEL TO THEIR ALMOST REBELISH SOUND. WUTH THE FIRST CUT ON THE ALBUM CALLED “DAREDEVIL” A ROCK SONG THAT GIVES TRUE MEANING TO ROCK AND ROLL, THE SONG HAS A CONSTANT ROCK BEAT AND THE VOCALS OF LISA JEAN, POWER PACK YOUR EARDRUMS FULL OF HARD DRIVEN AND MELODIC METAL. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “STRANGE THINGS” HAVE A STRANGE WAY OF MUISCAL EXPRESSIVENESS THAT ROCKS YOU TO THE CORE, AND DON’T HOLD BACK IN ANY WAY, THE SONG HAS A FEELING OF DIZZYNESS TO IT, THAT ONE MUST BE IN THE FRAME OF MIND, AND CONTINUE THAT PROVERBIAL ROCK BEAT AND BORDERLINES A PUNK FEEL TO IT. AS I LISTENED THE MUSIC IS DARK IN SOME PLACES AND LISA JEAN AND THE BAND KEEP THE ROCK FLOWING THROUGH YOUR EARS SIDEWAYS, HOWEVER MUSIC IS AN EXPRESSION OF WHO WE ARE AND THE NEXT SONG CALLED “VIOLA ORGANISTA…AND OTHER IMPOSSIBLE DREAMS, THE HEAD BANGING AND METAL AND VOCALS SHOWCASES THE BANDS THIRST FOR A SOUND THAT IS HEAVY AND DEEP WITH SPEED OVERTONES THAT KEEP THE SPEAKERS EDGING OFF THEIR SEATS. “LITTLE MISS KNOW IT ALL” THE PUNK AND ANGST CONTINUES TO SOAR THROUGH MY SPEAKERS AND RATTLE THEIR PLACEMENT. THE VOCALS SHARE A FEELING OF EARLY JOAN JETT WHILE WITH THE RUNNAWAYS AND AT TIMES REMINDED ME OF CHRISTINA AMPHLETT AND DIVNYLS,  MODERN DAY. LISA JEAN HAS A HARDER EDGED SOUND THAT IS BLISTERING AND EXPLOSIVE THROUGHOUT THIS ALBUM. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED OSSEUS” HAS A SOUND OF MYSTERY AND THE VOCALS BRING IN THE CLEAR VOCALS OF LISA JEAN AND THE SONG HAS A SOUND THAT ALLOWS YOU TO CLEARLY HEAR THE SOUND OF THE THIRSTY GENRE OF TRUE METAL MUSIC. AS I LISTENED THE MUSIC GREW ON ME AND MY EARS WERE ABLE TO RECOMPOSE THEMSELVES AND HEAR THE TRUE TALENT OF THE BAND. “MASOCHIST” SHARES THE SAME SOUND AND HEAR THE MESSAGE THAT IS BEING SENT THROUGH THE ROUGHNESS OF THE EDGY SOUNDING ROCK SYMPHONIES BEING HEARD THROUGHOUT THE ALBUM. “FLOODWATERS” IS A SONG THAT CARRIES A SOUND THAT ALLOWS TO HEAR A ALMOST SIMPLISTIC APPROACH TO THEIR MUSICAL REPERTOIRE BUT REMAINS HEAVY AND ENJOYABLE. “THE HOSTAGE” IS ANOTHER SONG THAT THE BAND ALICE SWEET ALICE IS VERY CONSISTENT AND ALLOWS YOU TO HEAR WHO THEY ARE AS A BAND, UTILZING ALL MUSIC SOUNDS AND A TOTAL VARIETY OF INSTRUMENTATION THAT CARRIES AND REMARKABLE SOUND THAT REALLY WAS ENJOYED. “WEDNESDAY’S CHILD” THE BAND HAS A GREAT SOUND THAT EVOLVES FROM AN HEAVY TO A TRUE MUSIC CONTENDER IN THEIR GENRE AND THE MIX OF LISA JEAN AND THE BAND KEEPS THE COHISIVENESS TOGETHER AND THE MIX OF THE VIOLIN MAKES AND AN AMAZING SOUND WOVEN IN BETWEEN THE LAYERS OF ROCK MAKE A DISTINCTIVE AND GOOD SOUND THAT DERSERVES TO BE HEARD. “SUCKER” PICKS UP THE PACE AND ADD BACK IN THE ALMOST HAUNTINGLY SOUND THAT MAKES THIS BAND DIFFERENT THAN THE REST AND MAKES YOU WANT MORE. “SMILE” ANOTHER SONG THAT BRINGS IN A UNIQUE AND SOUND WHO REALLY DEFINES THE BAND “ALICE SWEET ALICE’ THEIR SOUND IS UNMATCHED AND HAS A SOUND THAT IS PUNKISH AT TIMES, AND OTHER FULL OUT METAL AND DEEP AND ALL THE WHILE A LITTLE AINGST,  ADD THAT SMOOTHNESS THAT KEEPS THE ROUGH EDGES A LITTLE SMOOTHER FOR ONES EARS. ALL IN ALL THE MUSIC HAS A SUPERBLY AND UNIQUE FLAVOR THAT ALLOWS IT’S TEETH TO SINK IN AND NOT BE FORGOTTEN. I THANK THE BAND ALICE SWEET ALICE & THEIR TREMENDOUS TALENT AND SHARING IT WITH ME.

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.
