In this edition of Song Review, I decided to chose some more recent releases and then some older releases that release a relaxed and chill sound. Everyone on this review is making their debut on the Vinyl Boys website. This release has an excellent mix of alternative, rap, and just feel good jams. The two newest songs on this release are those from Dan + Shay and Niall Horan which were released this past Friday and are getting rated on their first impression to me.[Read more…]
The Driver Era, consisting of former Disney Channel star Ross Lynch and his brother Rocky Lynch, formed in early 2018 after the hiatus of their previous band, R5. The former Disney Channel star, Ross Lynch, formed R5 with his four other siblings. R5 amounted to 4 songs being placed in the Billboard Hot 100 and also having a top 10 hit in “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight” which is why it was a shock when R5 announced their hiatus. Ross Lynch and Ryder Lynch then decided to form a new band, The Driver Era, with a whole different sound that isn’t the usual pop radio hits that R5 put out. X came out in June of 2019 and was relatively successful. It wasn’t chart topping by any means, but received a good critic score. This album has been on nonstop repeat since I found it just last week and to fully get the feeling of the album, I recommend listening to it from start to finish, but also individual songs are good as well.[Read more…]

HARD LOVE is an album released in 2016 by the Christian rock band NEEDTOBREATHE. To me, it’s doesn’t have like the stereotypical worship sound to it. It’s got a kind of electronic/rock feel which I absolutely love. I’ve only been into the band for about two weeks and I can’t get enough of them. For me, it’s like just real music if that makes sense. This is a rating of the album in my opinion now, but the more I listen to it, it could change.[Read more…]
Mötley Crüe, the infamous party rockers and crazy men of rock, sure did live up to their name. Mötley Crüe started out as a club band composed of Nikki Sixx, bassist from previous band London; Mick Mars, lead guitar; Tommy Lee, drums; and Vince Neil on vocals. The band formed on the Sunset Strip in Los Angelos in the early 1980s. A few of their songs got minor radio play prior to the big release of Dr. Feelgood due to people thinking that they were a spawn of Satan. Yes, I am being serious, people thought that Mötley Crüe was working for Satan. Dr. Feelgood took off immediately following its release in 1989 at the peak of glam metal rock. The album is coming off of a tragic accident with Nikki Sixx, who had overdosed on heroine and pronounced dead for two minutes. Thankfully paramedics were able to revive him by using two adrenaline shots to the heart. Dr. Feelgood was the first and last album the band would do as a group till their return in 1996. The album tore the band apart due to Nikki Sixx demanding that everyone go “clean” from drugs and alcohol for the whole tour and album which didn’t go over well with Vince Neil in particular causing him to leave after this album in 1992.[Read more…]
