First of all, I will have to admit that this particular genre was never my cup of tea. There was something in the sound that always got on my nerves. Therefore, I will approach this record like someone who’s into this genre. This release arrived at our headquarters about two weeks ago, alongside some exceptional releases I wrote about before. Somehow I avoided any contact with this material, but when I put this CD into the player and gave it a thorough listen, I realized these guys know how to shred. It’s an album that will every die-hard glam rock fan would appreciate.
At first, I was baffled out who would on Earth play glam rock in the 21st century, but then again, there are many enthusiasts out there, and scene revivals are always in trend. Welcome To The Show is a debut full-length release by Classless Act. Alongside Better Noise Music, they heavily promoted this material on the web and social media with the Give It To Me, This Is For You, Time To Bleed, and Classless Act. These introductory singles sum up what Classless Act is all about, but the remainder of the album sounds good too. As soon as you press play, you’ll notice that the eighties and nineties glam rock music made a tremendous impact on these guys. You’ll hear many resemblances with the renowned greats such as Bon Jovi, Mr. Big, Van Halen, Whitesnake, Skid Row, Guns’n’Roses, and many others who even remotely messed with the glam rock genre.
Therefore, don’t be surprised if you hear experimentations with hard rock, hard’n’heavy, classic rock, etc. Besides being profoundly into old-school sonic maneuvers, Classless Act also incorporate some ideas usually hearable in contemporary music. The most significant thing about Welcome To The Show is that you’ll hear every vocal part, theme, melody, harmony, chord progression, solo, bassline, and rhythmic sequence due to the exceptional sound that meets all the trends in contemporary music production. Each composition has a perfect structure, clever arrangements, accentuations, and other decorations and enhancements that define catchy rock songs. It’s also good to mention there are guest appearances of Vince Neil of Motley Crue and Taylor Hawkins on a couple of numbers. There’s no doubt that Welcome To The Show will satisfy even the pickiest glam rock fans. Head to Better Noise Music for more information about ordering.
