"Don't Be Afraid of Rock'n'Roll" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

CRUSH reminds us of early "Too Fast For Love" Motley Crue. Fun, raunchy, party rock that apologizes to no one. Damn, this is a fun record to listen to. We have to assume - since the CD didn't have a title on it - that this is CRUSH's "Don't Be Afraid of Rock'n'Roll" CD and it couldn't be better titled. This ten track CD (11 if you count the "hidden" track - I wouldn't) is a collection of classic pop-metal type tunes that could just ride the current return of guitar rock to the top of the charts. Although all the songs were kick-in-the-pants, plain and pure rock'n'roll, our favorites were the boogie-flavored "Feel For the Rhythm" and the (strangely enough) Ted Nugent-like "Touch Me Tonite." A great CD all around. 

CRUSH: Personnel: Mike, vocals; Jaysinn, bass; Tracy, guitars; Aaron, drums

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
