"We Drink For Free" (Abstract; 2003)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

North Carolina's Leadfoot return with more rollicking, raucous rock'n'roll action with their latest endeavor, "We Drink For Free." 

Southern fried hard rock is what this quintet delivers, and - though the band may be best known as an offshoot of heavyweights COC - their own identity as a band that likes to party, drink, drug up and, most of all, rock out is quite evident. 

Songs like "Saturday Knight" and "Champion of Living" have the Alabama rock stomp built right in and sound kind of like a modern day Skynyrd. At other times, Leadfoot channels the ghosts of '70s hard rock on such tracks like the Thin Lizzy laced "Before It Was Over". 

Leadfoot go retro on your nu-metal ass, and don't be surprised if, while listening to this CD, you find yourself popping open a Pabst Blue Ribbon and joining the boys in a celebration of Dixie-style metal.

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.
