STREET LEGAL


"Thunderdome" (Frontiers; 2000)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

 

Street Legal is good solid guitar rock for fans of Ted Nugent and, even more so, Thin Lizzy. It's 80s hard rock with unashamedly hook-laden choruses, tons of blistering leads and think chunky riffs that are easy to sink your teeth into. And the occasional "ballad" makes its appearance as well.

The band themselves describes their music as "Motorhead meets the Eagles." Personally, I'd say that Motorhead is a little too heavy and the Eagles are a little too light. Instead, I'll go back to the Ted Nugent, Thin Lizzy comparison. Street Legal really sounds more like these bands with the occasional Night Ranger silliness slipping in. A bonus video of the track "Red Light District" is also included.

Those who think there's too much rage and not enough good times in music these days need look no further than Street Legal. 

Street Legal is: Bjorn Boge - vocals, bass; Ken Ingwersen - guitars; Bjorn Olav Bol Lauvdal - 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.
