"A Fistful of Rock & Roll Volume 3" (Tee Pee Records)
Reviewed by Paco
This compilation features one track each from 15 hard rock bands from
the US and Canada. Most of them are unsigned, a few are on small labels. It's definitely a mixed bag. The tracks from Stunt Men,
New American Mob and Fumes stand out as being pretty solid hard rock/metal songs that you
wouldn't mind listening to a few times. The rest is pretty generic metal, glamrock and Brit-punk that
just doesn't stand out very much. There are a couple, like Johnny Black & Assassins and ADZ that
have you reaching for the remote to make it stop.
As I listened to this, I kept thinking that with the hit-to-miss ratio of this CD, I'd do just as well by saving my lunch money and going to Napster or iTunes or something, and browsing my favorite genre (punk!) for unsigned and indie label bands.
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.
