MAD MARGRITT New Sensation (Perris Records 2002)
A US band who have a sizeable local following and are getting more known
outside the US. A band in the classic style of Warrant, Poison, Dokken et
al. Poison fans will love ‘Nothing Can Keep Me Away’ which sounds very much
like 80’s era Poison. There is a short acoustic instrumental ‘Sensations
(Afterglow)’, which adds depth to the release although it’s slightly out of
place in the middle of the album. Party rock rears its head in the shape of
‘Someone to Love’ and AC/DC’s ‘TNT’ gets a run through as well.
In ballad mode the band excel as can be heard on ‘Can’t Get Over You’
which features some nice touches of keyboards, strings and percussion.
‘Believe’ is another sound ballad from the band.
Not a bad album featuring some strong ballads and Poison fans who hanker
for their earlier days will enjoy this album.
