CRAZY LIXX - Crazy Lixx (2014)

CRAZY LIXX - Crazy Lixx (2014) full

After some doubts with their previous album and aiming for a fresh start, Sweden's CRAZY LIXX returns with their fourth CD on Frontiers Records, simply self-titled. What has not changed is their melodic hard rock style. Reaching back into the depths of the '80s, the band taps that historic vein of sleaze party and hair metal.

While the quartet previous offer received largely ambivalent reviews, this album finds Crazy Lixx's returning to the raucous energy and bombastic sound of earlier recordings. Most every song here is loud, rumbling and razor sharp, especially in the latter half of the album. 
From "All Looks, No Hooks" to "Wrecking Ball Crew", Crazy Lixx blends twin guitar riffage, large vocal arrangements and a thick rhythm section to deliver some edgy, bright hard rock. One of the best songs is "Heroes Are Forever" from their out-of-print album and a staple in their live set.

On the front end, the vibe is similar, but with some songs have a more accessible groove, even some laid back parts. "Sound of the Loud", "Minority" and "Outlaw" have these melodic hard rock moments were the band backs off on the rowdiness. 
"Girls of the '80s" (I love this one) and especially "I Missed The Mark" are likely the most catchy and party songs, perfect for radio or arena play, thanks mostly to the melody and hooks in the refrain.
As always, and necessary for the genre, there's an abundance of sharp guitar solos that only add to the power and presentation of the songs. 

Crazy Lixx have the capability of becoming huge, and this record should help them get to where they deserve.
This self-titled is a solid and entertaining return to form for Crazy Lixx, plenty of energy and really catchy songs. Production is Big and potent, enhancing even more the strong sonic delivery.
STRONGLY Recommended.
