Album Review: Kyle Gass Band - Kyle Gass Band

About Kyle Gass you do not really need to waste words, or at least? At the latest when look at the cover of the white rock fan, that he is a half of the legendary duo „Tenacious D“ has to do. Together with Mike Bray, who Eingeheizt us powerful as Sasquatch in the last Tenacious D Show, John Konesky, who was already at the side project Trainwreck here, Jason Keene and Tim Spier Kyle has now ventured on an album without buddy Jack Black. If you listen to the debut album of Kyle Gass band for the first time is a conscious, How big is the influence of Kyle Gass must be in Tenacious D. Kyle Gass's skirt! That's not necessarily original or innovative, However, highly entertaining and makes between for the small Wohlfühler. He combines next casual classic rock with acoustic- or elektischer Klampfe, also slight Country-Influences and Blues-Items. A bit of AC / DC is just everywhere.

Erdigen, straight and loose Rock'n'Roll, das ist es, what the fan wants and what he gets. Of course, not with the famous comedy attitude his main band, but with a certain mischievous twinkle. Ten numbers, offer little new information about the evolution of rock music, but which are all animate least the snap of the fingers or foot paddles. Kyle Gass demonstrates a sense of the lightness of being. Evidence are the groovy opener „Manchild“, for casual „Bro Ho“ greets you in the rocking chair sitting and drinking cans of beer from the neighbors from the porch or making the streets the next town with his Pick Up uncertain („Road Chops“). „Dyin‘ Day“ is a significant „Lynyrd Skynyrd“-Populated list and „Our Job Is To Rock“ recalls at the beginning of „The Who“. The title should be taken literally, whether acoustic guitar or guitar, Skirt stays skirt and Kyle Gass Kyle Gass remains.

Kyle Gass Band - Dyin' Day

„Tremendous“ not shrink from classic rock solo and AC / DC circuit and strumming „Ram Damn Bunctious“ and „Getting The Band Back Together“ Simply recycle the best of all highway and popular songs always once again immersed in the rearview mirror a Harmonica Hillbilly and seasons the rippling songs with a bit more America. The Music the „Kyle Gass Band“ is full of clichés of American rock music and are delivered with wonderfully ironic lyrics. The album takes a with a 39-minute journey from carefully crafted songs, you want to hear over and over again. The combo white, as Rock'n'Roll works and impress with their high-back vocals, so you want to sing along. The debut disc combines in a wonderful way massive guitar solos, a Bass, stimulates foot-stomping rhythms and, to which you want to dance around playing air guitar in their underwear in the apartment.

As mentioned before, forces us Kyle Gass no new „Masterpiece“ on. What does that mean so much, that none of the numbers represented here outstripped the really big Tenacious D-Hits. Nevertheless, „Kyle Gass Band“ a pleasant from beginning to end to konsumierendes piece of entertainment with no apparent failures. Wherever you find yourself and whatever you are doing well just, whether driving, Cookout, Home pottering or homework it's an album, that's just fun and good humor. Nothing more, sometimes not less. Who is on slight but perfectly composed rock, the will of „Kyle Gass Band“ not be disappointed. It is especially terrific, that really every song is very catchy immediately and can be hummed smoothly after. Is for fans of classic rock here before a real pearl, that should not be missed under any circumstances. If you like a good mix of acoustic and electric guitars, , this album should bring definitely. The next soaked from Bourbon and cans of beer barbecue is determined and Hawaiian shirts can then again wear. Ausnahmsweise.
