Gypsy Roller “S/T”

Opening song “Rock’n’Roll Stroller” sets the mood right from the start: 70s glam rock à la Gary Glitter! Lead vocalist/Lyricist Gil Soliz teamed up with Allen Davis who co-wrote, produced and engineered this second album. Bowie‘s shadow also wanders around these songs, especially in “Goodbye To Sorrows.” The atmosphere sometimes gets close to the best of 90s Britpop (PULP, SUEDE…) on songs like “Lost In Some Old Melody”, or “I Can’t Live For Yesterdays.” The production is quite impressive when it comes to that 70s glam vibe we all love, just listen to the drums on “Gypsy Roller Theme”! Songs like “When She Comes Alive”, or “Simple Life” kinda modernize that good old glitter feel made of claps, reverb, hooks, and “yeahs!”, although you’ll still want to clap your hands and stomp your feet the old-school SLADE way! Just try and resist “Take It Back”! Well, Oscar Wilde once said “I can resist anything but temptation”…
Let’s hope this album will be as successful as GIUDA’s ones, and if you want to help with that, you can get the digisleeve CD version from French record label Alive and Kickin’. /Laurent C.
