The Dead Daisies - Make Some Noise album review
The Dead Daisies show decent musicianship on third album, but are let down by a lack of killer songs and personality
It takes more than having a batch of high-class musicians to make a real band. The problem with the Dead Daisies is that while you have to admire the performances from those individuals involved, what they desperately need are killer songs. As the album glides on, every track comes and goes, but makes little lasting impact.
There are times when it all comes close to succeeding, though. Mainline begins with a seismic collision of riffs that draws from Aerosmith, Ted Nugent and Montrose, but the excitement dissipates because the song never really opens up to take advantage of the initial foundation.
