Crazy Lixx nearly threw away all the good work they’d done with their first two albums with the release of #3, Riot Avenue. The rawer, more restrained direction was a big step backwards after the glorious New Religion and the impressive debut Loud Minority.
Opting for a self-titled moniker, album number 4 thankfully sees the band recapture everything that fans loved about the first two records.
 
This is the logical follow-up to New Religion, we can just forget about Riot Avenue now!
Changing the lineup slightly sees new bassist Jens Sjöholm join and the return of original drummer Joél Cirera.
The energy, the pomp, the big guitars, the screaming vocals and the anthemic songs are all back.
 
Kicking off with the pounding of Hell Raising Women; through the blazing Sound Of The Loud Minority and the passionate pleas of Outlaw; to the commercial hit Girls Of The 80s; Crazy Lixx are back!
The feel good pomp rocker I Missed The Mark has a huge chorus while Call To Action is about as catchy as the band has been able to deliver to date.
Heroes Are Forgiven isn’t far behind and the album finishes on a high with one of the groups fastest rockers yet in Wrecking Ball Crew.
 

Welcome back to the real Crazy Lixx. No hesitation in recommending this to any fan of the first two records and those that love that big, loud, old-school approach with contemporary production to make it slick and modern.
