I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Marvelous 3 - 2000 Ready Sex Go


MARVELOUS 3 - READY SEX GO (2000, ELEKTRA)
Butch Walker - All vocals, guitars, all additional instruments except where noted * Jayce - bass * Slug - drums

Background
I have to admit that I haven't come to terms with the change of rock over the past few years. My heart and listening tastes are still stuck firmly in the 80's and early 90's. There have been a few new comers who have been touted as contenders for opening up the market again for melodic rock. I've given them a listen but nothing really grabbed me. Until now. The Marvelous 3 feature's three members of the early 90's hard rock outfit Southgang. They've already released a couple of respected albums with 'Ready, Sex, Go' being the third and latest. I have to say RSG hit me with a sucker punch. I'd listened to a few soundbytes and decided to give it a go, but I wasn't prepared for the magnitude of it.

The Songs
One thing the guys haven't forgotten how to do is rock and create great melodies. Huge crunchy guitars and extremely catchy choruses are in abundance and that is understating it. To single out any one track wouldn't be fair, but there are a few that really hit you - such as 'Grant Park' with its massive, sing-a-long chorus, the David Bowie meets The Who rocker 'Radio Tokyo', and 'I'm Losing You' - a subtle chorus backed by a hard rocking riff. Within many of the tracks you'll find some great lead work by Butch, showing that he still enjoys flying over the fretboard.

In Summary
Although 'Ready, Sex, Go' has it's obvious modern pop aspects, there is more melodic rock on this album than on some of the 'true' melodic rock releases in the past couple of years. A very enjoyable album that shouldn't be missed.
