Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Background
I remember giving this lot the thumbs up back in 2010 with their 'New Religion' album of the time. Swedish, glam, metal, melodic rock. Sorta like Finland's Reckless Love but with more tatts than a drunken sailor and an attitude as sour as Popeye without his daily intake of spinach. I really enjoyed that album, and was truly looking forward to this new one called 'Riot Avenue'. After reading up a few reviews, I was a little bit discouraged, but knowing how good 'New Religion' was, I had a feeling that I wasn't going to be disappointed. I'm glad I trusted my own instincts as 'Riot Avenue' keeps Crazy Lixx right up there in my A-List of Swedish glam rockers.


The Songs
Kicking off with 'WTF' which means.. l think you can pretty much guess.. But it also means 'Whiskey Tango Foxtrot' in the old callsign vernacular. And that's what these cats sing about, although the sexual innuendo is pretty obvious. I'm loving the kick ass romp through 'Young Blood', this is one band I'd love to see live if the tracks on this album are anything to go by... She's ripping me up.. ripping me up..'. The title track is a smokey thriller, like a milder version of 1989 era Skid Row. 'Fire It Up' does what the songtitle suggests, the catchy singalong nature of the tune enough to entice glamsters to set their cigarette lighters off! The melodic and southern rock tinged 'Downtown' is a stomper of sorts, you'll hear that through the chorus, the big backing gang-chant vocals add to the vibe. Crazy Lixx kick into high-gear with the AC/DC on steroids like 'In The Night', and ratchet up some steely riffs and crunchy back end for the impressive 'Church Of Rock'. The Lixx boyz plough the melodic road once more with the entertaining 'Heatseeker', with a load of stacked vocals. The Lixx take the pedal off the metal for the funtime romp 'Sweet Bad & Beautiful'. It's a party oriented tune with all the glam/sleeze elements in place. Getting near the end of the record, not a ballad in sight, and 'Be Gone' reinforces the 'no ballad' fly-zone, as this one races through in quick time. And just as I say that, 'Only The Dead Know' trumps my previous statement, a power ballad of melody and intensity, a great way to finish up.


In Summary
No two ways about it, Crazy Lixx deliver another entertaining set, and I'm one happy-chappy as a result. There is nothing wrong with this album whatsoever, and I'm glad they've returned better than ever. Ignore all crap reviews read elsewhere, the Lixx'sters are well worth the investment of time, listening and money. Again, buy with confidence, a great CD for sure!
