Background
This album is the second effort from Swedish band Bad Radiator. I missed reviewing this album back in 2014, when it was first released. I have since picked this up on CD thanks to Michael Lundgren, the lead singer of the band, so I did say to him that I would write something about it since I have done the other two. Completing the set, so to speak. As written about previously, this band are quite unusual from a musical perspective, because they can play just about any type of style going. You'll either love these guys or will be frustrated because they can't settle on one dominant style.


The Songs
I don't care, these guys can play the phone book in Main Street and I'd be happy. 'Tell Me What You Want' is a cranky tune, a mosty guitar rocker with some hot leads to boot. This band can do Stage Dolls easily enough, so too fellow Norwegians Stoneflower, both bands who rate high on my excitometer. BR cover these guys without hesitation. Listen to 'Don't Need The Money'. 'What Are We Fighting For' is a west coast groover, with a hip organ presence in the mix. 'My House Is On Fire' prowls from the outset, the pulsing bass keep things understated, though you'll be wondering where the pyromaniac is! 'Don't Know Which War To Fight' has some deep lines etched within, and it's this style of music which keeps me coming back for more. The slow tempo continues for the grinding 'Can't Let Go', while the title track 'Shanghai' just has to be one of the lush songs I've heard in the past few years. I always go back to this one for a bit of RnR. Love it. The wurlitzer styled keys makes its presence felt on 'Your Love'. Not quite Supertramp.. perhaps better! BR hit the ballads courtesy of 'Do You Remember', cruisy and lush as can be expected. The last two tracks also head into laid-back territory: 'Is It Too Late To Say I'm Sorry' and 'I've Had Enough' wind it down, keeping things restrained and bottled.


In Summary
This is a band well worth supporting. You could do what I did late last year, by contacting the band and buying all three of their CDs in one go. A good investment I reckon. [word count 385]
