Ragdoll – Back To Zero
(Bad Reputation Records – 2016)
An Aussie based hard rock band who are fat, heavy and in your face and at times remind me of Nickelback but they use autotune on the lead vocals – a total no-no in my book – keep it real!
That aside ‘ Rewind Your Mind’ is an effect melodic number but too many of their songs have that generic sounding crunchy with the chug chug chug etc.
‘Dreaming Out Loud’ is a good number though as is ‘Love On The Run’ that has an 80’s feel to it’ or the funk of instrumental ‘Kungfoolery’.
Need their own style to be honest.
