ADAM BOMB Boneyard Z Records (2004)

Adam Bomb has been around for many years, most notably playing on recent releases by both Led Zeppelin's John-Paul Jones and Hanoi Rocks' Michael Monroe. This CD would appear to be a collection of tracks spanning his solo career. Adam Bomb has played many gigs in the UK in the last 18 months and so this CD is a good introduction to his music.

The opening track, however, is a pointless cover of the 'Star Spangled Banner' which appears to have the sounds of war all over it. There are tracks that are musically good, but are let down by the vocals, for example 'The Beginning Of The End'.

There are tracks that have featured on Michael Monroe's last solo CD, i.e. 'Shattered Smile' and 'Life's A Bitch And Then You Live', which are both good songs that have been let down by the vocals once you have heard them sung by Michael Monroe himself and not the re-recorded version here. Track 6 onward have a very 80's feel to them, whether it be the Billy Idol like 'SST' or the Ratt like vocals of 'I'm On It'. There is some nice clean production on some of the tracks, while others sound dated. 'What In The World' and 'DWI On The Info Super Highway' are both big sounding, clean production numbers.

The final two tracks on this CD are both covers, the Stones' 'Its Only Rock 'n' Roll' which has a feel similar to Oasis and T-Rex, and T-Rex's 'Jeepster', which is suitably trashy and therefore suits Adam's vocals and guitar sound nicely.
