Backyard Babies - Tinnitus - 2005 - Liquor And Poker
Right off the bat is “Brand New Hate” which has a humorous tone about making enemies being a good thing. “Minus Celcius” and “Look At You” seemed to be among the most driving of the numbers on the CD. “The Clash” and “Friends” also impressed me and overall I had few criticisms of the music. I always liked high energy rock with that rougher edge. If you follow the bands like the ones referenced earlier then this is the kind of CD that could really appeal to you. The band is very good live and I was fortunate to catch them on a one night only show in my vicinity. It is energetic and fun and it makes listening to the CD all the more worth it. The four members of the band Nicke (vocals), Dregen (guitar), Peder (drums) and Johann (bass) make sure to give you a sensory explosion that you will not soon forget.
There is some other coolness involved with this release, as Liquor And Poker have included a bonus CD in the package. This CD is loaded with about 16 tracks of some of their artist lineup. The Backyard Babies CD has a fully loaded booklet with photos and lyrics (the type I always am able to enjoy since I love when they place time in a good booklet). This CD comes with the highest of recommendations and listen to this - You will not be worrying about needing older releases since the tracks on “Tinnitus” as far as some of the bands most popular tracks are from earlier releases. Not so much catch up to do that way which is always appealing with a band from Europe who just is coming out over here in the States.
