Terrible - Waste of your life and time.
Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style.
Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings
is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a
qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being
technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.
Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent
broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big
financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually
adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to
keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band,
label, management, promoter, etc.
The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
Chicago's Romantic Rebel are a female fronted hard rock act in the vein of Sister Sin and Hardcore Superstar. This debut record has created quite a buzz, most notably Revolver magazine naming it album of the week. The stellar production was handled by Ulrich Wild (Deftones, Breaking Benjamin) and recorded in Los Angeles. While some acts in this roistering genre appear smarmy, this group possesses an appreciable amount of style and polish. The end result is a debut worth its weight. Smart, sexy and addictive, Romantic Rebel is a resounding reminder that rock and roll will never die.
