CD Reviews

WOW, Comrades, this is a great album.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Four Stars Plus! This album is a terrific follow-up to "I Wanna See You Bellydance" (the Band's best album so far - a solid 5 star album, and the only reason I only gave this album 4 stars). Their music is campy and eclectic, combining a variety of genres, including swing, ska, surf-punk, boogie-woogie, and roots rock. They put together great music, but don't take themselves too seriously while they do it.Three of the band's four members hail from Russia (hence the band's name). On this album, the band, which features a Bass Balalaika, is complemented by a host of guest musicians and some great brass instrumentation. The band's lead guitarist can keep up with just about anybody, and he plays a mean bottle-neck slide guitar. The opening track on this album "Red Lips, Red Eyes, Red Stockings," sets the tone for the album - playful and upbeat. "Hanky Panky Kind of Love" and "Closet Disco Dancer," which demonstrate the band's campier side, are light-hearted and just plain fun. "Joint Is Jumping" and "Mamasita" will definitely have you moving your feet in no time. Igor could pass for a Russian Tom Waits on "Strip Joint is Closed." All in all this is a great, fun album. And if you like the album - you should see these guys live - they are even better! They put on a great show. The balalaika alone is worth the price of admission."
More kick-ass rock 'n roll from Siberia!

"Red Elvises have outdone themselves once again on their latest CD, which contains more of their irresistable blend of Russian melody, swing, rock 'n roll and just plain fun. This reviewer's favorite cut is "Closet Disco Dancer," which is a real treat with the wonderfully humorous lyrics and addition of violins along with their usual guitars, drums and balalaika, but all of these songs are terrific, as are all three of their previous CDs. Red Elvises are multitalented vocalists and musicians, as this CD continues to prove. Buy it -- you'll dance, you'll laugh & have fun, you'll rock!"
Another great CD from a great Russian band!

"I recently received the new Red Elvises' CD "Better Than Sex". I must say it marks a new level of excellence for this already excellent band. This CD perfectly captures the energy that their live performances create. Songs like Igor's "Strip Joint is Closed" and Zhenya's "Jumping Cat Boogie" are great examples of how the Red Elvises mix their Russian culture, sense of humor, and the very popular Jazzy/Swing movement with some good old rock-and-roll. I thoroughly enjoyed this CD. Groovy!"
