CD Reviews

Kick-a** Rock-n-Roll from Siberia!
10/09/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard the Red Elvises in the film "Six-String Samurai," and became instantly addicted. This album is the only one of theirs I own (so far), and as such has an almost permanent place in my stereo. The Red Elvises blend the best elements of Surf rock, 50s Rock-n-roll, and Russian folk music to create a wonderfully twisted and toe-tapping sound! Their rendition of "Rock n' Roll Music" (by Chuck Berry) must be heard to be believed! Ditto their rearrangement of Brahms' "Hungarian Dance #5" -- a wonderful rock piece, now that they've gotten their hands on it. Zhenya Kolykhanov is a brilliant guitarist, Igor Yuzov has an amazing talent for writing wonderfully tongue-in-cheek lyrics, Avi Sills is a great rock drummer, and Oleg Bernov's base (the CD liner calls it a Base Guitar, but it looks like a giant balalika to me!) is the glue that holds it all together. Awesome!!!"
Great live

"I heard Red Elvis for the first time yesterday at a live concert. They performed songs from many different albums, and I couldn't decide which one to write my review on. But this one has love pipe, and that one was my fave. I just ordered "Better than Sex". They have lots of fun performing, jumping around the stage and asking the audience to scream "love pipe" or whatever song it is that they're singing. Their guitar skills are unbelievable to watch. If listening to Red Elvises' recorded music is only half the fun of seeing it live, five feet away from the performers, I'm content."
