"Im a pretty young guy but I love older music from the 70's and the 80's well the other day at work, I heard a song on sirius and I had to stop working to see what it was and it was "soul survive" by asphalt ballet. The song was stuck in my head for the rest of the day. when I got home I did some searching to try to find more music to sample of theirs, with no such luck I just went ahead and got the album used. I havent listened to it yet but if everything else is like that song then the album will be killer."

"I thought I'd never find this again being a band from the late 80's so I was psyched when I could get it on CD. Just as good as I remembered."
Bluesy, Southern hard rock

"One of the later bands to emerge from the Hollywood rock scene was Asphalt Ballet. The band released their self-titled debut album in 1992, just as the hair metal party was coming to a close. The band had a melodic hard rock sound with a slightly bluesy, slightly Southern edge, sort of like Skid Row meets Junkyard. A lot of that style came from vocalist Gary Jeffries and his southern fried vocals.
This is a totally rockin' album with plenty of swagger. If you're a fan of bands like Junkyard, Tangier, Royal Court of China, and Jetboy, you'll want to check this album out. It's nothing you haven't heard before, but it's still a solid, enjoyable rock & roll album.
Unfortunately the future wasn't too bright for Asphalt Ballet. They tried to adapt to the grunge sound with their 1993 follow-up album Pigs, but it didn't seem to please the fans or the band, whose members soon went their separate ways."
