CD Reviews

Rock the way it should be
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Push, the hard-rock quartet from Copenhagen, Denmark, entered the melodic rock chart at number seven. With that kind of buzz, why not give it a listen? Lead vocalist Martie Peters, a very charismatic singer, has a raspy voice that is somewhat similar to pop-rock stars Rod Stewart and Bryan Adams. In the first minute of Push's new album, Shaken, Not Stirred, Peters is in top form as he pours on the sentiment with "Never Again," a song about letting love go. The lamented love ballad "Alone" is the single that should be a home run. It's a song that could break hearts throughout radio stations all over the world. "Almost Pornographic," a nice tongue-in-cheek rocker with a cool chorus, leads into the catchy, poppy hooks of "The Only One," a song about finding your better half. "Ship Comes In," another catchy rocker about moving on to bigger and better things, puts the wind in your sails with a strong melodic chorus. Obviously, Peters' homage to Rod Stewart is evident here with a remake of "Guess I'll Always Love You." Another tender ballad follows with "Need You Here," a great acoustic track that shares some of the same sentiment as "Alone." Rounding out the album are the title track, "Shaken, Not Stirred," a sleazy ditty that builds a strong groove, and "Casanova," a title that says it all. Ending this hidden treasure of an album is the third ballad in a trilogy of hits "Those Were The Days," a track that rings true to a time when melodic rock songs took that constant theme of depression away, a theme that is an obvious threat today."
