here it is , the good bad and ugly from the Rockarma album "Bring It!"

 

1. BADJUNE - good song to kick off the album with. I like the flow and feel of the song. reminds me a bit of AdrianGale meets Danger Danger.

 

2. BETWEEN YOU N ME - If I had to pick "the best" on the album this song would be it (as of right now). Great melody, great lyrics that just get stuck in your head. The vocals fit so perfect to this style it is scary. love the guitar work. This reminds me of what is so great about 80's AOR / Hardrock mix. I've listened to this so many times all I hear is Rockarma.

 

3. ALL 4 YOU - this really reminds me of what was really good about the band Slaughter. This has a nice Slaughter style feel to it, not their fly to the angels type ballad but more of the "gave me your heart" style of mid-tempo grooving song. continues with the really good start to the album. again vocals and guitar fit great.

 

4. GET ME OUTTA THIS HOLE - the first song I'm not crazy about on the album. about 2 minutes into the song it really takes off but then it is over. The song takes too long to hook me into it and is one of my least listen to songs so far. maybe it is a grower.

 

5. I KNOW - back to the standard of the first 3 songs. Great melody, nice vocals, good guitar. Very Catchy like the early Danger Danger or Firehouse albums. Their is a band on the tip of my tougue that sounds a lot like this song but I just can not place it right now and it is killing me.

 

6. MISSING YOU - starts out like a Stryper styled song then into pure melodic joy. This reminds me of something that would have been huge on MTv back in the day. would have made it on Dial Mtv along side of Every Rose, Heaven, I Remember You, Love Bites, Up All Night, Love Of A Lifetime...... I just love this song.

 

7. BRING IT - heavier, more driving straight up rock. Almost should have been the opening track on the cd. Reminds me a lot of AdrianGale styled rock. the only thing that distracts me is the vocals feel a bit out style with the song. what I mean is the rhythem feels like it needs a bit more of a grittier, bluesed up style of vocal to really make the track stand out.

 

8. HERE AFTER - Pete might kill me but I love this song and it has such a Trixter feel to it at times. love the acoustic guitar throughout the song. Nice power ballad. my daughter is dancing to it as I type these words.

 

9. FEELS LIKE I'M FALLIN - just a good as any other song on the disc. I was expecting it to start falling off by this time but am very well pleased with the quality of the songs at the end of the disc.

 

10. LETS GO - Wow, this remines me of AC/DC, X-Sinner and Idle Cure rolled up into one song. this is the vocal sound that would have made the song Bring It stand out for me.

 

11. THATS ALL - again, I was expecting a song that was a lot less by the end of the album but again am pleased with the quality of songs at the end of the album.

 

12. SAME OL' SONG - wow, getting into a Tora Tora style feel here again the vocals get a bit more dirty for this song that screams blues rock metal. Guitar work again is great.

 

my total point score for this album ? I'd have to give it a 93% out of 100. easy one of the top 5 rock albums I've bought this past year GREAT JOB to everyone who had a hand in this album from the players to the producers and the label and those who had the belief that people still crave this kind of music.

Just a thought here but maybe Kivel could update their site a little more often as I don't see any mention of Rockarma......I suppose I could always pick it up at NEH....

 

You need to go to the menue "CD orders". There at each line item you have various options and the first is the Rockarma.

 

But you are right, though, the most CD's on their main page can not be ordered anymore. <_<

66 Mustang's review is pretty much spot on for me as well. This cd got my full attention right from the opening riffs :beerbang: I really recommend it to anyone who likes Menudo, New Kids On The Block, Flock Of Seagulls, Milli Vanili and Hanson :nyanya:

I had a couple friends over Friday night and even though they are not big into music I decided to throw on the disc while we were enjoying some beers. They loved it! And if anyone is curious, Rockarma and beer go together nicely. :beerbang:

Think of Rockarma as kind of a blend of everything you love about Cliff Richards and CC Deville...

NEW BRING IT REVIEW!

 

Hey Folks....!

 

We are truckin along today and want to share a KICK ASS REVIEW! Now this review is "special" to us. As it didnt come from a website, a magazine , journalist etc etc etc. It came from a dude just like us!! Someone that pre ordered our cd during the holiday season, and waited with baited breath like lil Ralphie on christmas morning. In the end it seems we did not disappoint (or shoot his eye out) Heres Jim in VA review of ROCKARMA "Bring It!"

here it is , the good bad and ugly from the Rockarma album "Bring It!"

 

1. BADJUNE - good song to kick off the album with. I like the flow and feel of the song. reminds me a bit of AdrianGale meets Danger Danger.
