Is it dynamite...or is it a disappointment? Click on the link below to check out my review of De La Cruz: "Street Level" over on Hardrock Haven:

The band takes aim at that '80s melodic-sleaze rock sound and comes close to nailing it, but an over-reliance on repetitious, one-line choruses hamstrings this one into the "good" rather than "great" category.

...and another one says this. Such a shame, this could have been one of the best 80s-sounding Hard Rock albums for years, but they blew it with the choruses! It's a really good album and will probably in my top ten for 2013 come the end of the year. However, it could have been an absolute classic, but for the lack of imagination with the choruses. :doh:

Argggg.....dang ImportCDs.com, get my backordered CD and ship it already! :rant:

 

I shouldn't complain, they have decent prices and did answer my email pretty quickly to explain why it has not shipped.

"Band:Roxxi Catalano (lead vocals)"

 

Is that how his name is really listed on the album, or is that a typo in the review?

Not sure how it's listed on the CD itself. I was provided a promo from Frontiers Records with no band information. I pulled the band member names off their Facebook Page.

His name is listed like that and that's his actual name by the way. Must've changed it or he had really cool parents
