Recommended Posts

It has taken nearly 20 years... But today, KIX officially released their new CD.. "Rock Your Face Off".

 

I think most people who like the previous KIX releases will find that this fits in quite nicely with the rest. In my opinion this who CD has the signature KIX sound all over it... I love it.

 

Anyone else pick this one up..? Any opinions on the release..?

Well, I have listened to this 3 times in a row. And I am a tad disappointed.

 

It's really good....... in places.

 

Sounds like Kix.

 

But some of the songs just don't grab me at all. And some did instantly.

 

Full report coming soon.

My breakdown on the new KIX release Rock Your Face Off:

 

1. Wheels In Motion -- 7.5/10 -- solid but unspectacular opener. Not one of my favorites.

2. You're Gone -- 9/10 -- a very Cool Kids kind of vibe on this track. Love it.

3. Can't Stop The Show -- 8/10 -- a subtle punch at Donnie Purnell perhaps? Another good but not great track.

4. Rollin' In Honey -- 8.5/10 -- a new return to what KIX does best. Solid rocker in the Ac/Dc (Bon Scott) era. Love it.

5. Rock Your Face Off -- 7.5/10 -- not a favorite but an okay rocker. Dumb lyrics. This sounds like another early song from either the 1st or second discs.

6. All The Right Things -- 9.5/10 -- Fuck Yeah!! This I really fucking dig. Great KIX song. Really good rocker with a great chorus.

7. Dirty Girls -- 9/10 -- another scorcher. Very good rocker in the Midnite Dynamite vein. I love it!!! Great!!

8. Inside Outside Inn -- 9/10 -- a simple ballad but another good one and a nice change of pace. Very KIX.

9. Mean Miss Adventure -- 7.5/10 -- solid but not one of my favorites.

10. Love Me With Your Top Down -- 9/10 -- Hell Yeah!! That's the KIX I know of love. Very good track and first single.

11. Tail On The Wag -- 8/10 -- pretty solid rocker. Typical KIX song.

12. Rock & Roll Showdown -- 9/10 -- awesome finisher track and another song that is very "classic" sounding. Very good.

    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook
