Review from cgcmpodcast.com (by Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall):

Back To The 80s

In a day that EPs are the thing to do, it’s easy to miss them.  They appear, and then poof! They’re gone. Fortunately, I found this one, and the cover caught my eye. As most of the readers know, I am a HUGE fan of that ’80s sound, and era, and this one seemed right in my wheelhouse.

A Brief Background

Born from the ashes of the group Miss December, The Rocket Queen gang is heavily influenced by the sounds of the ’80s & ’90s.  Hailing from Zaragoza, Spain, Dolly Glam (Vocals), Gabi Bultaco (Guitar), Gaby Gonzalez (Guitar) Arturo Millán (Bass) and Carmelo Echarri (Drums) first entered the studio in 2015 to record their first EP titled First Round. Since then, like many other bands, they went through some lineup changes and have continued to work in festivals and concerts with many well-known artists.

4 Tracks of ’80s Awesomeness

Back to the 80s is a four-track EP that has those sound bites that any fan of the genre craves.  Slick guitars, slamming drums, killer bass lines, and slick, harmonic vocals. The title track has it all. Female vocals could sit along with other female vocalists such as Lee Aaron and Lita Ford just to name a few.

“Little Treasures” follows the title track with leading drums and a great attack from duelling guitars. The production of this EP is worth a mention here as well!  Nothing seems to be buried and it’s very slick without being overdone.

Side Two

“Broken Heart” is another great track featuring some stellar guitar work, not to detract from the rest of the group, however. Aside from the riffs, and pinch harmonics, the drums are pounding here, and the vocals are above reproach. This very well could be a personal favourite from the EP.

Rounding out this EP is “Feel the Night”.  Yet another great ending to an EP. Energetic, and fist-pounding! This track is single-worthy representing everything that the band says they are influenced by. This track just oozes the ’80s and is a great way to end an EP leaving the listener wanting more!  Great job!

Psycho-Babble

One can only hope that this is a taste of a possible full-length album from Rocket Queen. If this is the sound that they have, then I do want more. However, knowing the industry, and how bands have to raise the money to record these days, I’m truly praying that this EP sells well, and creates a buzz to be able to raise those funds!  Until then, I’ll just sit, raise my fist in the air, and go Back To The 80s!

    • Debut is great! Hopefully the singer is good.
    • I agree the US is weathering the storm but you don't have much choice since many states have virus numbers that are surging due to social gatherings ... you've got to admit that if things had been handled better and there was leadership from the top instead of denial , the country would be much better off.... As for destroying statues...that shit pisses me off...there is no advantage in trying to erase history and the rioting and other destruction is outrageous and should have been dealt with harshly especially that bullshit in Seattle where people were allowed to take over several city blocks....and I would be willing to bet a small fortune that the people who vandalized the Frederick Douglass statue were of a 'pale persuasion' ...the only surprise is that it took them this long to do it...probably because they had a hard time finding a statue of a black man...  
    • Lady Lou - Accept
    • Looking forward to this one - really enjoyed the debut 
    • Get the fuck outta here - You made it happen! We are truly humbled that you made us reach the goal in just 52 hours, amazing!! Now we can start production!!!📀💿 Thank you so much!   Looks like it’s all go
    • From FB: GUEST STAR ANNOUNCEMENT We are thrilled to announce Rob Wylde of Midnite City will be contributing vocals on not one, but two tracks on Volume Two! One of the tracks, a first for the DPP, is a cover of an unreleased Paul Stanley track! Welcome to the DPP family Rob!  
    • Kamikaze Kings - The Law  Ragdoll  - Back To Zero  Cherry Grind - A Room With A View
    • Stirring the pot, eh? Candidly, despite Trump being somewhat non-existent on the leadership front when it comes to COVID-19, the country is actually weathering the storm. Yes, there are spikes in cases due to, *ahem* "social gatherings", but the scenario for these cases is vastly different from the onset. We are testing at a much greater rate now, the majority of cases appear to be asymptomatic, and death rates continue to decline. Businesses are (slowly) reopening, and people are getting to work. This was never going to be a "flip the switch and everything is back to normal" situation. It's going to take time. The bigger concern to me are the Antifa and BLM terrorists destroying the country and its history, while local and regional authorities stand by and let them do it. It's criminal... on both the part of the thugs, and the bureaucrats. When peaceful protest turned into destruction of public and private property, and danger to innocent civilians, that shit should have been nipped in the bud, but authorities were too concerned about how they would be perceived on Twitter, and now everyone's trying to figure out how to get shit back into the horse. Not to mention that these people are fucking stupid. Over the weekend they tore down the statue of Frederick Douglass... a black abolitionist who worked to end slavery. It just boggles the mind.
