  • Being a long time fan of Electric Frankenstein, I was excited to get their new album and give it a listen. I was never expecting what they had in store for listeners on this, their newest release, The Buzz of 1000 Volts. This album comes with the best rock ní roll music you will hear in this day and time.

    The opening riff of "The Mess" gets the ball rolling in the right direction. Itís tight and hard. Itís got a great driving feel to it. You can feel the drive in the music. As soon as Steve Miller starts singing, the dam breaks open. You canít help but rock out to these great tunes.

    The guitar sound on this entire album is strong. As always, Sal Calzonieriís guitar playing is tight. Heís really a strong rhythm player. Lead guitarist, Carl Porcaro, lays down some smoking leads and ties it all together. Adding in Dan Calzonieri on bass and Rob Sefcik on drums, you are given some of the tightest rock music you will ever hear. Add this with the great rock vocals of Steve Miller and you have one of the front runners of the rock ní roll scene.

    There are plenty of great tunes cranked out on this album: A Mess, Dead On Beauty, NY Knights, Canít Let Go, and the CD only track, Cocaine Blues. This really is the best Electric Frankenstein album thus far. All their years of experience come through to produce the best rock ní roll album Iíve heard this year. Pick it up and enjoy the rock!
