SANCHEZ: "Run The Streets"

Rating: 1/10

Label: 7Hard 2011

Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom

Blimey, these guys must surely be winners of the most ridiculous statement of the year so far. "Music that will get you laid, ever and over again", end quote. Sure, especially since you're now listening to a band with a moniker just as dodgy as your average (illegal) Mexican gardner in the states. It's like if you've named your U.S./British act "Smith" or "Jones" only that this particular Sanchez hails from Sweden?

However, the name really isn't such a big problem in comparison to the music, the arrangements, and the (lack of) melodies, not to mention the vocals. I almost fell off the chair when I first heard the backup vocals and harmonies!!! It's like they've brought in a bunch of tonedeaf drunks aka football hooligans directly off the street to record in the studio? What the smeg??? The lead vocals are slightly disturbing to say the least and the voice is about as interesting as watching wet paint dry. Utter-utter monotone nonsense.

It does make you wonder about the A&R representative at 7Hard Records. What the hell? a shaved monkey in a suit could do a lot better at coming up with fine acts to sign and promote (probably refering to myself here). And it actually reads in the press-release, "One of Sweden's finest are finally back with a brand new melodic rock and roll package", oh, it's just too silly. Nah, back to the drawing room for these guys and replace the A&R dude with Bubbles the chimpanzee a.s.a.p.
