GRAND RESERVA: "Badlands" CD-single

Label: Tripaway 2010

Review by Kimmo Toivonen

Here's a one-track single from Swedish hard rockers Grand Reserva. They play the kind of "Tough Guy Rock" that usually gets a lot of airplay on Finnish rock radio stations, but I'm not convinced that this song will take them straight to the A-playlist or even the B one. It's a straightforward rocker, slightly hollering vocals รก la Volbeat and a not a lot of hooks. A rather cool guitar solo saves a little, but no... this doesn't make the cut. Hopefully they've got stronger songs on their album and this was just a misguided choice of a single.
