Crazy Lixx – Forever Wild

6/10

Some people say that bands should try to make new stuff, break walls and take music forward. And there might be some truth to that. But also, it sure is nice with dependable bands who always give you what you want too. Crazy Lixx is one of those bands, and surely enough, “Forever Wild” is an album with few surprices, but still not too predictable to make it boring. With new hit orientated songs like “Break Out”, “Silent Thunder” and “It’s You”, they continue the old classic Crazy Lixx tradition as we know it with strength, quality, sweet melodies and rock ‘n’ roll. But also, with a song like “Eagle”, they try to do something a little bit more grande, and it really works and rises high and is easily the highlight of the album! I like that!

But overall, this is mostly things we’ve heard before. Still, there are no bad songs on this album either. In the end, Crazy Lixx keep on rock ‘n’ rolling without touching higher ground but still maintain their status as a very dependable act. Well, I can’t complain with that! Thumbs up for me. Even though more experiments like “Eagle” would be nice on the next album.
