Quireboys – Amazing Disgrace
Good ol’ Quireboys! Even though I haven’t been keeping track of their vast discography throughout the years, they sure are dependable boys. If you’re looking for old school rock music with a bar room piano, whiskey voice, a rock guitar and swinging rhythms, Quireboys will always give you a bit of what you fancy. Turn on “Amazing Disgrace” and you will find no surprises, but there are no surprises needed. This is classic rock in the same tradition the band has given ever since they emerged in the early 90’s .
So much for the sound. As for the songs, there’s nothing to complain about either. The pumping start “Original Black Eyed Son”, the magnificient title track, beautiful ballad “Eve of the Summertime”, laid back “California Blues”… They all strike the right note! Sure, I guess none of these tracks will go down in history, but they are all worth listening too. Overall, “Amazing Disgrace” contains everything you’d expect out of a Quireboys album. It’s a slice of good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll, and a great soundtrack for the summer parties of 2019!
