SINISTER FOOTWEAR - BE ME YOU - DSFA
When Frankie Goes To Hollywood released its debut album ages ago, it
was my best estimate that the world had touched upon the threshold of
stupid and mundane band names. Wrong. Not to be outdone, the album
named Be Me You (working title: Are I She) is the follow-up to
the Dutch band's 1995 independent album Who Died And Made You God?
Comprised of loud hard rock riffs alongside interludes of alien
influences, the band jams with its influences and musters an
entertaining rocking album which manifests quite a lot of commercial
potential - even if that was probably not the band's intention. Those
looking for a modern hard rock album with lots of good hooks and melody
should give this some attention. - Ali "The Metallian"
