Reviewer: Chris Kincaid

  • Music for hitting the road...top down...with the stereo cranked!



  • If you're looking for that album to sink your teeth into this summer look no further!

    CRAZY LIXX return with "New Religion" the follow up to their 2007 debut "Loud Minority". It picks up where Minority left off with tight radio gems that are laden with infectious Bon Jovi-like chrouses and rich Def Leppard styled harmonies.

    Following in the footsteps of fellow Swedish Hard Rockers such as CrashDiet and Vains of Jenna...in riding the 'New Wave of Swedish Sleaze'...CRAZY LIXX draws on 80's mainstays for inspiration. Their influences clearly reverberating through each song such as Poison with songs that speak of nothing but a good time.

    Kicking off with 'Rock and a Hard Place' a definite fist pumper it's followed by 'My Medicine' a song for working the pole with it's groove. Then there's the anthemic '21 Till I Die' to keep the Rock N Roll Train chugging along. While the pace slows down for the tender 'Blame it on Love', 'Children of the Cross' and the ballad 'What Of Our Love' it picks back up with 'The Witching Hour' which has a sweet tempo transition towards the end. Along with 'Lock Up Your Daughter' a song that drips with sleaze and sparkles with attitude the album finishes strong with the banjo crazy 'Desert Bloom' a rattlesnake shake kick that leads into 'Voodoo Woman' with it's great guitar lick that hooks you in from the get go.

    It's music for hitting the road...top down...with the stereo cranked!

    5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
    4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
    3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
    3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
    2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
    1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
    0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

    Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

    Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

    The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
