Imperial State Electric
All Through the Night
Company: Psychout Records
Release: 2016
Genre: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Published: 1/20/2017

Another great blend of rock and pop from the diverse Swedes
COMMENTS:
The Stockholm garage rockers just keep getting better. I know they have gained in popularity in Europe but no one's talking Stateside. It's a shame because this new ISE record has my favorite songs of 2016 on it --the title track that is so 60's pop and "Break it Down" is sort of a 70's country song that recalls Glen Campbell. "Get Off the Boo Hoo Train" is Rolling Stones-like while "Would You Lie" is that hybrid AOR thing. Just a damn fine band that can be played at the neighborhood pool party without getting the suspicious eyes. Non-metal parties condemn that deathcore playlist you're dying to crank. Stick with ISE and bridge that gap slowly.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Rolling Stones, Sweet
