BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS

ROCKSTEADY

2010-08-30

On their eighth CD this Colorado band pull out all the stops combining elements of pop, blues, reggae, and soul to provide a very enjoyable listen. The CD opens with the title track which is a very catchy and well crafted pop track with a small element of SKA. The track "Beautiful" is exactly that combing elements of R&B with a pinch of reggae. The track "Muhammad Ali" as you can imagine floats like a butterfly but stings like a bee. On the Howlin Wolf classic "Smokestack Lightnin" Big Head Todd dives deep into the blues and then follows it up with some 1970's sounding R&B on "I Hate It When Your Gone". The Rolling Stones cover "Beast Of Burden" would make both Jagger and Richards proud. This CD may not produce the hit single like their classic "Bittersweet" but is enjoyable from beginning to end.
