Album review: BULLETBOYS – From Out Of The Skies

BULLETBOYS - From Out Of The Skies

Frontiers [Release date 23.03.18]

I’ll be honest, I was never a huge fan of the Bulletboys , sure they were on my radar but that was about as far as it got. So when I saw that long term fans of the band had made statements such as new album “From Out of The Skies” should have been a Marq Torien solo record, or even given a new band name, it made me want to take a listen. What I found was a well-crafted and more modern sounding Bulletboys album but one that was still worthy of the band’s name.

The album opens with a strong trio of songs in “Apocalypto”, “D-Evil” and title track “From Out of The Skies”, and the same can be said of tracks “What Cha Don’t” and “Sucker Punch”. The album also contains a couple of more acoustic numbers in “Losing End” and “Switchblade Butterfly”, not bad songs by any means but just not what I was expecting, as was also the case with the more  lightweight “Hi Fi Drive By” which has an almost Enuff Z Nuff feel to it.

“Once Upon A Time” closes the album, almost in Bon Jovi territory the song is a strong one to finish on. “From Out of The Skies” is a good album with great songs and whether you prefer the Bulletboys of old or, like me, are more of a casual listener, I’m sure you will find something here for you. ****
