The fourth album by STRONGBOW is their best so far. Ok, that's a phrase, but "Chained" is fast and relaxed, it's catchy and tough at the same time.
To summarize: the album has a lot of the smooth feeling of the bands that influenced them a lot such as SOCIAL D., THE GENERATORS or BOUNCING SOULS.
But don't get me wrong, this is not the next copy of a copy.
The band is keeping their own style, they do Street-Punk but they surprise the listener with their talent of putting in refreshing elements, such as female background-singers or mixing in uncommon instruments.
Try a dose of STRONGBOW! Layout was made by Pete MacPhee who also worked for bands such as DROPKICK MURPHYS.
