Year: 2012

Rate: 7,5

Review:
Trixter is back with a new offering.  Unlike most of their peers, however, their album is damn good.  Yep, I’ll say it and you can take it to the bank: Trixter have released the best album of their career with New Audio Machine.  In fact, it ain’t even close.  This sucker is total ‘80’s rock from the opening notes of “Drag Me Down” to the final note of a Skid Row song that was never released titled “Walk with a Stranger.”  Guitarist Steve Brown is playing like a guy in a band that is be given a second chance in life and the rest of the band are following his lead.

Just check out “Dirty Love” or “Ride” or “Tattoos & Misery.”  If ANY of these songs don’t get you cranking it up to 11, lighting a Marlboro Red and heading for the Mall then you’re dead inside.  Sure, we may be older and wiser but who doesn’t miss music that was made to crank up and be fun?  We all do, admit it, we all miss the 1980’s and the freedom, the wild nights and, of course, the music. 

Don’t be fooled that this is just an album that is a throwback to the past.  While it has the ‘80’s vibe this is a side of the band that has not been seen before.  Trixter has grown up and they realize that standing on stage and playing tunes is not something to be taken for granted.  In addition to the old school vibe is a bit of modern sounding rock – not so much that is seems forced but enough to where you will know it’s still 2012. 

My favourite ones: surely "Tattoos & Misery" and "Get On It"

Tracklist: 1. Drag Me Down; 02. Get On It; 03. Dirty Love; 04. Machine; 05. Live For The Day; 06. Ride; 07. Physical Attraction; 08. Tattoos & Misery; 09. The Coolest Thing; 10. Save Your Soul; 11. Walk With A Stranger; 12. Heart Of Steel (bonus acoustic track).
