Review of Adam West "Right On!" CD in Carbon 14 - June 2002
Adam West - "Right On!" CD (The Telegraph Company)
Holy shit, this record rocks! Just when I was afraid that Adam West would get swallowed up in all that "Guitar-God Rock" obscurity, they put out this piece o' wax and proved me dead wrong. Yeah, they've got that Thin Lizzy/Gluecifer dueling lead guitar thing going on, but unlike so many other bands who seem to think that's all it takes to rock, they went and did something utterly ingenious . . . drum roll please . . . they wrote good songs. From the skull-crushing fury of "C'mon and Bludgeon Me" and "Blueblood" to the down and dirty swing of "Swagger," these songs make me wanna move! Adam West has managed to hit that elusive sweet spot between "punk" and "rock," with enough polish to their performance to drive their point straight home, yet enough gaping rawness to make it hurt. Cool '60s biker chick booklet layout, too. Right on!
