Review of Adam West "Right On!" in - February 2002

Adam West "Right On!" (The Telegraph Company)
Rock in fifth gear, in the manner of Detroit forebearers like The Stooges and MC5, and more recent ass kickers like Lazy Cowgirls, Hellacopters, Gaza Strippers and The Hives. Vocalist Jake Starr sets the tone with his powerful roar - this is too heavy for pure punk, but too concise and swingin' (thanks to the deft rhythm section) for metal. Generally, the throttle is stuck on high, with numbers like "Fire in My Bones" and "C'mon and Bludgeon Me" passing by like Formula One racers. When the band downshifts, as on "Swagger", they are equally effective - the lead guitar work is exceptional. Fans of stoner rock (or old Zodiac Mindwarp records) who would like their ass kicked at a higher tempo may also find this cool.
