Fueled by wicked guitar riffs, overdriven rhythms, and some of the scratchiest vocals man will ever hear, The Evil Powers Of Rock n' Roll is a classic example of power rock. After releasing the country-laden album, Must've Been High, people thought The Supersuckers were on their way to a new style of music and an escape from their signature rock....Well, all those people are way wrong, and I'd say it's safe to say they're happy about it. This band is talented in so many ways, they can play multiple types of music, they perform with pure energy that is unsurpassed, and they never once for a moment come off as anything other than a great band. If you're looking for a complete aural assault, pick this album up, make a metal fist, and get ready to go wild.
The album opens with the title track, "The Evil Powers of Rock n' Roll." This gets to party rolling. This is a definite drunken party album. The rock is hard, the roll is tight, and everyone will be able to enjoy themselves with it.
There are a lot of quality tracks on this album that keep you rocking out, but there are few that give you a break to catch your breath. These as well are quality songs. "Dirt Roads, Dead Ends, And Dust" comes with a more relaxed feel, but relaxed for The Supersuckers isn't exactly relaxed for most people.
This album is available from most anyplace you look, and I must say, it's something worth picking up. I loved this album through it's entirety. It is a quality release with no real downside. Pick it up.
