The Fabrockators: Party You Give Review

The Fabrockators debut album has some redeeming qualities to it and a few tracks that are worth a listen, however for the most part, this is an album that delivers simple rock with six of the ten records having a similar moderate tempo and style which makes the Party You Give lack variation and a creative flair.

The album kicks off with “Any Kinda Thrill,” a straightforward three chord guitar track, after which many of the tracks begin to sound the same. “Hot Rod” and “Moving North” have almost the exact same song structure, as do the two songs “Party You Give” and “Travelling.” Each track uses the similar guitar chords and style with often forgettable solos. The three songs that stand out from the rest of the tracks are “Lightening, Rain And Thunder,” a mellow track with a sweet melody, “The Sin,” which is the album’s heavy metal influenced track, and “Winter’s Coming,” a pleasant little song with a soothing sound accompanied with a cool and peaceful guitar solo fitting to the song exactly. The last track on the album is okay up until the point where the singer sings the lyrics: “I miss my dog, his name was Jack.” At which point I laughed, a lot.

Overall it’s not a particularly good album, which is a shame because I quite liked the singer’s southern country vocals and there are three songs on this album that are worth a listen. But in general, it’s just lacking and the album becomes a continuously ordinary and bland affair very quickly.

The Review: 6.5/10
