tommys.jpgTommy Clufetos (Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, The Dead Daisies) recently released this marvelous slab of vibrant, lively, no-frills hard rock that sounds as inspired as it does enthusiastic. Along with a hugely talented cast of friends including Eric Dover (Slash's Snakepit, Alice Cooper), Tommy tears through eleven self-penned compositions that lack neither hooks nor dynamics. Everything is warm, organic, and in your face, which means that absolutely nothing on this disc comes across as polished, touched up, or refined. "Beat Up by Rock N' Roll" basically sounds like a loud, raucous, and wildly entertaining LP from the 70s and I mean that in the best way possible. There is no originality or innovative thinking to this joyous excursion into raw rock ‘n' roll territory but there is passion in spades and I fucking love the honesty and atmosphere of it all.

"Beat Up by Rock N' Roll" is memorable hard rock that pays homage to the titans and greats of the 70s in style and listening to it fills me with energy and thoughts of losing my mind at a gig in some sweaty live venue somewhere. Invigorating, fresh-sounding stuff from one of the coolest drummers out there - that is what this is.
