Domino Media Group – 2012
Rock, Pop, Alternative, Stoner, Punk
Rated: ***

French alternative power rock outfit Slide On Venus has released their debut full length after an already entertaining series of three EP’s. Topless as the album is called features the same level of pop sensible alternative rock with that heavy and aggressive edge that some of us have come to love of bands such as Feeder, Biffy Clyro, Foo Fighters and perhaps Lostprophets. Catchy and melodic the four turn out hooks and riffs that sound highly American and have everything present to be featured on their airwaves. Which leaves the conclusion that it sometimes sounds a little too slick, too produced or a little too much of the favorite son in law coming for a Sunday visit. But that does not forgo the fact that there are some definite grade A tracks here that use the mainstream rock to it’s best potential and infuse as much combat ready vocals and rhythms as possible.
