So what do we (those who remember the Swiss Blitz fondly) expect from KROKUS in 2013? Well, as witnessed onstage in Germany last December, the reunited, triple guitar line-up can still play the classic, pre-MTV/sellout material, but is there anything new to rekindle old passions? This is NOT a metal record, but rather simple three-chord, repetitive chorus hard rock, in the same way that AC/DC isn’t really metal. To no one's surprise, as has been the case throughout KROKUS’ career, mid-tempo AC/DCisms abound on the twelve song Dirty Dynamite (stupid canine cover art!) and in the case of 'Go Baby, Go!' one of the fastest tunes in the bunch, the phrasing is too similar to well-worn Bon Scott/Angus Young penned lyrics. Following a dog growl, the opening ‘Hallelujah Rock n Roll’ is a fine kick off and the stripper strut of first single 'Rattlesnake Rumble' could earn a lot of money, on the catwalk of your local girlie emporium! After that initial trio, things go in one of two directions, all too similar, or a little weird. There's yet another cover tune, although The Beatles' pedestrian 'Help' is almost unrecognizable, when stretched to a crawl. In fact, the good old days (50s to early 70s) form the backbone of all the music, not all that surprising for guys who have already celebrated their sixtieth birthday. The aforementioned speedster features a Chuck Berry styled solo. With a tinge of piano, the title track channels The Black Crowes, via the Rolling Stones, while 'Yellow Mary' has a Rod Stewart/Small Faces feel. No kidding! A lively ‘Let The Good Time Roll’ is as much RHINO BUCKET as KROKUS and ‘Hardrocking Ma’ ends the dic on a good note. While ‘Better Than Sex’ portents to the days of ‘Smelly Nelly’ or ‘Mr. 69’, in truth, it needs some Viagra, rather limp. Sex, drugs & rock n roll has a new meaning after middle age.
