ELDORADO: "Antigravity Sound Machine"

Rating: RRR
Label: -Eldorado 2012
Review by Kimmo Toivonen

Spanish hard rockers Eldorado have put together their third album, and spared no expenses doing that. The album has been produced by Richard Chycki (Rush, Gotthard, Aerosmith) as was their previous one, and I have no doubt that this album could take them to the next league. Especially right now, when retro-rockers like Rival Sons are just about the hottest ticket in rock.

The band's style hasn't changed since the last album, they still play 70'ies flavoured hard rock along the likes of Rival Sons, Black Crowes and Tesla. Of course one can draw comparisons to the "originators" too, Zeppelin, Free and so on. If that's your kind of rock, you could just as well add one or maybe even two R's to the rating and head to the nearest record store right away, because Eldorado would definitely rock your boat. I've never been that much into this particular style of hard rock, hence the three R's only. Eldorado are a really talented and tight band, if they had more hooks and memorable melodies I would be probably praising them to high heaven.
