Streets of Fire is making my impromptu day off really interesting. I’m getting little bits of Adam Lazarra in the vocals, (a little Sting and Jack Johnson too), just enough to keep my interest without turning me off. Being a big fan of Taking Back Sunday’s ‘Tell All Your Friends’, I hate rip offs, but Streets of Fire has their own brand of originality. They definitely have a secure hold on pop edged modern rock. All the good stuff, none of the fluffy bullshit.
Streets of Fire is another example of excellent songwriting, (they’re eclectic and all over the place without being chaotic), and a singer with a voice that keeps you interested the whole way through. Often times a bland singer can kill an awesome band: just look at Further Seems Forever’s third album, but these guys have a killer lineup. I’m loving their tones across the board. My hats off to their engineer, sounds like he/she really captured their sound. You want to listen to Streets of Fire.
