Review: Concrete Blonde – Joey (Rock)

This review covers the alternative rock track Concrete Blonde – Joey.

This track was released in 1990 on the album Bloodletting.

The track starts with some guitar elements. This shortly follows with vocals. This builds up into the main chorus. This is capped off with a brief instrumental section.

The track then goes into the next verse with the vocals being much more soft. The vocals then increase in pitch as they build the track up into the main chorus. This is capped off with an instrumental section, then a guitar solo.

At this point, the vocals then rejoin the track as they build up to the main chorus. This is capped off with a semi-instrumental section which leads the track out.

One thing this track has going for it is the fact that the vocals are varied nicely. This is good considering there really isn’t anything in the way of backup vocals.

The downside is that the lyrics are touching on a fairly cliche topic.

On a more positive note, the guitars are pretty decent. They do add a certain degree of quality to the overall track.

Overall, this is a decent track. While the vocals are varied, the themes in the lyrics are a bit on the cliche side. The guitar work is pretty decent, though. So, an overall decent track, but nothing too exciting.

Score
7/10
