Review: Raven – The Rocker (Rock)

This review covers the heavy metal track Raven – The Rocker.

This track was released in 1994 on the album Glow.

The track starts off with some guitars. A drum kit comes in shortly after. The vocals make a non-lyrical appearance early on as well. From there, the vocals come in for a verse.

The vocals then take the track into the main chorus. It doesn’t take long before the vocals then take the track into the next verse. From there, the vocals take the track into the next main chorus.

From there, the vocals take the track into a verse. This is capped off with an instrumental section. The vocals do make a brief appearance, but then the track goes into a guitar solo.

After that, the vocals then repeat some of the lyrics from a previous verse. After that, the track hits a drum solo. The guitars and drum then lead the track out.

The first problem I have with the track is that the drum kit pretty much does its own thing. It doesn’t necessarily keep much of a beat until the instrumental sections towards the end of the track. Besides this, the drum kits are partially random and not really following much of a structure. This alone makes the track a messy one to listen to.

An additional problem I have with this track is that it more or less follows some pretty worn themes for the genre. It borders on cliche, but doesn’t quite cross it. So, the lyrics really don’t do much for the quality of the track.

On a more positive note, the vocals are alright and the guitars are decent enough in most parts.

Overall, this track is a bit of a flop. The drum kit is all over the map and the lyrics are very worn and border on cliche. While the guitars and lyrics are OK, it’s not really enough to save this track. A track to skip over.
