young lust'Right In The Thick Of It All' starts off with the rock steady beat and a sound that's as big as a stadium, with Stevie Pierce's guitar chug adding to the grandness of it all before dropping in with an American influenced vocal that totally fits the direction Young Lust are heading.  


“Think big!” It's exactly where this lead track is coming from. The sound is huge and whilst these boys might be British the roots of this here hard rock is very much soaked in 100% proof American sleaze (of the sunset strip variety), there might just be a little Tigertailz going on in the sound too. 


'I Can't Give You' is up next and I’m expecting to get more bluster and bombast but what I actually get is a power ballad.  In classic power balladry fashion it builds and builds towards that epic chorus with harmonious backing vocals. This'll get those lighters raised aloft in venues and it feels a little like the kind of tune the Scorpions made millions out of if I'm honest. The arrangement and lead guitar breaks tick all the power ballad boxes for sure and it’s a song that will be loved by many no question.  


To finish off this brief EP we have the riff - tastic 'Let It Go' that will offer anglophiles a ray of light in the fight to find the sleaze front-runners for 2013. I can't help but reference a modern day LA Guns in the style of music but that's the ballpark we're in people. There’s plenty of fine musicianship going on here and well thought out arrangements.


If you're looking for hard and heavy and you like to indulge in a bit of classic sleaze rock then Young Lust might be right up (or down) your alley.
