Stevie Klasson - Don't Shoot The Messenger
Stevie Klasson….A name that is supposedly a household name in the rock community, though I have never heard of him. That´s not strange, because Stevie has played in bands like Hanoi Rocks, Diamond Dogs etc. Bands that I know by name, but have never heard a single note of.

The music of Stevie Klasson is easy to describe. It´s just (though just is not the right way to put it, regarding the quality of the delivered music) plain old rock ´n roll. With influences of bands ranging from the Rolling Stones to Tom Petty, Stevie Klasson is painting his own rock ´n roll picture. A picture that looks very familiar, but it’s also a picture that I´m fond of looking at.

I really like the songwriting skills Stevie is showing. A great variety in rock ´n roll songs is what he delivers. And the strange thing is, it never sounds fragmented! The CD is, despite the diverse songs, one coherent piece. A really big compliment, because there are nowadays not many musicians who can pull it off. A song like ‘Goin Mental’ is straight up rock ´n roll with no strings attached, while ‘Lucky’ has a beautiful bluesy feel to it.

There´s not much more I can say about this album, but that it´s one of the few albums I´ve reviewed that I actually listen to on a regular basis. I like this album a lot, but I can understand that not everybody will enjoy it, though if you´re into old school rock then this disc is for you!
