SATOR - Under The Radar

It all started back in the early 80's somewhere in Sweden, where Sator first saw the light of day, and it's now, almost 30 years later where they come back with their latest release which is their 8th so far. What I liked in this album is the ability of the band to write songs that might sound simple and easy to get into, but are clever enough and have a way to stick into your mind. Their music is what Rock 'n' Roll is supposed to be, clear and straightforward, with enough melodies, and parts to sing along. There are enough excellent ideas here, and the band is doing a very good job, exploring them to the best possible way. The band is quite talented and this is obvious from the first to the last minute. Listening to tracks like Your Up Gets Me Down, or The Get Out, makes you wanna bang your head with the rhythm while drinking a couple of beers with friends. Their music is a perfect mixture of the groove of ACDC with the feeling of Ramones, all wrapped up into a more shinny package. The dual vocals work very good for the music, , while the rest of the band is also doing an excellent work as well. If you are looking for some straight Rock 'n' Roll, old fashioned enough, well performed and with no weak points, then look no further.
