Broken Teeth - Guilty Pleasure

"Guilty Pleasure" is the second album from Austin, Texas' Broken Teeth. The band is comprised of former members of Dangerous Toys, Dirty Looks and Pariah. Vocalist Jason McMaster is well known from Dangerous Toys, Watchtower and for participating on various tribute albums. "Guilty Pleasure" takes the listener back to when Rock 'N' Roll was all about fun, having a good time swaying to three-chord Rock 'N' Roll. Rhino Bucket did this in the nineties and now its time for Broken Teeth to follow up on AC/DC's legacy of simple guitar based Rock N Roll.

The dynamic guitar duo of consisting of Broken Teeth's Malcolm Young counterpart Jared Tuten and lead guitarist Paul Lidel complement each other well - exemplified on the bump and grinding song Devil Money. It sounds like vintage AC/DC and Jason's vocals sound fantastic on the whole album. I am sure McMaster's vocals would have made Bon Scott proud.

The album highlight is the irresistible Hangin' By the Skin with great guitars, excellent backing vocals and a great melodic chorus. Even though its only the simple means of guitars, bass, drums you have to pay respect and credit Broken Teeth for doing this so well. Other favorites include the title track and High on Danger. This is just good time Hard Rock with a simple and direct approach that is so real and honest that you cannot help surrendering to Broken Teeth. The only standard song that slows down the party is the bluesy Second Hand. Broken Teeth hits the AC/DC sound perfectly and lyric references to AC/DC underlines the bands clear inspirations. On the title track, the backing vocals goes "Oi, Gulity Pleasure" just like the "Oi" in AC/DC's TNT. Furthermore Jason McMaster does a small spoken part on the ass kicking CrashLanding Affair, where he says he comes from downunder like AC/DC.

Broken Teeth really get this record swinging, swaggering and in your face. They have made a highly enjoyable album that would crank up a party everywhere. It is so obvious that these guys really love this style of music and it shows easily throughout the playing time of "Guilty Pleasure". Buy a case of Beer, a bottle of Whiskey plus Broken Teeth "Guilty Pleasure" and you have most of the remedies for party of the year.
