ROCK SUGAR Reimaginator
Indie Release
Rating: 10 out of 10
Reviewed by: Jen Conrad

OK, this is quite an innovative rock band! Lead vocalist Jess Harnell, guitarist/bassist, vocalist Chuck Duran and drummer/keyboardist/vocalist Alex Track have carved themselves a niche that no one can match...and perhaps on that no one has thought of before! I can tell you that when I heard about this band, and what they do I had a “WTF moment”! But when I checked them out, all that is replaced by a very profound “Holy Shit moment”! So let me try to describe...imagine some of your favorite 80s tunes being literally merged together into a new song...still with original lyrics, original melodies, but a whole new arrangement and a brand new vibe! For example, take “Enter Sandman” by Metallica and “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey. Don’t seem to go together? Think again...Rock Sugar takes the best of both tunes and seamlessly combines them into one kick-ass rock tune called “Don’t Stop the Sandman.” There are 13 of these babies on this album, and each is as imaginative as the previous! I’d also like to state for the record that Jess Harnell can sing to me any damn day of the week!!! His voice is PHENOMENAL! But Alex Track and Chuck Duran are equally as talented...they’re incredible musicians and near as I can tell, can play damn near anything! This is one of the most enjoyable albums from start to finish that I’ve heard in a long time! This album is a MUST HAVE for 80s music fans and for fans who dig awesome music and killer vocals! You’ve never heard your favorite 80s tunes sound like this! These boys have some serious talent and it shows throughout the entire album! Oh, PLEASE, PLEASE come play the east coast!!! For a totally new classic rock experience, check out Reimaginator! See if you can name all the tunes! Seriously great album...VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! Head over to www.rocksugarband.com and grab your copy. While you’re there, be sure to read the band bios...HILARIOUS!!!!

Note: Rock Sugar has added a bassist named Johnny Five (not to be confused with John 5) since the recording of this album. All I can say is...OH MY!!!
