Hanoi Rocks - Fashion (EP) (CD)

Hanoi Rocks
Fashion (EP)
by Grigoris Chronis at 25 July 2007, 10:49 PM

Preceding the upcoming - lately announced as - Street Poetry album by this legendary Sleaze/Glam rockers, the Fashion MCD can as well act as the perfect 'teaser'. Having already reached No.1 at the official Finnish singles charts, the song seems to get rather well at other relevant charts/rankings, too. Let's see.
Twisted melody, a country-ish guitar work, beautiful vocals by Michael Monroe, sweet couple 'clean' guitars, an interesting sing-along chorus and a total of 218 seconds raising our appetite for more HANOI ROCKS stuff. I believe the album will have more bombastic tunes to select, even if Fashion is not a bad song at all. The guitar solo - wah wah rulez! - is short in duration and really 'radio friendly'. Need more? Ah, a mid-tempo song Fashion may be, of low profile in general.
Trouble Boys will not appear on the forthcoming Street Poetry CD, and I hope there's a good reason for this move since it's a rollercoaster sleazy cut including the 'classic' fast punk-y vibe of HANOI ROCKS (read somewhere it's a Dave Edmunds cover…). The promo video of Fashion is added to the tracklist, and I love to see this blond vagabond, Michael Monroe, acting luna. Last but not least, included in this MCD is a live take of the Boulevard Of Broken Dreams classic filmed at Helsinki in March 2007. What a cool tune…
Andy McCoy said, in regards to choosing Fashion as the first single: It was very easy to choose the first single. All the songs on the album are great single material. Fashion just happened to be the first song that we had ready. So, we really need to listen to the album asap. Gonna getcha!
