Loud Solution - Throwback

Loud Solution
by Brynn Kali StarDew at 30 January 2023, 12:28 AM

Loud Solutions album "ThrowBack" is ok musically but I think their aesthetic needs work. Honestly as for the album art I would have rather seen something original my five year old drew rather than this… No offense to EMKADE but I don’t know anyone using stuff like this since bands like Macintosh Plus used them on tracks like LISA FRANK 420/MODERN COMPUTER. I can definitely see cyberpunk 2077 here and so I have to criticize it in that it is just blatantly un-original. As for their music, they aren't bad musicians; Chilean group Loud Solution just seems a little mass produced to me. I’m at peace with this though, and their cheesy 80’s rock hair metal sound which sounds like a Def Leppard and Motley Crue meets Cyberpunk themed cover band.

The Intro track “These TImes” I can appreciate that I can at least understand what they are actually saying lyrically and it helps me through my morning workouts. Track number two “Face to Face” was actually a really solid Heavy Metal track The vocals by singer Boris Seeder seem to really come out here nicely. The Cyberpunk-Esque characters in their youtube video are cool… I guess I am just a sucker for the cyberpunk aesthetic. This doesn’t by any means make it original though. Track three “Amid my heart” was a beautiful and well composed love ballad but I’m not sure if this song really qualifies as Metal. The true metal fan is going to be really bored by songs like this.

The fourth song on the album “not provided” is definitely another early 80’s hair metal throwback no pun intended. Moving on to the fifth song “Love and Faith” I am really just at a loss for words, what can i say though it's another “throwback”. “City of Pride” I am not sure what this is a reference to the record label of proud Lion records? I can relate to this though as a proud Trans Woman, sometimes you have to “lead your pride”.  The guitar on the intro of track number seven “Time to say Goodbye” was actually pretty good. I can’t help but chuckle when I listen to this because the title reminds me of the song ‘time to say goodbye’ by Andrea Bocelli. As for the entire song. I really wasn’t very impressed but their musicianship was halfway decent.
As for the album title track “ThrowBack” it really had me feeling like I could probably do a Goku sized amount of pull ups and sit ups.

As for track number nine “Past Dark Nights” and track number ten “Don’t Come Back” it really seems like it would be a good intro for a Netflix show like Stranger Things or something involving anything which is an 80’s throwback.
