Reckless Love - Reckless Love

Finland’s RECKLESS LOVE exists for 8-9 years now, but this is their first full-length CD. The name and the cover artwork hide no secrets, right? The band deals with the hard/glam Rock/Metal side of music and what you’re going to listen in this 10-track release is polished yet sharp melodies riffs with not much new to say but definitely armoured with enough of a party mood.

Singer Olli was the replacement for Dave Lepard (committed suicide) in CRASHDIET and sung as H. Olliver Twisted in the influential NWOSGM band’s “The Unattractive Revolution” album in 2007. His distinct voice is a key factor in RECKELSS LOVE, too, since he focuses a lot in harmonies and melodies while he also pours some glam lumps here and there to justify the band’s diverse influence. Speaking of which: KISS, VAN HALEN, WARRANT, HANOI ROCKS and RATT are draft examples coming to mind, both in term of writing songs and guitar approach, to say the least. To be honest, I liked better the more moody songs this CD offers (like e.g. “Romance” and “Wild Touch”) where the guitar riffs shine, but the more Rock ‘n’ Roll ones are quite interesting too. Interesting? Well, let’s say ‘entertaining’ to be more precise regarding the CD’s general vibe.

As the album spins more and more I can come up with two extra comments: the sound of the band is a big bonus since it’s fat and clear, owing a lot to the Scandinavian trademark Hard Rock principals, but also is smartly based on the American ‘party Rock’ arena recipe. Mixed with the band’s multi-influence basis, the result is worth listening to if you’re a fan of the aforementioned bands or the likes of e.g. CRAZY LIXX or CRASDIET.

Don’t need to exaggerate no more: you can live without “Reckless Love” but you can also spend good time with it. “In the hair metal school tables turn and RECKLESS LOVE are the teachers. And the class will only be dismissed once thoroughly entertained” reads a quote in the Swedish band’s website. OK, quite some over-the-top saying but precise referring to the cruel intentions of these spray-clad outlaws.
