> Well, I'm sure you're either laughing or just too intrigued to pass this
review up. Don't judge this album by the main definition of the word
"Trash", as their music has nothing in common with that! Honestly,
I can't remember how I was turned on to this band (surely wasn't the name),
but my best guess is that I found them on a compilation album. They
just happen to be another metal group which hails from northern Europe.
> To my knowledge, TRASH/Burnin' Rock is the band's second album, and certainly
their most successful. Every song is worth listening too, which is
(ideally) what I look for in records. It's very obvious their music
leans heavily on AC/DC's influence, while the lyrics seem reminiscent of
David Coverdale's Whitesnake. Add Trash to the long list of Scandinavian
artists that rock!
> Just about every song features the hard rockin' guitar riffs that AC/DC
is known for. Trash does add their own unique melodies and great
back-up vocals. The best song is titled "I Can't Get The One (I want...)",
and features a great mix of lyrics, tempo, and heavy guitars. I also
really like the album's only ballad, "Take My Flight", which features some
great vocals and keyboards to boot. Unfortunately, "Burnin' Rock"
is the newest release (1985) I've seen for Trash. Hopefully I can
find more some day...
> Imagine AC/DC mixed with Whitesnake, and that would create Trash!
Of course the band name refers to a state of mind, rather than their musical
abilities. Anyway, I doubt if you can find this album on vinyl or
CD, but it's certainly worth looking for. A side note: the pictures
below are of the CDR I made of the original vinyl release I own.
I've never seen Trash's albums on CD, but it's likely they were officially
available at some point. And NO -- I will NOT make you one!
