Velvet Star - Velvet Star

The Yorkshire terriers unleash a new 7-track EP pretty much continuing where last years 'Dirty Girl' EP left off.

The band are still playing their brand of ear piercing guitar solos and three chord slabs of old school rawk. They even do it pretty well. I still get the feeling that something is missing, but the passion stakes have been raised considerably with the band now sounding like they really mean it. Musically the entire EP is a little to generic for me, even though songs like '15 Minutes', 'Easy' and 'Binge' certainly do have their moments.

This EP see's Velvet Star moving in the right direction, they just have a little way to go before they get there.

Rating 8/10
