The first comparison (and last?) is that the basic sound adheres to is early 80's Survivior. The tone is very much in the vein of 'Eye Of The Tiger', a glut of AOR anthems, with a midwest, American heartland feel.
For newcomers to Adrenalin and DC Drive, you cannot go wrong with this. For those expecting more of Adrenalin, there may be cause for concern. As a time capsule it's fascinating to hear the bands evolution from a bar room type set of rockers, into smooth melodic rockers, while retaining the homegrown midwest feel.
Not to be confused with the British band of the same name, The Look were a Detroit band formed in the late 70's playing in a radio rock come new wave style. This is their third and final album, and the swansong came with all sorts of issues, which unfortunately became toxic and terminal.
Out of the rusted steel, working class neighborhoods of the motor city, Detroit's Savage Grace came of age in the late 60's rock scene that gave the world Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, MC5, The Frost, Frijid Pink, Rare Earth and a hairy host of musicians and songwriters that made a permanent mark on music history.
