SANCHEZ – Run The Streets
Even with all of the buzz surrounding Scandinavia’s melodic hard rock/ glam revival, not all bands deserve your attention and hard earned money. Case in point – this four piece from Sweden. “Run The Streets” has the looseness of early Faster Pussycat with execution worse than teenagers first writing material in their parents basement. “We Got Your Love” contains a chorus that repeats itself a minimum of 30 times in three minutes and five seconds, and vocalist Jose Sanchez doesn’t have the range to pull off the higher parts, sounding like a whiny petulant child.
I don’t believe everything in this movement has to be slick and over-produced. Current efforts from Whitesnake and Mr. Big prove that you don’t need million dollar productions to entertain and keep fan interest. However Sanchez fail to excite, these 10 songs bored me to tears and they really need to rethink their execution as I felt like running for this hills.
