4 stars What's purple and that hums?

An electric grape.

Or, maybe Wicked Minds' album, 'cause from start to finish it's purple-1974 baby, yeah! The color purple suits so well this album: Deep Purple influences, dawn of the day atmosphere and the art cover. It's true, even the song titles are evocating violet, purple and mauve!

Big fat Gibson Les Paul and Marshall stacks, macho 70's vocals, frenetic vintage drumming and tons of blistering Hammond, this album will satisfy the 8-track-player-in-your-El Camino-nostalgia in you guaranteed. But this album is not all testoterone and biker moustache, some soft rock with flute passages can be heard and a lot of space-age attitude also...but it's mostly pedal to the medal.

Although Black Bonzo did it before (and pretty well I might ad), this italian band is giving it all out, and I mean all out.

Give Wicked Minds a big round of applause for total commitment to make this album a great and hair- messing-loud-old-school-rock-fest.
