Toseland – Cradle The Rage – CD Review4th March 2016
After the release of the incredible single ‘Puppet On a Chain’, Toseland unleash their debut album 11th March ‘Cradle The Rage’
Co-written with Toby Jepson of Little Angels this album is 100% feel good rock n roll.
A complete step up from their last album ‘Renegade’ that I wasn’t a fan of, where as soon as I put this record on & ‘Too Close To Call’ kicked in I was immediately hooked.
I could bang on about each track & the production which in my opinion, is brilliant. Mr Jepson has done a great job.
The title track which appears at the end of the record left my ears in a state of shock when it ended as I was half expecting a false ending but it’s a belter.
This is an album that doesn’t pull any punches. Even the track ‘We’ll Stop At Nothing’ which has a great lead intro before chilling out to a power ballad that Alter Bridge would be proud of, rocks like a 3 legged chair.
I had a huge grin on my face for the full 42 minutes of this recording.
This is the kind of album you will rock out to in the garden with a BBQ in the summer. It’s that kind of album & the lead single is a fair representation on what you get when you part with you hard-earned cash (or when you break into your kids piggie bank)
This will belt you around the mouth & then mouth you around the belt.
To support this album Toseland will be on tour with support coming from Colour Of Noise
