Reviewed by Danny

First impression : Whitesnake meets Van Halen. I guess that the music style (guitars for Whitesnake) and the voice
of the singer (David Lee Roth) are responsible of this feeling. "Thunderdome" (first track) is really catchy and here the voice of the singer is impressive (on this track & 5th one "Wrong Side Of Town", the likeness to David Lee Roth is unbelievable). Second track, "Chasing The Rainbow", shows a different angle of their music : some groovy guitar part reminds me Creedence Clearwater Revival (end 60's). A mixture of the 70's and 80's will be the right definition to Street Legal's music style. Production is quiet good, although drums seems to be a little bit "trapped".
However, something is missing in this record : originality. I have this strange feeling to have already ear this music hundred times. Songs-writting is OK, but they are missing some magic moments, some killing choirs to bring the listener to higher levels, higher sky. A promising debut album.

Killing Songs :
Thunderdome, Powertool
