Dizzy Box Nine drops new album
So who is Dizzy Box Nine anyway? In my own words: Dizzy Box Nine composes richly-layered tunes about life, heartbreak, love, sacrifice, memories, joy, triumph, toil and other realities of humankind. Their cool lyrics and great performances reveal life’s extraordinary moments and via the band’s own vivid, personal adventures. The band is genuinely a diamond on the rough, a shout out to a specific era.
Their latest album “Electric Illusion” was recently released and without question delivers a mildly strong collection of music that really showcases all the powerful elements of Pop, punk with some early 60s Rock N' Roll throw in the midst. For guys like me, the more old school listener, “Good” will no doubt make a splash and prove to be very enjoyable. For the more mainstream crowd it will sound like it belongs in your personal or kids' college record collection. The song structures at times feel all over the place, but there's something to appreciate and get yourself lose to underneath. Vocals from Ludwig are pretty good considering the music playing on the background. This whole album starts in grand fashion with “Open Up To Me” and “Oh Yeah!” that pretty much sets the tone of what's to come next.
The rest of the tracks really helps making of this album a must-listen for those missing the days of Hot Topic and skat8boys (and girls) madness. Ludwig delivers raw melodic vocal emotions. He’s clearly a master at delivering vocal emotion (singer to listener). The music shows this is a band of substance and character.
All of the aforementioned culminate into a great album that has it’s share of magical moments but it’s mostly a good decade-classic package to be enjoyed by anyone who wants to know what good vintage pop punk is really all about.
