The fourth full-length album by the Swiss Hard Rock band.
Imagine that Nazareth's singer joins AC/DC... It's really that simple.
This Swiss quintet has always had the talent. Without a doubt, this is the band's finest effort to date. Whereas some of Sideburn's older material was often plodding and predictable, on this CD it seems like someone has lighten a fire under their ass. The band has gathered newfound energy and excitement that translates through the music, adding a breath of fresh air to a sound that has been played to death.
"Gimme The Way", "Cherry Red", "Ghost Of 1980" and "Wild Boy" have to rank up there as the band's best material. All four of those songs, and many others on this album, are just straight-ahead rockers - nothing more and nothing less. Sideburn even ventures into guitar-oriented Southern Rock in places such as "Stand Your Ground" and to a lesser extent "Down And Dirty" (which has harmonica battling the guitars).
The entire CD is based around the guitar, and the rhythm guitar work makes this album succeed in the same way it has worked for AC/DC repeatedly. Plus the guys don't really slow things down as they just put their boots to the ground and deliver working-man's Rock 'n' Roll!
With "Cherry Red", Sideburn's fourth studio album, these guys have hit gold! It may have taken awhile, but now the band could easily share the stage with similar bands such as Rose Tattoo and Nazareth without looking out of place. Cherry Red may go down as the best Pub Rock! Your leg will get sore from tapping your foot to this disc!!
Enhanced CD features video clip "Gimme The Way".
