Crusaders Of Love - Take It Easy...But Take It LP
This follow-up to Crusaders of Love debut LP that came out on Douchemaster is stellar. Now calling the label FDH home, this French band has managed to improve on their debut. One thing you can say about Crusaders of Love is their attention to hooks. They certainly don't play a million miles an hour like some of their brethren, but manage to lure you into their songs and instantly have you nodding your head or tapping your toe. It's a gift.
If I were to make a comparison, I would say that Crusaders Of Love share quite a few similarities with the equally awesome Sonic Avenues. While Sonic Avenues does play with a bit more energy and intensity, the melodies and especially the production on the vocals between the 2 bands are extremely similar. I can't say enough good things about this album, but I will say 1 bad thing. I think the album cover is kind of goofy and I hope it doesn't deter anyone from checking out this record.
