REVIEW: The Bones – Flash The Leather

Press_Cover_01The Bones – Flash The Leather
CD/LP 2015 People Like You Records

The Swedish punk rock and rollers from The Bones are back with a new album called ‘Flash The Leather’. Most of the 17 songs sound very catchy but I have the feeling that they more and more pushed the punk rock to the background. Focussing on a more mainstream Scandinavian styled rock sound, ‘Flash The Leather has some poppy melodies and ditto sing-alongs, some mainstream Swedish rock with an accent but also some powerful sleazy rock and roll madness making it a nice album. Nothing out of the extraordinary but it could be worse. 7,5,10
