Who Is Julian Angel?

German Julian Angel offers a mix of techno, glam and sleaze with  Choreography Sucks.  

The track listing looks like this:

 

 

 

Rock with a Slam
Sucker Punch
Sumthin' Huge
Teaser/Pleaser
Oh La La
Give the Radio Back
Bling Bling
This Is On You
Boob Boob Booty
Jump Jump
Strip Down Vegas
What Goes Up

Now you can already tell by the song titles that this isn't music for the snooty set. This is party music, and that's exactly what Julian Angel wanted to create. Most interesting is that Angel sings the tracks and recorded all the bass, guitar, and keyboard parts.

Other critics have said "This is the album Tommy Lee wished he recorded." I don't think I agree with that sentiment because Choreography Sucks is a completely different dance sound than what TLee is into these days. Still, for all the Prince vibe and big club sound, there are definite touches of Motley Crue and Poison, especially in the lyrics.

You can hear samples of Choreography Sucks at Julian Angel on Myspace
