Dirty Penny: "Young & Reckless" Review

Modern Glam outfit Dirty Penny will release their second album Young & Reckless on September 17. I have to admit I was nervous that there would never be a follow-up to Take It Sleazy. Finally, new music - and it rocks!

Young & Reckless features these tracks:



1. If I Were You I'd Hate Me Too
2. In Luv With Insanity
3. LCS
4. On My Sleeve
5. Goin' Out In Style
6. Stand On My Own
7. Sleeping Dogs
8. Devil In Me
9. Dead At 16
10. Livin' Rock
11. Run To You
12. Crash & Burn
13. Wrecking Ball

I really like "If I Were You I'd Hate Me Too." This song happens to be the first single off Young & Reckless. Like Take It Sleazy, the new album is filled with great tracks. Honestly, I think they are all strong - meaning the wait for new music was worthwhile. Other tracks I especially enjoy are "Crash & Burn" and "Dead at 16." The latter has a fat bass line, making Dirty Penny's sound more evolved and mature.

Everyone knows that Dirty Penny cite Poison and Motley Crue as main influences - one look at the band and this is evident. It's even clearer, however, on Young & Reckless as the songwriting really draws from the Glam playbook - and no, that's not a bad thing. Dirty Penny are still able to cultivate their own sound by being true to their roots - something that isn't easily achieved in any genre. Young & Reckless is one of the best albums of 2009. Buy it.

Album release deate is in one week. I hope to get my hands on this very soon. I see they just added a bunch of northern tour dates, ofcourse nothing anywhere remotely near my area down South. Oh well. Here's to hoping I still have a shot at the private party via Facebook promotions. Love me some Dirty Penny!
