now this is right up my alley!!! finally, REAL rock 'n roll... the donnas are definately one of the best bands out there
now. there honestly isn't one song on this LP i don't like. every single track ROCKS my ass. songs about teenage lust, kickin
ass, and partying!
"you make me hot", checkin' it out", and especially "leather on leather" have the same sex appeal that made bands like
AC/DC so popular. there's also alot of songs about just partying in general, including the title track, "rock 'n' roll machine".
so many of the songs remind me of both the dolls and the ramones that i don't even know what to say about this album other
than just THAT. if youre a fan of either band, you'll like this album. it's nothing that hasn't been done before, but the
donnas do it so well.
i read an interview with them somewhere before where they aso listed KISS as a major influence (then again so have the
clash). and theyve also been compared to the cramps, although i can't see how.
look, just do yourself a favor. check out the donnas. they might not be very punk as far as looks go, but you can tell
they've grown up on the same bands as the rest of us. this isn't corporate rock, this is genuine TRASH. no overproduction,
great lyrics, and the attitude is definately there as well. so give em a try. you won't be disappointed.
