Review: Guitardogs - Dog Years

Guitardogs - Dog Years
2007, House Sound Records

Kintnersville, Pennsylvania’s Guitardogs hit the road in 2007 with one of the most exciting guitar-based classic rock albums of that year, Dog Years. Whether it's Blues, Rock, Country of even 1970's psychedelia, Guitardogs laid it all on the line. The guitar work is definitely the thing here. Songwriting otherwise is fair to average, and the vocals are sufficient throughout. Whether prosecuting Billy Gibbons style Texas Blues/Rock riffs (Long Goodbyes, All She Wrote, One Of Those Days, Paradise); Classic and Prog Rock (Anthem, Red Beans And Rice), lyric ballads (Foolish Pride, You Should Know By Now) or Floydian musical subversion (Suicide on 611), Guitardogs will have all the axe men and ladies out there reaching for their instrument and trying to catch on. The technical aspects of the album are brilliant, and Dog Years harkens back to a time when Rock N Roll was still King, and the guitar was his majesty's mighty scepter.

Rating: 3 Stars (Out of 5)
