Imagine for a while Italian rock music in the 70′s were the driving force behind the rock movement back then. Forget bands like Hendrix, The Who or anyone you could possibly think about. THE SHOES would have been the band that everyone was trying to copy. In reality though, it’s 2011. Someone forgot to tell to THE SHOES that their sound is like in the 70's. Who's complaining though? If 70′s retro rock like Mountain, Free, or Bad Company is your cup of tea, keep reading. THE SHOES made their debut a few months back with this self titled disc put out by the mighty Italian rock label Go Down Records. The tunes on this debut are pretty damn solid. It’s full of heavy riffs that will have you rocking out like it’s the summer of 1974. Tracks like the opener “I Need To Show It”, “The G Man”, “Across the Street” or “The Cage”. Songs like “Waiting on the Web” and “Hang On” resemble songs by the mighty Led Zeppelin.”Rescue Me” and “I’m Bored” have a nice boogie to the track. It makes you want to dance. “Two Loves” closes out the album in a nice slow fashion that resembles more of a late 60′s rock track but a track certainly not out of place. In fact, I’d say it’s another track to show a bit of diversity in their music. You can certainly hear lots of 70′s influences as I mentioned. Blues rock is the primary sound but there’s other scattered through out. This is an awesome debut by a great up and coming band. Keep your eyes and ears peeled because I think we have a new driving force to the whole 70′s retro rock movement and it’s not coming from the US, UK or Sweden.
