Review: Reckless Love – Spirit

Posted in Album Review, Music with tags , , , , , , on September 2, 2013 by Tickets There

img_54601No matter how much metal you’re into, you still need something anthematic for those Friday and Saturday nights. Vader and Deicide are great and all, but they won’t have your singling along with fists raised on the dance floor when the thirteenth Jägerbomb. No, in times like that you need to turn to something else and Reckless Love are increasingly becoming that band for yours truly.

Their third album, Spirit, hits shelves in the UK today and if you had any expectations about what the band was aiming for this time – you’re probably right on the nose. Spirit is chock full of anthems, hair-metal riffs, solos and great fun. Opening with the first single, ‘Night On Fire’, the album is set up for quality sing along fun, which wanes just a little bit on ‘Bad Lovin’. Not an awful song, but as Pierre said – probably should have stayed in Finnish. ‘I Love Heavy Metal’ pays homage to the classic Def Leppard Hysteria sound and tips its hat at just about every major band from the genre. Great tune and you know what? I love heavy metal too lads!

1277220_10150322447189960_1989641591_oFavourite Flavour’ is fast, chorus filled and fun before ‘Edge of Our Dreams’ goes further down that old pop rock ballad road. Not something that would light my fire, maybe it’ll light yours. Everything gets firmly back on track for the classic ‘Sex, Drugs and Reckless Love’. Great 80’s KISS guitar up front, smashing chorus; a wonderful little number from the boys.  ‘Dying to Live’ hints back at Mighty Leppard and ballad territory but avoids the overly poppy feel of ‘Edge of Our Dreams’. On repeat spins, the appeal only grows and you find yourself a cracking new RL tune to enjoy.

Here at TT we’re trying to move away from these song by song reviews so let’s cut through the red tape and say one thing – the second half of Spirit kicks ass! ‘Metal Ass’ is just brilliant for reasons that will become apparent when you hear it (damn heavy for RL), ‘Runaway Love’ is another attempt at pop ballad world and delivers another success for the band. Not a standout track, but enjoyable. The licked up ‘So Happy I Could Die’ is another winner before ‘Hot Rain’ stands up to become numero uno ballad of the album. For the first real time on Spirit the band deliver a soulful, passionate ballad and round Spirit off on a high.

Call them pop, call them wuss rock or a guilty pleasure, Reckless Love know how to write fun filled catchy tunes. If you’re too uptight, too serious or generally can’t acknowledge good fun music – then you need these guys more than anyone else. As for fans, Spirit is a winner. It’ll put a smile on your face, a beat in your heart and give you another reason to treat Reckless Love with some well earned respect.

Reckless Love Release ‘So Happy I Could Die’

Posted in Music, Music Video, New Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 23, 2013 by Tickets There

20130823-111825.jpgThe second single from their forthcoming album, Spirit, is here! Fans have been waiting with pained faces and bated breath for the follow-up to ‘Night On Fire’ and our favourite Finnish lads have delivered. ‘So Happy I Could Die’ is an excellent harder rock swagger than anything we’ve heard from the lads in a while. You can almost hear their Guns N’Roses era sound stream through as the song harks back to bad ass tunes like ‘Garden of Eden’, before propelling into one of their classic anthemic pop rock masterpieces.

Reckless Love are a band normally filed under guilty pleasures, but that’s not where they belong. We need more Reckless Love in our daily lives. Nightclubs, bars, bands, trains, planes and automobiles – everyone should be playing Reckless Love everywhere all the time. A phenomenal portal to fun, frolics and awesomeness. We need more Reckless Love and less everything else.

Spirit will see its official; release on August 30th. It’s the bands third album and currently shaping up to be their best! Dearest RL and DME, please find a way to return to Ireland this year. We need ye!

Reckless Love Announce New Album Details and Release Date

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , on July 19, 2013 by Tickets There

IMG_5460[1]Oh yes! After winning the prestigious, Tickets There’s ‘Song of the Year’,  title in 2011 (‘Animal Attraction’) and providing the song of this summer (‘Night On Fire‘), Reckless Love have announced they are coming back with a bang this September with the release of their third album, Spirit.

The Finnish über glam rockers have remained semi-tight lipped about their next effort until last night and today when they announced the release date and also the art work for Spirit. The band have also confirmed some song titles and that their next single will be ‘So Happy I Could Die’ which is due for release later this year.

[Updated 23/07] Track listing has just been release.

1. Night On Fire
2. Bad Lovin’
3. I Love Heavy Metal
4. Favorite Flavor
5. Edge Of Our Dreams
6. Sex, Drugs & Reckless Love
7. Dying To Live
8. Metal Ass
9. Runaway Love
10. So Happy I Could Die
11. Hot Rain

The group have announced a U.K tour for later this yet but there are currently no Irish dates included. Tickets There is of course disgusted and will be moaning about it to the band on their Facebook page until this issue is resolved. Anyone who saw them play Crawdaddy in 2010 and Whelan’s in 2011 will understand.

Finally! Finnish glam metallers, Reckless Love, have released ‘Night On Fire’, the first single from their forthcoming, third album. Night on Fire takes no time whatsoever to warm up – it’s a fiery, fantastic piece of cock-pop-rock that displays their incredible knack for anthematic, sing along guitar laced music. The voodoo video can be seen below and is well worth several watches. Great tune for a happy/sunny Friday!

There’s no set release date for the, as of yet unnamed, third album, but the band have hinted it’ll see the light of day either late summer/early autumn. According to lead guitarist Pepe, the band already has 15 songs recorded so full steam ahead! It will follow 2011’s Animal Attraction. All hail Finland – All hail Reckless Love (Welcome back lads!)

579697_10150290025454960_1380642030_nFinnish anthem/hair metal masters, Reckless Love are ramping up for their third album (we think) by releasing a brand new single, Night on Fire’ next Friday, April 26th. The band who have put out two albums to date (2010’s self-titled debut and 2011’s Animal Attraction) have been very mysterious about their new music and this clip isn’t going to help explain much. Check it out and see if it tickles your fancy (naughty).

 

 

Tickets There: Song Of The Year: BOO YEAH!

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Music, Single Review, Special Features with tags , , , , , , on December 31, 2011 by Tickets There

I think it’s fair to say that Tickets There has not been the most prolific writer of 2011! Well 2012 will see a change to that and *gob smacked horror* we’re gonna start writing again AND! It’ll be the best of metal / rock and the odd other from about this fine green land of ours (Holland!)……ok, sorry (*real brackets commence*)(EIREbaby!). Before all that, we’re going to take one final attempt at basking in what feel is easily the most impressive, memorable, kick ass, slow bruiser of a 2011 tune. If we’d put the title in the subject line you’d be home by now! Don’t be afraid to try new things, variety is the problem child of life –some things you just can’t reach…a love for, Reckless Love is not one of those things.

Song of 2011, sad to say we haven’t listened to a lot of new stuff this year, but we couldn’t escape Reckless Love ‘Animal Attraction’! When we first heard it, Tickets There was not happy. Copious amounts of coffee, staff meetings, dialogs, ‘Live Reviews – this is an active link….to the post below’ back and forth, firings, hiring’s, dialog, ass holes, bleach, Guinness, Amber Leaf, the lovelies, Jägermeister redbull, vodka, coke-a, Jack Daniels (ish), Def Leppard, Alice, Cooper, Steel Panther, ASH, Thin Lizzy. Motley Crue and mother-f**king love for all things rock ‘n’ roll – Reckless have won out. TLC b*tch of a song. Merry Christmas, Santa came early. Reckless Love, Animal Attraction is the tune, stones engraved, sermon delivered; now rock the hell out and get down with this bad son of a loving she devil!
