Album Review

Crash and Burn? Think Not!

I bought Crash and Burn when it first released and still have it. About a year ago I decided to purchase a new turntable and this album has been one of my favorite to play. Finally decided it was time to purchase it on Itunes so I can enjoy it on the go, at work, and at the gym. Timeless music...

If you’re here because of the song “Snortin’ Whiskey”, then buy the song. If you think the rest of the album might contain some additional butt-kickin’ rock and roll numbers, think again.

The “second side” of this album is nothing but 80’s pop-rock dominated entirely by Travers’ completely mediocre keyboard playing.

Buy Snortin’ Whiskey, buy Can’t be Right for a good follow-up and maybe even the title track for it’s (moderately) interesting keyboard playing. But the entire album? Man, that’s 8 bucks that I wish I had back.

I remember now why I played the second side of this LP exactly ONCE.

Born in Toronto on April 12, 1954, Travers first picked up the guitar just prior to entering his teens after witnessing a local performance by the great Jimi Hendrix. It wasn't long before Travers was studying the other top rock guitarists of the day (Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, etc.), and paying...
