Aussie rockers Koritni are back with their follow up disc to 2007’s excellent debut, “Lady Luck“.
On “Game of Fools” Koritni you will find some pretty rocking tunes powered by the excellent vocals of Lex Koritni.
The CD kicks off with the hard rocking, up tempo number “155”. I heard a clip of this song and bought the disc immediately. This song sets the stage for a bunch of cool rockers on “Game of Fools”.
The songs “Roll the Dice” and “By My Side” reminds me a lot of Buckcherry. I bet Josh Todd wishes he wrote these tunes. Both songs are better than a lot of the stuff on Black Butterfly.
“V8 Fantasy” is a song that seems to be tailor made for NASCAR. Ok, not really, but if the NASCAR execs hear this tune, they will probably want to use it. Some of the lyrics are:
“Drop the clutch and ride with me
A small block V8 fantasy
A torque ain’t cheap
With a 5 point 2 litre engine running hot
I tailgate slap it back to fourth
Hit the straight with a sling shot
The speed of lights just a gear away
Burning octane in my veins
A sideways slide always in control
People say that I’m insane
400 horses in my engine bay
Well I’ve got it made… yeah”
If this kick ass tune doesn’t pump you up, nothing else will. This is one of my favorite songs of 2009.
“You Vs. Me” breaks up the pace of this album but taking it down a couple of notches. It is the first mid-tempo tune on “Game of Fools”. This song could easily be a massive hit for Koritni. What an awesome tune!!
“Nobody’s Home” is a quick upbeat rocker that will have you breaking out the air guitar.
By all rights, “The Devil’s Daughter” ought to be a radio hit everywhere. Lex Koritni’s voice shines on this excellent album closer.
“Game of Fools” is no sophomore slump for Koritni. This is a solid hard rock album all the way through, and a worthy disc to add to your collection! I have been playing this CD for over three weeks now, and it seems to get better with every listen.
