February 23rd marks the U.S. release of “Non Stop Rock ‘N’ Roll,” the fourth album from Norwegian rock band Wig Wam. Now I have to be completely honest. When I was given the opportunity to review this album, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’d never even heard of Wig Wam. But after listening, I can say with the utmost certainty that there’s a reason why these guys are known as the Norwegian Glam Kings. This stuff is glam metal at its finest!
Wig Wam had my attention with the very first track, “Do You Wanna Taste It.” This song has a Def Leppard feel with a catchy hookline and harmonies that are almost reminiscent of Queen. And guess what – this album’s title is aptly titled, because the rock doesn’t stop there! The electrifying guitar riffs and hard-driving rhythms in the title track and in “Walls Come Down” are literally worthy of blowing your speakers. You’ll find yourself singing along to the feel-good, melodic hard rock anthems “C’mon Everybody” and “Rocket Through My Heart.” And ladies, not to worry! The boys in Wig Wam haven’t forgotten about you! They’ve included two ballads on this album – “From Here” and “Man In The Moon” – that will melt your panties as well as your heart.
My pick for best song on the album is “Still I’m Burning.” It contains just about every element of a great 80’s style hard rock song: It’s catchy, it’s fun, it has a great (yet very simple) guitar solo, and it has a driving energy that makes you want to throw up the horns!
There are a couple of songs that are a little cheesy, but overall, the album is very good. If you are a fan of ’80’s hard rock and glam metal, this album is a MUST have for your collection. You will not be disappointed!
