"Shake Electric"

By Theron Moore

 I started listening to this record and somehow landed in 1976... happily, I might add.  Sweden's Spiders deliver a sweet piece of hard rock superbly catching the groove and atmosphere of a sound and a time since gone.  Ann-Sofie Hoyles vocals are right on for the Spiders with "Shake Electric" at times reminding me of Doro Pesch, Joan Jett and Anne Wilson of Heart, in other words, her vocal range is killer.

"Mad Dog," "Shake Electric" and "Back on the Streets" are the best songs on a record where there's not one bum tune to speak of.  What I like about Spiders is that they're not trying to hit you over the head or go out of their way to convince you  they're genuine and their sound isn't rehash, they let their music do the talking which is proof enough just after a few seconds of listening to "Shake Electric."  Buy this record immediately.
