Album Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist

The full-time lead guitarist for Bon Jovi, accomplished and celebrated guitarist Phil X returned to the studio with his own band, the Drills, to create Stupid Good Lookingsan EP that captures the essence of the heyday of rock ‘n roll with a fresh, modern, youthful energy. 

As per usual, Phil X, who is credited on dozens of albums by some of the biggest names in the rock genre, delivers flawless guitar solos throughout the entire album, one particular standout being on the fourth track, “I Want My Money Back.” Drummer Matt Chamberlain’s crazy fills take center stage on the opening track, “Something to Say” (the lead single, for which the band also released a creative, funny music video), adding an extra burst of controlled chaos to an already high-energy song. The Drills close out the EP with “Saddest Girl in the World,” a slower track that still packs the same emotional punch as the others. Phil shows off not only his mastery of the guitar, but his impressive vocal range as well, ending almost every song on a dazzling high note. The backing vocals provide a full, rich rock sound, and catchy choruses combined with intricate solos make for a truly irresistible album.

Later this month, Phil X and the Drills are making a trip out to the West Coast to premiere these six new songs live, with support from Dave Keckhut and Made 'n' America. With Stupid Good Lookings only being Volume 1 of a longer project, however, expect more big moves from the band later on this year!
