      The Great Rock Revival

      Review by Anthony Nicastro



      Based out of Eustis, Florida, Dylan Mathews & the Flips bring their album, The Great Rock Revival to the mainstream.  This album is very solid and has a callback feel the bands of the 1960’s, such as Cream fused with an alternative rock vocal style.

      Tracks such as “Let’s Hit the Road,” ‘Pedal Down,” and “Don’t Look Down” grab the listener with an infectious intros, licks, accompanied by a wah pedal laden guitar solos that could be taken out of the pages of both Eric Clapton and David Gilmour.        

      Track “Don’t Look Down” lets the bass take the forefront both during the intro and the midsection, which is sure to win over a crowd live. 

      The band shows that they can write deep felt songs. “Prophet” begins with a very clean intro with heartfelt lyrics, which can be heard in lyrics such as “I will set you free” and a dizzying guitar solo. 

      “Rolling Bones” holds true to the straightforward rock theme album and the repeating chorus is sure to get stuck in the heads of many listeners. 

      By far, the heaviest track on the album, “The Way” feels like a callback to bands such as Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden.  Rumbling intro, catchy chorus, and an outro chant that comes out of nowhere and would bring a smile to even Bruce Dickenson’s face.

      “This Ain’t Right” brings the tempo back up with a catchy drum intro.  The mid section is by far the most unique part of the song, if ever brief.  “True Living” starts with a blazing guitar solo and deep lyrics, such as, “Why slow down” and “You give is what you get.” 

      “Yeah” opens with a lively drum intro. The verse has a G&R feel to it, which is quite welcoming, followed by a dual chorus (‘we will survive’ and chants of ‘yeah’ combined). The intro falls into the category of straight up thrash with a defining section of double bass kicks. 

      In conclusion, I really enjoyed listening to this album, and look forward to their follow up effort.
