Flash: In Public

In Public

Release Date: 
Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Flash is an English Rock that first formed in 1971. They released 3 albums before disbanding in 1973. However, they are back in the studio and will be releasing a new album soon and embarking on a tour soon. Before their new album, they decided to release a live concert album from their show in Kansas City in 1973. The live concert album is entitled “Flash: In Public” and Shakefire had a chance to review it.
This album was full of rock nostalgia, but had some flaws that hindered the experience. The instrumentals were very impressive and took you back to a time of Rock where hair and the music ruled the world. I loved the solos, but felt the intros were a bit too long and prolonged the song. The lyrics were also good for their time, but the singing was more annoying than anything else. The vocals did not add any value to the songs or do the lyrics any justice. There were only 7 songs on the whole cd, but it took more than an hour to listen to it all. If the instrumentals weren’t so good, I would have turned it off or skipped most of the cd.
If you love Rock and the 70’s this is a great cd for you to own. I just don’t recommend expecting to hear any good vocals or modern sounds. This is the perfect gift for any Flash fans or rock enthusiast, but will not be favorable for any other fans of other genres. I am a bit split by this album because I loved some parts of it, but hated the rest. For those reasons, I am giving this album a “C-.”
