Elegantly Wasted are a band from Hollywood, California that plays hard rock with a touch of glam metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Dog Years" which was released by Flaco Music.
Powerful sounding bass starts off the album before adding in melodic guitar riffs and vocals and you can also hear elements of mainstream rock and glam metal in their musical sound along with some solos and leads and you can also hear back up shouts in their music at times and after awhile clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording.
There are a decent amount of classic rock element s in the bands musical sound but with more of a modern day production and after awhile spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a touch of alternative rock and a good portion of the bands music sounds like it could of easily been played on rock stations during the 70's and 80's.and halfway throughout the reocording the band also brings in a few power ballads.
Elegantly Wasted plays a very retro style of 70's style hard rock on this recording and brings in a glam metal edge to give the music a more upbeat feeling as well as making their songs sound more modern, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Elegantly Wasted are a very great sounding hard rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fire Away" "Tattoos And Memories" "Love is A Killer" and "Under The Tide". 8 out of 10.
