CD REVIEW: THE DECADE OF QUEEN V by Queen V
(Royal Noise Records)

All hail the Queen! Queen V, that is. ‘The Decade Of Queen V’ the new release from feme fatal to rocker, Queen V. is loaded with enough rock and roll dynamite to level a city block ten times over. The songs span Queen V’s career with songs that are strong and rock solid! I kid you not, you can’t play this album loud enough. The old saying “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” definitely applies here. An unfortunate axiom in music history is that rock music has been and perhaps always will be a “All Boys Club” dominated scene. That’s not to say there haven’t been any notable females in the history of rock music, but few of them were ever fully embraced. I’m here to tell you that Queen V is the real rock and roll deal. What makes this recording a remarkable listen is that it manages to run the gamut of emotions through the course of only eleven songs. All you have to do is hit play and listen. From the opening note of the rocking, “Revolution Baby” Queen V will have your undivided attention. The same can be said about the next three tracks, the lead off single, “America”, “Cry Your Eyes Out” and the guitar driven mover, “Good Enough”. It just gets better from there with the ballsy “My Machine, which features Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine on guitar and the album closer, the party rock anthem, “Wasted”, a song written by Lemmy from Motorhead, which he sings on along with Queen V. There’s a reason why rock royalty like Lemmy and Tom Morello wanted to lend their talents on this album. They recognized that this lady is an amazing talent and can deliver the rock and roll goods! Talk about getting a stamp of approval! I mentioned earlier that rock music may be considered an “All Boys Club”, after listening to ‘A Decade Of Queen V.’, there is no doubt in my mind that Queen V. could give the gents a run for their money! If you don’t have Queen V. in your collection of rock music you haven’t even started one yet. – Highly Recommended
