Tiger by America Owns the Moon: Album Review
America Owns the Moon is a stellar band creating music pertaining to classic rock and heavy blues. Their album “Tiger”, has a fierce energy emanating from nine solid tracks. The 20th-century scene of rock and roll make audiences refer to it as boomer music, which is a genre that I still hold in high regard since most of my upbringing was a part of it! So, thanks to my Dad, and America Owns the Moon for keeping that spirit alive!
Opening up with the vintage aesthetic of tracks such as “The Hard Way” and “Ping Pong”, the band goes in full throttle with catchy distorted riffs and a voice expressing hard rock. The musical diversity and drumming intensity of “DEGA” are like a jet revvin’ up its engine and preparing for liftoff every time the guitar licks come into the scene. “Freak Out” brings out the charm of surf rock, and a danceable tune as well. The sound of it feels like an 80s prom night, where the seniors go bonkers and groove out in a frenzy to the rough guitar riff pieces.
Most of the album pays tribute to the rock era existing eons ago, but still kept strong through musical history. So each number on the album is fueled with the style of guitars that were more prominent from yesteryear, and sound incredibly nostalgic now. America Owns the Moon surely has an interesting vibe going from their album, with slower tracks such as “Everything Is” showing the band’s softer side before rising into a surprising crescendo.
