This is a solo project from one of the founding members of Restless, and does just as the title sugests. This is a real neo-rockabilly sound, pounding slap bass with a tight cutting guitar, the musianship is excellent throughout. If you grew up with the neo scene of the 80's you'll love this, however if you like your rockin to have more of the traditional '50's sound then approach with this caution, hence the three stars rating, it could have a slightly limited appeal to the wider rockin scene.
The opening track Haunted House is instantly catchy, other highlights include Like an H-Bomb, recalling the effect of the sound of a slappin bass on the writer, Road Running Man and The Crossroads are also strong numbers. My personal favourite, Ready to Go is a solid hotrodding song that should become favourite live. It should be said that Ben has written all the tracks on the album and in the main they are easily equal to the stuff he did with Restless, fans of them should not hesitate to purchase this album.
