Pink Cream 69 has been putting out high-quality Hard Rock releases for 20 years now, with their last one, 2004’s Thunderdome, being another solid, crowd-pleasing dose of ear candy. Their newest disc, In10sity, is the group’s first for the Frontiers Records label. As you probably guessed from the punny title, In10sity is Pink Cream 69’s 10th studio album. In10sity is 12 tracks in length, although the European version includes a lucky 13th song, “My Darkest Hour.”

Pink Cream 69 knows what works for them and they don’t alter their standard approach on In10sity, which will be comforting news for their fans. So once again, expect lots of big guitar riffs, fun melodies that get stuck in your head, catchy vocals and sing-a-long choruses, lots of energy, and a general sense of fun. In10sity is a disc that puts a smile on your face as you listen to it, even though you know it’s not that much different than most of band’s earlier albums … not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Most of the songs on In10sity are fairly fast and punchy, although the band does slow down a bit for a couple of ballad-esque songs like “Last Train To Nowhere” and “Desert Land.” “Desert Land” is a bit of an odd song, though, being only around a minute and a half long. Outside of those two tracks – which are good, by the way – the rest of the album is vintage Pink Cream 69 Hard Rock done in their standard up-tempo style. Among the better songs are leadoff track “Children of the Dawn,” “A New Religion,” “Stop This Madness,” “It’s Just A State Of Mind,” and “Wanna Hear You Rock.” “Wanna Hear You Rock” is basically “Thunderdome Part II,” but it’s still a cool arena-friendly rocker. All of In10sity‘s tracks are good overall and the album moves along nicely, with no lulls or dead spots.

Musically, In10sity is well-done: the riffs from Alfred Koffler and Uwe Reitenauer are big and fat, and the solos are well-placed and nicely played. Vocalist David Readman is strong and charismatic as usual, and the production job of bassist Dennis Ward is solid, clear, and polished. In10sity is a top-notch package all-around, although the album’s cover art is somewhat strange, even with the presence of rainbow-painted female flesh. It’s eye-catching, though.

Hard Rock fans will like In10sity a lot … it delivers the Hard Rock goods in high style.

    Gary was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of the small Ontario, Canada town of Sault Ste. Marie, right on the border of Michigan, USA. When it comes to Metal and Hard Rock, Gary likes quite a few different bands, from stalwarts like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, to newer, hard-hitting groups such as Primal Fear, Hammerfall, and Paragon. Other favorites include the likes of Nightwish, Running Wild, Therion, Accept, Stratovarius, Dream Evil, Helloween, Rammstein, Dirty Looks, Crimson Glory, Tristania, and Gamma Ray. He thinks AC/DC deserves a paragraph all their own though.
