Rock ‘N Roll Love Affair is the second full-length album from the Australian Glam Metal/Theatrical Rock band Crosson. The 10 new tracks feature some very good production. Crisp and clear, and very well mixed, Rock ‘N Roll Love Affair is a very good sounding record. Some of the backing vocals are a little shaky, and some of the lead guitar work is a bit sloppy, but Glam Rock is all about the live show.

The singer has a bit of a Talking Heads vibe, that sort of mechanical delivery, and some of the lyrics are a bit forced. “Weak At The Knees (For A Hot Brunette)” and “Rock ‘N Roll Love Affair” in particular seems to exemplify that. Overall though, Crosson has put forth a solid effort, and a very listenable record. “Merry Go Round” is one of the stronger tracks, although it will evoke inevitable Bon Jovi comparisons.

The listener is going to find stripped-down, simple Rock and Roll Music here. No complex arrangements or elaborate melodic dexterity. Fans of Glam Metal, Theatrical Rock, early Kiss, and early Mötley Crüe, and of course Crosson’s debut release should check out Rock ‘N Roll Love Affair.

    Stevie was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio. He is currently the lead guitarist for Melodic Rock band Red Reign, based in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Red Reign toured with Tesla in 2017, and shared the stage with Dokken, FireHouse, Lita Ford, Kix, Quiet Riot, and others at various dates around the US in 2018. Stevie heard his first KISS record at the age of 6 and was immediately hooked on Rock and Roll guitar. Over the course of years his tastes evolved, graduating from KISS to Ozzy and Van Halen; and then into Hair Metal. Over time, harder and faster music drew him. Bands like Metallica, Pantera, and Anthrax led the way, and Killswitch Engage took him over the top. Stevie has a deep passion for the guitar, not only playing them, but building them as well.
