Barbe-Q-Barbies – All Over You

Band: Barbe-Q- Barbies
Album: All Over You
Release date: June 2012 (Europe)
Genre: Rock
Label: Sound of Finland

‘All Over You’ is the debut album from the Finnish, all-female rock band Barbe-Q-Barbies. The album was originally released back in 2010 and it will be re-released this year with a brand new cover.

The opening track ‘Spell’ is enough to convince me that Barbe-Q-Barbies aims to become the female homage to AC/DC. Just listen to the guitar riffs and tell me you’re not tempted to sing along to the chorus! The singer’s voice is perfectly suited for this type of rock and, as the next few tracks show, the background singers complement her very well.

The chorus part in their cover Sweet’s hit track ‘Wig-Wam Bam’ is seriously catchy. Same goes for ‘Twisted Little Sister’ which proves once and for all that these girls know how to rock. What I particularly like about the track are the skilfully executed guitar riffs. So far there’s not a single weak track on here as each song offers more of the same catchy rock tunes loved by the fans. ‘My Salvation’ for example sounds like a crowd-pleaser with an ultra catchy chorus that has a way of staying in your head.

‘Rockstar’ gives you a taste of the singer’s gig repertoire thanks to comments like “give me some of that guitar” and “come on girls!” mixed in with the music. It’s pretty clear that the singer, Niki doesn’t lack any charisma. Other highlights include: the catchy rock track ‘Escort’ which reveals the guitarist’s talent ensuring that the riffs and solos won’t go unnoticed, and the title track which once again shows that Niki and the girls know how to rock your world!
