Full Time (Arclight)
By: Mike SOS
RPG is a hard rockin', beer drinkin', blood drawin' outfit from Virginia whose 13-track, pedal to the metal, non-stop retro rock 'n' roll shindig of an album is a pleasure to listen to, as these guys take you back to a time when bruising, ballsy blues rock with a heavy bottom end ruled the world. Imagine the MC5, The Stooges, Aerosmith, Grand Funk Railroad, Monster Magnet, AC/DC, and Motorhead on one bill, and that kind of sums up the wide range given off by FULL TIME. Tracks like "Song of Evil" impose the punk rock kick to the groin while "Clockin' In" combine fuzz guitar with a Southern rock-y, Lynyrd Skynyrd vibe and "Paralyzed" contains the right concoction of sleaze and haze to make it the album's shining moment. No time to stop and think here, kids, as RPG burns through some straightforward, meat and potatoes style rock with bursts of hearty, high-octane hard rock. Be prepared to consume the rock 'n' roll voodoo RPG is working.
