CD Review: Big Wreck Takes You Down "Grace Street" With New Release

Canadian rock band Big Wreck are ready to release their fifth studio album titled "Grace Street." It will be available on February 3rd through Rounder Records and co-insides with a three month North American tour, which began on January 25th. As the roots of Big Wreck began in Boston, MA, their popularity has grown north of the border with their albums receiving numerous JUNO awards.
Their new thirteen-song release begins with the strong vocals of "It Comes As No Surprise" as the band kicks in with Queen-like harmonies and hard rock authority on this opening gem. They lock into the infectious rock groove of "One Good Piece Of Me" as the music gets the blood pumping with its up-beat chorus. The guitars are blazing a trail through "Tomorrow Down," while "Useless" slows the tempo down for this acoustic, heartfelt ballad. The steady rhythm of "A Speedy Recovery" makes the seven-plus minute song move swiftly, until the wonderful guitar solo, which will have you drooling with delight. Big Wreck deliver a classic progressive rock sound on "Diggin In," before finishing their album with the pop/rock of "Floodgates" and Boston-boogie, guitar shuffle instrumental "Skybunk Marche."
