Pushking - The World As We Love It

Pushking is a Russian band that's been around since the mid-90s, sound like they are recording in the late 80s, and never really heard in the U.S. until this album in 2011. So basically they have no real chance for commercial success over here. But that doesn't mean this isn't a good album for us at the 80sMetalServer. The World As We Love It is a double album or re-recorded Pushking classics (I'm assuming they were classics in Russia; the band is somewhat popular over there), but with a shitload of American musical artist guest spots. Check out this list of all-stars on the album:

Paul Stanley
Billy F Gibbons
Alice Cooper
Steve Vai
Joe Bonamassa
Glenn Hughes
Nuno Bettencourt
Steve Lukather
Joe Lynn Turner
Eric Martin
Jeff Scott Soto
John Lawton
Graham Bonnet
Udo Dirkschneider
Dan McCafferty
Jorn Lande
Keri Kelli


I'd say that it's pretty obvious with this line-up that the band, or at the very least the band's management, is trying to break into the U.S. market. Unfortunately for them there isn't too much of a market left for 80s and 90s sounding rock in the U.S. Still I recommend this album. For the most part each song starts out, at least for me, somewhat unremarkable. But before the song is over, the hook is in my head and my toe is tapping. (Actually I'm more than likely air drumming in my car like a doofus.)

Here's the track listing:

1. Intro
2. Nightrider
3. It'll Be Ok
4. Troubled Love
5. Stranger's Song
6. Cut The Wire
7. My Reflections After Seeing The "Schindler's List" Movie
8. God Made Us Free
9. Why Don't You?
10. I Believe
11. Tonight
12. Private Own
13. Open Letter To God
14. Nature's Child
15. I Love You
16. Head Shooter
17. Heroin
18. My Simple Song
18. Kukarracha

I won't lie to you. It's sure not perfect. I thought the momentum kind of falls off some during the second half of the album, but it finishes awesomely with the big sing-along finale of Kukarracha. Bildo says it's a worthy addition to any rock music collection. I give it a happy dance rating:
:bildo:

Do you really think the "Bildo Dance Rating" is a good way to recommend an album? :lol:

Oh, alright. Sold... and ordered.

Well, I haven't ordered anything in like 4 days. :wink:

Yep... No doubt.

It's really starting to feel like it's just you and me in here. Despite all the hellfire and brimstone whenever I mention this place shutting down, at this point, we could just shoot the shit via e-mail and it'd be weeks before anyone else noticed. :lol:

Incidentally, the vendor I ordered this from canceled the order, so I reordered it today.

He played guitar with Uncle Alice and the Cooptones... which explains why you probably haven't heard much of his work. :wink:

Link to his site. Look like he's working with Pushking again performing with them in Russia and working on their new album supposedly coming out in a couple of months. Says there will be a few guests again.

I just started listening to this album... not bad so far.

It's a pretty safe bet for me... Apparently, these guys have been among the most popular hard rock bands in Russia for the last couple of decades, but nobody's ever heard of them because all of their regular material was sung in Russian.

Whew. :lol:

I found this review, along with a run-down on who plays on which song:

The verdict is that The World As We Love It arrived with little to no expectations and is a surprisingly good album.

Yeah, they summed it up nicely.
