Scheer Energy - Hollywood Notions

STYLE: Country
RATING 4 4 4 4
LABEL: Independent
FORMAT: CD Mini-album

Reviewed by Simon Carpenter

A very ordinary six-track (22 min) demo disc by a very ordinary country-based band from the USA.  Its only redeeming feature for me is the more than useful guitar playing of Jimmy Luttrell.  However, I would not quite accord him the 'legend' status he is given in the sleeve notes.  The lyrics are pretty dire as well - "He swallowed his pride/And he dipped his hide/ In the river, and he ended up all right".  In a song about Naaman would you believe?  Not my cup of tea at all.
