Album Review: Baltimoore – Quick Fix
On-off project of Swedish vocalist Björn Lodin, Baltimoore have been around for 20 years now, and this, their eleventh album, is definitely a record produced by a band perfectly confident in their direction and what they want to do with it.
Undeniably classic rock, Quick Fix has a definite Deep Purple / UFO vibe to it. As well as the intricate groove-heavy guitars, this record is almost unique in the 21st century in relying heavily on Hammond organ, providing a bizarre and almost lounge-act counterpoint to Björn’s gruff yet sweet vocal.
As with much new material coming out in the classic rock arena, this record does suffer from sounding a little dated, being more at home on the 70’s rock circuit than an edgy new bands bill. But nevertheless, it’s quite a fun, sweet groovy collection of songs, and makes me want to dig out my copy of the Still Crazy soundtrack.
