Pretty Maids - 1987 - Future world

Post by The ripper on Wed 23 Sep - 9:42






Released 20 April 1987

Pretty Maids deserve praise for their chameleon-like approach to song craft.  
On a Pretty Maids album, there were no rules (Thunderdome!).  
Epic heavy metal, AOR, and hard rock were all in play on Future World.  
And with singer Ronnie Atkins providing two distinct voices (rough and clean),
the Maids added another layer of dimensionality to their arsenal.  
These attributes made 1984’s Red, Hot And Heavy a masterful buffet by this group of ridiculously dressed Danes.  
But Future World just doesn’t come close to that record.  
Except for the rousing album opener Future World, this LP just doesn’t have the songs to rise above.  
Of course, the execution was top-notch (this wasn’t Pretty Maid’s first rodeo),
but some quirky lyrics (no, Yellow Rain is not a euphemism for urination), and stale hooks keep Future World down.  
The title track is a beast, but the rest I can take or leave.
