American Dream

American Dream by Little Caesar
Released: May 2012
Label: Dirty Deeds
These codger-growling bike-rock vets front-load their chewiest choogles -- opener "Holy Roller" is fast and burly faux ZZ Top about a hell-raising church lady, and "Hard Rock Hell" (ready for a Welsh festival of the same name) amusingly spoofs "lipstick metal with a candy shell" over an AC/DC chug: "Hope my music doesn't make you hurl." "In My Mirror" checks the rearview with some thick funk, "Only a Memory Away" is a convincingly Southern-bluesy hair ballad that MTV might've added in 1987, "The Girl's Rockin'" rather gratuitously references Little Richard and Jerry Lee. Then the wheels spin.
