Bonafide lit up the Swedish music scene with their debut disc in 2007 with their straight up, straight ahead approach to rock and roll. After pushing the limits of gigging, Bonafide returns with another solid work of sharply focused hard rock on Something's Dripping. Drawing heavily, and quite expertly at that, from a strong blues-based boogie rock foundation, the songs on this disc remind of and move along with the brisk excitement of early AC/DC. The infectious groove oozing from the rhythm section keeps your toe tapping and your heart pounding. If you listen to songs like Dirt Bound or Fill Your Head with Rock in the car, you're bound to get a speeding ticket. The pace is brisk and fun reminding you that rock and roll was first and foremost meant to be a good time. If Dog, Hard Livin' Man or Straight Shooters, a duet with Crucified Barbara's Mia Coldheart, don't get you up, fist-pumping, and headbanging, then you need to ship yourself off to the old folks home. Simply, Bonafide's Something's Dripping is great rock and roll, one heck of a good time. Quite recommended!
