Pushking – The World as We Love It
Star-studded rock albums can be a dicey affair, as quite often they can lack cohesion. But the set-up for the 2011 studio effort by Russian rockers Pushking, The World as We Love It, is an intriguing and promising one. The group is supposedly popular in their homeland, but hasn’t caused a ripple elsewhere. Hence, the plan was to re-record some of the group’s best tunes from their discography, with some of hard rock/heavy metal’s biggest names dropping by and doing their thing (including Paul Stanley, Alice Cooper, Billy Gibbons, Steve Vai, Glenn Hughes, etc.). It turns out that the style of rock that Pushking specialize in is that of the commercial/mainstream variety, with an unmistakable ’80s flair. After a 15-second intro/screamfest, we’re treated to what may be the best track on the whole album, a blues-pop workout that features Gibbons on vocals and guitar, “Nightrider.” But the majority of the selections here are highly commercial attempts at radio acceptance, as evidenced by “I Believe” and “I Love You.” For fans of rockers of the early 21st century who still greatly admire the big ’80s, Pushking’s World as We Love It contains all the bombast and studio gloss you could possibly want.
