Overall Impression: Veteran rockers The Silvers have joined forces to turn out a new album, and release their newly remastered track Out Of This World. Opening with a crunchy guitar lick over a moderately quick tempo, Out Of This World shows signs of life in the form of classic rock n’ roll. Frontman Mick Orton sings colloquially with a confident presence and a touch of wit. Lyrically, the tune raises a middle finger to those out of their mind who drive us crazy. A killer guitar solo rips through the tune’s atmosphere before the final verse. Overall, Out Of This World by The Silvers shows that these experienced rockers still got it, and can jam with the best of them.
Strongest Point(s): The tune avoids having a cut and dried chorus by changing the lyrics slightly each time. It’s a nice touch that keeps listeners focused on the lyrics, while still being able to sing along.
Target Audience Appeal: Fans of classic rock & roll will enjoy Out Of This World by The Silvers.
Artist target suggestions: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Clash, Led Zeppelin, The Monkees, The Doors, The Kinks, The Eagles, Brooklyn Bridge, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Birds, The Yardbirds, The Everly Brothers
