Upbeat rock 'n' roll group Sharp Practise has released their latest album Steal With Pride. The group formed back in 1999 and this is their fifth album release. Sharp Practise has shown that over time and with experience the band has developed their musical sound and has taken their music in a different, slightly modern direction.
The music features strong melodies and intense guitar rifts that really capture the attention of the listening audience early on. Along with impressive instrumental arrangements, the album pulls from a few rock 'n' roll influences including everything from classic influences to more modern ones.
The album combines each single to tell an overall story and each track flows into the next one effortlessly. The album starts off on an emotional note with the earlier songs taking the time to develop the story. Towards the end of the album, the melodies pick up and the tone embraces classic upbeat and rock 'n' roll.
It is clear that when the band was working on this album that experimenting with instruments and really working on the sound was a high quality. This album feels like the days when artists would come together for a jam session and see what would organically happen.
For fans that like Steal With Pride or are just discovering the band for the first time, it would be worth going back and listening to previous albums. It is refreshing to hear a band only focusing on the music and having fun playing their songs live, instead of focusing on what beats a laptop could produce.
Stand out tracks on the album include, "Good Speech," "Maybe (This Ain't Right)" and "Wish My Girlfriend Was A Vampire."
