THE ILLUMINATI
THE ILLUMINATI
LIQUOR AND POKER

Bringing back the boogie into rock ‘n roll is no small task, but Toronto trio The Illuminati have aced Thin Lizzy 101, Skynyrd symposium, and Advanced Motorhead classes, aptly shown on the band’s six-track offering. With a straw in its collective mouth and a bottle of whiskey close at hand, songs like the kick up your heels feel of “On My Way Back Home…Again” could pass for a Molly Hatchet classic, while the supercharged groove of “All the Time in the World” keeps the head bobbing and the fists pumping. Unabashed and unfiltered, this eponymous endeavor is strictly for those about to rock, so don’t put this disc on unless you’re prepared to cut your teeth on some bad ass boogie from the Great White North.
