The Stolen Babies are not your typical rock band. The lead singer plays an accordion. How often does anyone in a rock band play an accordion? Their CD, “Naught,” is not typical either. There are tracks, like “Don’t Know,” that are definitely metal. The opening track, ” Behind the Days,” could be on a the soundtrack to any Tim Burton movie.
All of the songs sound fresh and crisp. Kudos to the production team, which included Ulrich Wild.
None of the band members are slackers as far as musicianship. Current band members are Dominique Persi, Gil Sharone and Rani Sharone. The group has been playing in bands together since 1997, which is apparent by how well they play together.
My personal favorite song on the album is “Never Come Back.” It’s a mixture of all of the Stolen Babies’ best elements. It’s a little heavy and a little bit “Corpse Bride.”
All in all, I really enjoyed this album. It was thoroughly entertaining. Hopefully, I can catch them on their tour this year.
