Definitely not an essential release, but that's not to say it's not worth checking out.

Israel is more famous for its ongoing conflicts and religious connotations than producing Rock bands, but that's exactly where Chase The Ace hails from. They have been around for a while under a different name and releasing albums in their native Hebrew, but 'Are You Ready' is their first English-language international release.

The immediate approach of CTA is of the Sleaze/Glam variety, but with none of the vain posturing normally associated with the genre. There is a healthy sense of humour apparent in the lyrics as tongues are firmly planted in cheeks throughout the bulk of this album, throwing in some Punky attitude and AC/DC-style Rock 'n' Roll riffage certainly adds to the enjoyment. The vocals of Rio Vito Peleg can grate occasionally as they veer somewhat off-kilter, but somehow add to the quirky and off-beat nature of the music.

High-octane Rockin' numbers like 'The Cat Is On The Loose', 'Rock Bottom Rock 'N' Roll', the heavier 'California', 'Raise Your Glass', the Van Halen-ish 'Tapped Out' and 'Take Me Home' rub shoulders with some surprisingly decent and melancholy ballads 'Change My Ways', 'Bring You Back' and 'Feel Like A Fool', while (possibly their nod to Spinal Tap's 'Lick My Love Pump') 'Morning Wood' is a gentle acoustic instrumental. The incendiary 'Dear Deamon' is something of a left-field oddity, as what promises to be a searing Rocker is let down by chorus that is wacky to say the least – you have to hear it to understand.

Definitely not an essential release with the amount of superb albums available this month, but that's not to say it's not worth checking out.
