Review: Cherie Currie of The Runaways rocks on 'Reverie' album SPECIAL


By Markos Papadatos Apr 19, 2015 in Music


Singer-songwriter Cherie Currie of The Runaways is back with her brand new studio album, "Reverie," which is rock music masterclass.


It opens with the upbeat and spitfire, rocking title track "Reverie," and it is followed by the hypnotic "Inner You," which will put the listener in a rock trance. "Is It Day or Night" has a catchy, sing-along chorus to it, while her vocals are reminiscent of Debbie Harry from Blondie, which should be taken as a compliment. "Shades of Me" is a well-crafted duet ballad with her son, Jake Hays. In "Queen Of The Asphalt Jungle," the listener can recall rock queen Joan Jett.


"American Nights" is a nonchalant party anthem, that Currie simply nails. "Dark World" has an eerie mood to it, in a subtle and haunting vocal performance. The highlight track on the album is "Believe" thanks to its superb orchestral arrangement, where her vocals are reminiscent of Melissa Etheridge. "I'm Happy" is yet another top-notch autobiographical ballad that Currie crushes. It closes with the inspirational and liberating "Another Dream."
