Spice And The RJ Band make no secret out of being inspired by stoner rock bands and from the first notes of "Shave Your Fear" the unit sound like a full-fledged 70’s inspired stonerrock outfit. Compared to the predecessor the expression of Spice And The RJ Band has become a bit more metallic and harsher on the first couple of tracks, but nothing that makes the band sound like they deviate in a big degree from their previous release.
After having heard a couple of the tracks on "Shave Your Fear" you know what you’ll be getting for the rest of the album, and that’s a bit too obvious, when you listen to this album. Furthermore I also have to deduct points from the grading due to the shameless rip off of “Change of Heart” (Tom Petty)] on “No One Told Me”.
The similarities are simply too obvious to ignore and I can’t believe somebody haven’t noticed it in the process of making this album. “Bad Account” is another example of ‘obvious inspiration’ as the opening riff has more than a few similarities with Misfits “Helena” and overall the original ideas on this release happen to be as common as fish with fur.
I don’t mind bands being inspired by more classic virtues, yet when there are hardly any forward-looking aspects on "Shave Your Fear", the embracing of the good ol’ times quickly becomes a tiresome affair.
