2,5 out of 5

One thing for sure, without AC/DC there would be no Sticky Boys. The French hard rock trio has done a decent debut album with "This is rocknroll" and I bet they´re a great party covers band at the local pub if you want your daily dose of AC/DC rock. Sticky Boys has recorded a few really cool 3 chord rockers like "Rocknroll nation", "The world don´t go round" and "Girls in the city", well performed and catchy rocknroll.
But "Bang that head" sounds like a carbon copy of AC/DC´s "Jailbreak" and some of other tunes cannot match the greatest AC/DC clones in the world like Krokus, Airbourne and Trash. I wouldn´t mind seeing Sticky Boys live since they know how to rock but whenever I´m in the mood for some straight ahead rock on CD, I think I´ll go for the real thing instead.
