Slank: Anthem For The Broken Hearted

They are one of the biggest selling groups in Indonesia. With over 15 million albums in and around their homeland, they have now decided to tackle the Western market. Their first English language album titled Anthem For The Broken Hearted has now hit our shores. Upon listening to this disc, there is a good chance that these guys will possibly make a mark upon the United States market. The same market that can't get enough of The Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana should welcome these light rockers with open arms.

Akhadi Wira Satriaji (aka Kaka) the lead singer, has a voice with a slight gravely touch that works well for this fluffy kind of music. The vocal qualities should carry these guys far into the teenage world where music is more a flavor of the day instead of something that stays with you. With anthems for the young such as "I Miss U But I Hate You" and "Devilinu" Kaka and the band should find a place with all of the teenage misses until the next heartthrobs come along.

The band is the biggest thing in their part of the world and should expand their following with this release. But does the world need another group that sounds like they have been turned out by the Disney music factory? If your answer is yes, then by all means, pick up this disc and give it a go.
