All I Want Is Everything
'All I Want' is the third release from Australian hard rockers Ragdoll.
- Genre: Rock: Hard Rock
- Release Date: 2013
With an intense desire to inject new life into the music they love; Ragdoll’s mission is to dismantle the sometimes tired genres of Classic Rock, Hard Rock and Progressive Rock and rebuild them, producing a modern hybrid that both transcends and revitalises the traditional rock genres. The result is a sound that’s bombastic and intricate, a sound that’s full and brash, leaving many to question how this trio is capable of producing a live sound more akin to that of a five-piece.
At the heart of the Ragdoll sound is a classic tried and proven structure, a tight rhythm section with Barrett on drums and Rafferty on bass and lead vocals, built around Todd’s guitar. The sound hinges on a number of influences including, as you might expect, rock greats Led Zeppelin, classic Whitesnake and Van Halen, as well as Prog Rock masters Rush and late eighties era Queensryche.
An absolutely stellar EP from Ragdoll, and I had high expectations since I loved their two previous releases as well. One of those bands that just goes straight to my heart. Great music, fantastic musicianship all around, and lyrics with real power.
