"Hollywood Ending" by Frankie Whyte and the Dead Idols is pure angst ridden rock n' roll. There is no shortage of attitude with this very live-sounding EP. You feel as though you are in the in the front row at a sweaty, energetic rock show. Stunning electric guitar riffs, driving rhythms and gritty female vocals fuse to produce a very memorable sound. Furthermore, the song-writing on this album is very refined, making every one of these songs radio-ready. With highly melodic, soaring choruses, this band has managed to produce a collection laden with rock anthems. Favorites include the title track, "Hollywood Ending," with a KISS-esque guitar riff exploding out of the speakers. "Home" fills your ears with lovely noise and has a great fist-pumping rhythm. Moreover, "Who Your Friends Are" features a great vocal performance and a pleasant pop sensibility. If you enjoy rock with an edgy attitude, this CD is definitely worth a listen.-William and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team
