"Like No Other" (Delicious Records; 2007)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Finding good rock'n'roll is like finding a dollar bill on the ground. Discovering a great rock band is like finding a 5-spot.
The Billy Martini Show is a band that plays every song as though it were for me personally. The music is fun and full of life. The presentation of the music is easy to absorb, carefree and loaded with catchy hooks, all of which just makes it more fun.
"Like No Other" is a CD by a band that obviously likes to party, have a good time and make great music. Although the band is best known as a cover band, this release of original material proves them to be an outstanding band with a sound all their own.
"Like No Other" is the name of the release and, in my opinion, nobody does it like The Billy Martini Show. This band fits perfectly into what we are into here at Rough Edge: solid music, quality musicianship, a band that doesn't take themselves too seriously, that plays the music the way they want to and has a great time doing it.
The Billy Martini Show showcases some outstanding musicians. Once again, allow me to say that The Billy Martini Show's "Like No Other" is indeed like no other. This CD will surely make my ten best list for the year.

The Billy Martini Show is Hard and Refreshing. Big Guitars, Thunder Drums, and Bass Thumping, Like No Other will get any party jumping. Pay attention to songs "Like No Other", "Sniffin Gin" and "Red Carpet Boogie" to feel it. -- DJ Tom
