Badlands third album "Dusk" was actually recorded in 1992 prior to Ray Gillen's departure near the end of the Voodoo Highway Tour. On a basic level it mixes the best of their first two releases (Badlands and Voodoo Highway) and comes out sounding fresh and vital. Ray Gillen had an exceptional voice, perfect for the blues/rock genre within which the band operated. Added to the exceptional chops (more than a Bruce Lee Box set) of guitarist Jake E. Lee (Ozzy Osbourne, Wicked Alliance), Badlands deliver a traditional classic rock record of significant quality. Healer is the opening track and sets the tone, mid-paced and mean sounding. Lyrically there is some standard rock posturing, but there is also an undercurrent of religious imagery (redemption, forgiveness), which could possibly be aligned with Ray Gillen's state of health. (Gillen contracted the AIDS virus and sadly died in 1993 from stomach cancer, I believe). Song wise the aforementioned Healer, Sun Red Sun, The River, The Fire Lasts Forever and Lord knows are up there with anything Badlands every released. Often albums that are "historically" released are a hotch potch of demo's which lack quality and have little cohesion as an album. Fortunately this couldn't be further from the truth with DUSK. Lee's rhythm guitar playing is always a highlight as he seeks to add variance and interest, but always as an enhancement the song. His lead playing is also inventive and includes variety in terms of approach and technique within the confines of the band. In summary we are left with a great album and with a feeling of disappointment that the band couldn't have kept it together longer. Lee commented at the time of Gillen's departure (late 92) that Gillen was pushing for a more commercial approach that he didn't support.Read more ›

Quite simply a stunning final album from the would-be supergroup. Ray Gillen's [RIP] vocals are superlative whilst Jake E Lee's smouldering guitar work is more bluesy than that when he was in Ozzy Osbourne. The rhythm section of Gregg Chaisson and Jeff Martin recalls that of Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice - with the beat firmly in the pocket.
'Sun Red Sun' is possibly the finest track Zeppelin never wrote whilst 'Walking Attitude' is exactly that. A masterpiece! Great production too.

This album is awesome.

Jake E Lee is such an under-rated guitarist, and his tone and playing style are a joy to listen to - loud !

To their credit, Ray Gillen, a soulful vocalist, and the drummer and bassist provide a synergy that is reminiscent of Zeppelin.

Highlights are : 'healer', 'the river', 'lord knows' and 'ride the jack'.

If you like classic hard rock, this purchase is imperative.

It will release endorphins in your brain in a Noah-like flood.

This is an old album released in 1998 which was after the death of their incredible vocalist Ray Gillen in 1993. Badlands released two albums before Dusk, Badlands and Voodoo Highway both superb albums of rock with a bluesy edge. Dusk is no less of a great album with Ray Gillens fantastic vocals and Jake E Lee's expressive guitar licks dominating every track. If you know Badland's work then this is a must have album. Fantastic.

Considering this is really a deluxe demo, the songs and sound are fantastic. How underrated they were and what a shame it ended with bitterness between the band members. Special mention for singer Ray Gillen who I saw sing twice with Sabbath and was one of the best singers that I have ever seen. This is a great secret treasure...Get it while you can!
