I can’t recall such an extensive PR campaign for a Naz album, the resultant buzz, the excitement that has prevailed over these last couple of months. So what is the verdict for Rock n Roll Telephone?

Will first impressions on playing it be similar to the experiences of years ago for such albums as No Mean City, “incredible”, or Malice “eh?”

One of the reasons I love Naz is that you are virtually guaranteed to find a tune in every song on any album. This, though, was not quite the case with The Newz but thankfully order was mostly restored with Big Dogz.

Crank up the volume and let proceedings commence…There are some seriously good songs delivered in the traditional meaty Naz way with Boom Bang Bang the best opener since Hire and Fire. One Set of Bones keeps the tempo high with in your face guitars and finely paced bass and drums and I’m sure will develop into, after more listens, a great Naz album track. I am still trying to catch the tune as it is a bit stop start, though good guitar riff. Next up we have the community singing style of Back2B4, (hints of Stuck In The Middle With You) making this an endearing laid back slice of acoustic Naz at their best.

Winter Sunlight, a beautiful mellow song (hints of Child In The Sun singing from Dan and Pete), though to have it as track four immediately after Back2B4 I feel contributes to losing a bit of tempo on the album at this stage. That is immediately put right with the album’s title track and Jimmy’s glorious meaty and mean guitar work supported by a kick ass performance on bass. At times the lyrics are a bit clumsy yet overall a great Naz track to take you by the throat and drag you through the meanest and roughest Russian airport.

The last Album with Dan McCafferty and what a way to go for him though the band will continue with a new vocalist.

The album is very heavy and tight as a unit and perhaps the best we have heard in recent years and that is saying something both in the studio and 'live' because if there is one thing you get with Nazareth it is quality. The highlights for me are Boom Bang Bang, Back 2B4, Rock N Roll Telephone and God of the Mountain really does leave you stood on a peak! CD 2 carries 2 more good tracks and then some 'live' ones for the archives. The whole package is quality, hard rock and blues and I do hope Dan despite health problems he might be able to develop some solo work. There is still much to offer. I cannot believe after first hearing these boys in Germany with my cousin in his record collection when I was nine years old (1969), seeing them live and after years of good albums they are still cutting it in 2014. You wont see many bands of today still around over 40 years later.

Well done boys!

Ray

so it is a shame that Dan has had to leave the band during their second peak. The album is full of energy, the kind that would make a lot of younger bands blush. The music is a fine mix between ear numbing heaviness and a few softer songs. If you're going to go out, might as well go out on top.

A fantastic album and a wonderful send off to the bands original frontman.

Completing the trilogy that started with 2008's 'The Newz' followed by 'Big Dogz' in 2011,we now have 'Rock n Roll Telephone',excellent title,it has a ring to it (sorry- couldnt help myself).Once again produced by Yann Rouiller,he again creates a razorsharp production,truth be told it could be BIG DOGZ part 2,if you werent fond of that album,then this may not be for you.

Eleven tracks in 44 mins,short and sweet,straight to the point, the album follows the pattern as before rockers (Boom Bang Bang/One Set Of Bones) and ballads (Winter Sunlight/The Right Time),some of the lyrics could easily be applied/interpreted as reflecting on Dans health and resultant departure,there's definitely a melancholy,sadness to some of the tracks,which is understandable.The disc closes with two belters 'Speakeasy' and 'God of the Mountain'.

Disc 2 at approx 35 mins could have easily been placed on the main cd, 2 studio tracks ,'Wanna Feel Good' being the best,probably too upbeat for the main disc and a selection of 'Live ' tracks,ranging from an average 'Big Boy' too a superb rendition of 'Sunshine' and a manic version of 'Expect No Mercy.

Personally i still think Big Dogz tops this one but its a great way to bow out,thanks Dan for the music and the memories.

When Nazareth were recording Rock ‘N’ Roll Telephone in 2013 there was no indication it would be the last with gravel-voiced
co-founder Dan McCafferty.

However breathing problems during shows in August of that year and a diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (C.O.P.D.) led to the front man’s disappointing but sensible decision to retire after 45 years with the Scottish rockers.

Given those circumstances the rose in the heather tinted reaction from fans posting 5 Star reviews of the album was hardly a surprise, but the truth of the musical matter is the band’s twenty-third studio release is no Nazareth classic.

What the band have produced however is a predominately mid-tempo, guitar-based rock album in the style of 2011’s Big Dogz, but with a little more light and shade.

Opener 'Boom Bang Bang' doesn’t have anything like the musical intensity the title suggests and the number never gets beyond third gear but it has a great, funky riff-rock shuffle and comes complete with a throwaway but infectious chorus.

'One Set of Bones' has a grungier attitude but retains the classic Nazareth sound; it’s a perfect contrast to the acoustic-based songs 'Back 2B4' (a simple but pleasant sing-a-long number that implores us to have no regrets) and the ballad 'Winter Sunlight,' a track that wouldn’t have been out of place as the light relief back in the band’s classic album after classic album era.

Unfortunately references to classic Narareth are few and far between on the second half of the album.
