Loveless Fascination ~ Starship

Mickey Thomas has always possessed one of the finest voices in rock and this album further cements that well deserved reputation. `Loveless Fascination' is a stellar collection of songs in a slightly heavier vein than the excellent `Love Among The Cannibals' opus, released twenty-four years ago.

This album is superbly produced perfect AOR and a lot lighter than Lou Gramm's solo album but highlights the strength of Mick Jones' songwriting qualities.

Title track Can't Slow Down starts the album off in fine style and is the heaviest track on the album… Read more
