Welcome back Ade...
on 24 February 2014
First off, we get Jake and his Red Dragon Cartel, and now another 80's axe God makes his long overdue return.
Definite nods to former glories, and comparisons to Whitesnake are there for all to see, but a massive nod to Led Zeppelin too, in fact track 2 'Close To You', for me, is 'Black Dog' in every way other than title!! Just listen to that trade off between vocal and guitar!
'Breathing' sounds like something the Scorpions would come up with, and 'Out of Reach' could be the typical Coverdale big ballad, in fact, each listen, apart from widening my grin!, throws up more and more comparisons, but this is obviously just an opinion, and others will hear things differently.
Some people may dock a star for the Comparisons, but not me. I admit, I am easily pleased, but this is a solid slab of exactly the sort of Hard Rockin' musical marvellousness I used to lap up back in the day, and here's hoping we get many more 'Old Schoolers' hitting the recording studios, and getting back out on the road. It doesn't matter if there is little in the way of progression or growth, because, if it ain't broke.... don't try and fix it!!
You know what?? JUST BUY IT!!!!!
