LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!,
This review is from: Top Shelf Content (Audio CD)
I have seen this band quite a few times now, including supporting Black Stone Cherry and The Darkness. I love this album, its not over-produced and it captures a lot of the raw live energy of the band. This is a great collection of songs, I love their signature track Overrated and many of the other songs are strong in their own right, along with a couple of cleverly crafted semi-ballads. I wondered how the band would fare when their energetic drummer Andy Burlace reluctantly gave up his slot carrying the sticks, but in new drummer Joe Evans they have found a capable replacement who does add a new dimension to their sound. Brothers James and Chris Ready share the guitar duties and Alex Rosedale has established himself as a fine bass player. Walkway are a tight band, James has some amazing lead guitar licks for such a young lad and all in all Walkway have what it takes to make it in the rock business - I think they just need a decent break or a slot as support to an established band to get some exposure outside of East Anglia.
There are a lot of well known groups out there falling well short of the standard Walkway have reached with Top Shelf Content - its raw, its fresh and its rocky and I would recommend it to anyone. Catch them live too if you can ....
